|In which nothing of great import happens

It's a DITL day! Ever wonder about the exciting life of an IT manager? First things first. I so need a new toothbrush.
Give us this day our daily meds
I never get tired of having running water
Turn off the alarm
How I love thee, L'Occitane
Breakfast of Champions
My morning interwebs fix
Put my face on
In honor of the first day of Autumn and the fact it's only going to be in the 80's, I pick out something Fallish
Wake The Boy. Two nights in a row without throwing up! Yay!
It's pouring rain, so Husband walks us out to the car with an umbrella. We're spoiled like that.
Middle Daughter takes pics on the way to school. I so need a new car.
The traffic is terrible.
The rain has let up, so Middle Daughter decides to get out and walk the rest of the way.
After nearly an hour to travel nine miles, I get to work and check my calendar.
It's a relatively light day - I'm only double booked twice, and my first meeting isn't until 10:00.
Which means I have time to get coffee. Is it sad I don't even have to say what I want before they make it?
Flummoxed by the free time, I check my to-do list
I have time to eat a cookie
And take a required online course
Meeting number 1. Finalizing the list of interview questions. I get to hire two developers!
Take the elevator back to my floor to get my glasses
My next meeting is in another building. It's still raining, so I take the tunnel. It's empty this time of morning.
Meeting number 2. Training class for approving requisitions and invoices.
Still raining, so I take the tunnel back. It's lunchtime, so there are more people. People who walk slowly. This annoys me.
Above ground, this is a two-block straight shot. In the tunnel, it's a 10-minute walk.
Time for lunch! I have 20 minutes to eat before my next meeting.
Because I eat fast, I have time for dessert. The label says low fat, so I pretend it's healthy despite the 35 grams of sugar.
Back on the elevator
Meeting number 3. Design meeting for new functionality. I bring cookies.
Meeting number 4. Team meeting.
Unplanned meeting with a developer to discuss new surprise requirements
New floor for meeting number 5. I didn't bother taking a pic of the elevator again. Brainstorming session for proposed new process.
Another unplanned post-meeting meeting. Discuss potential pilot program for new product. This is a different Diet Coke.
Back at my desk. All the meetings made quite a dent in the cookies.
Knock some some more stuff off the list
Time to go
Last elevator ride of the day. Not counting the one in the parking garage.
The rain has stopped, but it's still cloudy and icky
Pizza night. When I get home, the kids are already eating. The house is a mess.
I should clean it, but instead I read a magazine about people with clean houses.
Some snuggle time with Husband while the kids get ready for bed
I put away some laundry that has been hanging in the bathroom since Sunday
When I go to tuck in The Boy, I notice that his tooth is very very loose
Convincing him to let us pull it results in an hour of very intense drama.
After all the drama, it fell out as soon as Husband touched it. I am worn out from the hysteria and spend the rest of the evening watching Supernatural and posting these pics.
