TechyDad and the No Good, Horrible, Rotten Day
Today was not my best day. In fact, it was filled with FAIL after FAIL. It started off promising enough. I got NHL ready for school and myself ready for a day of training. I dropped NHL off and began into work. Halfway to work, I snapped out of “auto-pilot” mode realizing that I wasn’t going to my office today. I was going to training! And training was in the exact opposite direction. Note: Face-palming while driving is *not* recommended.
After I got to training, things looked up. I arrived on time and the training session was going well. Then we broke for lunch and I went with my boss to a local sub place. Exiting his car, I happened to look down at my two brown shoes. My two MISMATCHED brown shoes. I was mortified but resolved not to mention a word lest I suffer more embarrassment. Instead, I went out of my way to (as subtly as possible) make sure both shoes weren’t in his field of vision at the same time.
At one point during the day, I had needed a password for a site. Now, I usually carry around a USB flash drive with passwords and some other documents. So I plugged that in and got my password. After I arrived home, I realized that I couldn’t remember putting the flash drive away. Yes, I had forgotten the drive at the training center. I called and they were closed for the day. I was able to reach my account representative who said he’d put it aside for me.
So, after all of that stress, I’m looking at the big To-Do list of things I should get done tonight and thinking “I *really* want to just veg out with some Kirby’s Epic Yarn until it’s time for bed.” I think I’ll justify it by saying that any development work or housework I do tonight is potentially cursed. Who knows? I might delete the database instead of copying it or drop the dishes while trying to load the dishwasher.
Here’s hoping tomorrow is better.
