Last “Normal” Day

Writing this almost a week later, it’s hard to recall anything concrete about Wednesday, November 2. I can say for certain that it was my last “normal” workday of the week. And by “normal” all I mean is that I went in at the normal time and left at the normal time. Really, to be honest, nothing about the week leading up to my company’s conference was normal at all. The stress level was off the charts for the entire week and every day it seemed as if there were ten new tasks added to my to-do list for every one task I was able to cross off.
