You know when you’re having one of those days? The kind where everything is going along wonderfully, and then something happens and you’re thrown a bit off balance…..everything is still going okay and you keep plugging along…..and then all of a sudden your whole world (at work anyway) goes to the hot place in a coach bag? It was one of those days.
I think I may have mentioned at some point, that most of what I do involves a computer; both a Windows based charting program, and a DOS based program that the Windows based program talks to……or is suppose to anyway. This morning, and then on and off for most of the day, neither program was functioning. This meant that I was basically dead in the water (so to speak). Add to this, the provider I’m assigned to had an emergency at home and we had to cancel the afternoon, and then the final straw came when I had no fewer than 5 people crowded in and around my tiny office, wanting something. For the first time in I don’t know how long I left almost on time…….my brain was about to explode.
I did what any of you would do…..I came home, poured myself a generous adult beverage (whiskey sour, for anyone interested), put on some fun music and set the twist in some fresh spun skeins of mystery wool. The plan, is to make these skeins part of my exchange gift for camp in a few days.
And……I’m feeling better. It’s amazing what a little yarn play can do for one’s attitude. Tomorrow, of course, will bring trouble of it’s own, but for now, I can enjoy looking at the yarn suspended from my kitchen cabinet and look forward to camp in a few days.
How do you deal with a bad day???
