OMG Shoes

Ok, so I have a lot to blog about.  I know you know that and you are waiting so patiently for pictures of the past week's events.  I do have a few blogs in the making, but I just haven't been able to concentrate on anything besides this presentation on Denmark that I had to do this morning.  Now we all remember how well I respond to presentation anxiety (don't remember?  re-visit: Nervous Pervous).  This time the presentation was an hour long and in front of the whole department!  Luckily a lot of people were out on vacation, but that didn't stop my nerves.   All weekend long I couldn't sleep, I couldn't think about anything else.  My heart pounded me to sleep last night.  

This morning I woke up extra early, put on a nice little outfit, iced my cupcakes (co-workers love when you bring snacks to presentations) and put them in the car while wearing my slippers.  I ran back inside to change into shoes, grab my purse, my yogurt, and my carnation instant breakfast.  I get in the car, drive half way to work....  In my head I'm running through a list of all the things I needed to do this morning: iced the cupcakes (check), found the Danish flag (check), brought the Danish liqorice (check), brought my usb memory stick with my presentation (check), brought my notebook (check), keys/phone/wallet (check, check, check)...what else?........ change my SHOES!   I am still wearing my slippers!! I swear I have had nightmares of this happening and am momentarily panic-stricken.  Actually I have been panic-stricken all weekend and now I'm horrified!  But I am almost to work.  I make it to the parking lot and start fussing around in the back seat.  LUCKILY I have a bag full of shoes in my trunk!  Phew!  I have been driving around with this bag full of shoes in my trunk since before I left for Denmark...meaning to drop them off at the thrift store.  It was a very bi-polar moment.  I went very quickly from cursing myself for being such an idiot to loving myself for being twice forgetful!
