Today was a frustrating day.
It was a rough drop-off for my oldest son at school due to a tantrum. From our door to me finally leaving his school was about an hour. We live about one and a half miles away from school.
I uncorked a creative block today at work, but it came at a time that left me precious little time to document it and polish the ideas before tomorrow’s presentations. They will just have to be rough.
My work laptop finally died, with the hard drive thrashing and gnawing like a rat in a trap. I have two important presentations tomorrow, one with a VP, so now I have to use my own gear until the replacement laptop arrives. (Don’t get me started on the options I get to choose from.) I like my personal laptop, but it has the power to generate a stir at work when stirring is not desired.
I bought two of shirts tonight, but it wasn’t until I was walking past the front of the store with a couple of tired kids that I saw the sign advertising three for a reduced price. Thanks, lazy salesclerks!
A project of great endurance almost landed today, but was waved off for another go-around. I’m beginning to wonder if the touch-and-gos will ever be a landing now.
On the bright side, I spent lots of time with my kids today. Four hours with the five year-old and three hours with the two year-old. While they drive me nuts sometimes, they really are a lot of fun, and I was able to get a great picture of the two of them sharing a drink of milk, each with their own straws.
That really made all the other crap I dealt with during the day seem so unimportant, which is was, really.
