I need a hug or two, or three...[[[hug]]].
Why? I'll tell you why. It started yesterday, when I began experiencing technical difficulties with my computer/network/Internet connection. Missed a deadline. And the computer didn't seem to care. No matter how much troubleshooting I did with him. Frustrated, I went to sleep. It was already late for me, anyway.
Then, this morning, I was on the phone for THREE HOURS with the computer technicians who could only TEMPORARILY fix my computer. And you know how you have to answer questions, do all those things, check this, check that, disconnect this, try this, try that, and converse back and forth to the guy you wind up interrupting most of the time because you need to clarify a command or question? Well, I have a cold--a hacking, nagging cough kind of cold--and I kept hacking over the phone, not hearing him over that, and then finally we reached a conclusion. The temporary fix. It's probably my computer, not the connection. So I'll have to go through this again with someone else. But what else can you do when your computer goes on the fritz?!
Ya gotta do it. Just not now.
I need to give my voice a rest. And I have a meeting in a half hour.
Needless to say, I am NOT having a good day, and I just want to go sit in a dark room and cry. But I can't. I'm heading out to my meeting, and then getting right back to work. The deadline is still there, and now it's nagging me.
You know what else? Even exercise didn't help much, though it probably helped me suffer through the phone consultation with the computer guy who could not really fix my computer. At least he kept apologizing and was nice. Still, that whole situation was, well, you know, aggravating.
And did I tell you my eye is watering. Just my right eye. Don't know why. Allergies, maybe? Not sure. But it's probably not good, and I'm going to have to do my best to ignore it for now.
Yes, even the lady who usually motivates and inspires you has a bad day every now and then. And, boy, did it feel good to get that off my chest!
Anyone else need to rant? Post your lengthy rants here, so we can all commiserate together.
Hugs to you!
