I don’t normally write about crappy days, but hey – today is extra crappy and it’s too much to rant about in a tweet or facebook post, so here i am. Feel free to ignore or skip this one if you don’t care. I’ll understand. Mostly i just want to vent.
I am sick. Woke up groggy and flu-like. Probably infected by the kids who have been sick recently. Didn’t get to sleep in though because aforementioned kids wanted to snuggle. Cute normally. Today just meant i lost some extra sleep. Oh, and then they hoped in the tub before i could get in a shower, so i was stuck in bed feeling all icky and not able to take a hot shower. When they did get out, i was in a rush so i could get to work. No relaxation this morning. oh well.
Let’s grab breakfast on the way in to work to try and speed things up. But wait – i can’t go through the drive through because my freaking window is frozen shut! UGH. And what’s this – the restaurant is under construction so the only way to order is via the drive-through. lame. skip breakfast. who needs it anyway? maybe i can pick something up by work. my window should be thawed by then.
But first, let’s spend 1 hour and 15 minutes at a standstill on the interstate because of multiple accidents because stupid Utah drivers forget that snow = slippery. Bad mood increasing. And i couldn’t even play on my phone because stupid me forgot to charge it last night, so it won’t turn on until i get to work. At least i got some breakfast, although i almost got side-swiped at the intersection because some lame truck driver was on his phone and didn’t realize the double-turn lane. @)#(UR$.
Why should the fun stop there though? Go in to work, turn on my computer and …and hour later, it’s still not on. machine completely hosed. i’d go home, but there’s a bunch of men in my basement with jackhammers cracking my foundation and laying pipe all day.
And hey – one final straw. Someone that i hired to do some time-critical contracting work has completely flaked out. Not a peep from him in over 2 months. Everyone’s pissed at me and he wont’ return my calls. I’m f’d and we’re two months behind schedule on this project now. Perfect way to top off the morning.
I’m off to lunch. A LONG lunch somewhere. Too bad i didn’t bring a book.
