2:40 p.m.: I know I have to leave in five literal actual minutes to pick up my kid from school, but I really just want to finish this spreadsheet I am working on and if I don’t get these last few cells filled in, I think I might scream. I get it done and set my status to “Do Not Disturb” for half an hour, which is wildly optimistic, but I’m nothing if not an optimist.
