Green Room - Week 2 - Day 6

Who isn't getting the love they deserve? https://therealljidol.livejournal.com/1070123.html

In the poll, but also in real life? Who needs more love? :)

***

It's another quick Green Room as I await my ride. I had a computer yesterday, because the team lead went home sick. Otherwise I spent the morning just trying to scan the archive of backlog paperwork into an online archive of backlog paperwork.

I DID get an email letting me know that the IT department was "really sorry" for how long this was taken, but that due to a "minor issue" my new computer "didn't get on the truck" yesterday afternoon. But they promised that it "definitely would be on the truck tomorrow". Of course, that courier doesn't come until late afternoon. So who knows where I will be and what I will be doing for the rest of the day!

It's not like I'm in any hurry - it's only been a week and two days since my work computer died and I started my game of non-musical chairs depending on who happened to be out that day. (RIP Work Computer)

How is YOUR week going?

Week? Pretty good. Morning? UGH.

Husband 1 locked his keys in his car at the grocery store. I had to drive the spare keys out to him, which involved packing up a toddler who did NOT want to put their shoes on or leave the house. I don't know my way to the grocery store (I am disabled and almost never drive) so I had to load Google Maps on my phone. When I turned a corner my phone flew off the mount and got lost under the passenger seat. Then I started getting nonstop calls from my teen at home that made Google Maps error and shut down, so I didn't even have the audio directions and had to kind of guess my way to the store from the last time I was driven there (months ago). I grab my phone from under the seat at a red light, answer, and my kid is freaking out because while I was gone (LESS THAN TEN MINUTES, C'MON GUYS) our dogs tore into a bag of potatoes, a package of garlic, a bag of ginger root, and the garbage can and spread it all over the floor. And I found out I'd made a wrong turn when I hung up and got Maps running again. I finally get to the store, tell Husband 1 he needs to go back in for potatoes, ginger, and garlic, pass off the toddler because they will NOT accept seeing their Papa but not going with him, and drive home, hitting a huge pothole on the way that flared my herniated discs and spinal arthritis and dented my tire rim.

I could definitely use some love today.

Whoa, that is quite the start to the day. It's like, hey can I get a re-do? Your dogs sound like very enthusiastic and active animals! lol!

I hope your day improves, and that the rest of it is uneventful in the best ways possible. :)

What a horror-fest!

And here I was thinking that the teen at home was over-reacting about something, but as it turns out... not. SADLY, not. An entirely separate chaos cyclone was just happening on another front.

I sure hope it's all uphill from here for you today. :O
