Ever have one of those days?
Ever have a multitude of “those” days?
OMG, why did I quit smoking???????!!!! Are better boobs worth it? OMG….What a day.
I don’t even know where to start. It was all equally bad. All of it.
We won’t even go into the meeting I had to set up at the day job that had already been set up, only nobody KNEW it had been set up and I only spent TWO FREAKING HOURS trying to set up said meeting in a conference room that was already booked (with said FREAKING meeting). I think I pissed off more people in two hours than I have in the almost eleven years I’ve worked there.
Then..my ex-(work)husband came in to my office today…well, OUR office, as he didn’t actually step into MY office. But the kids noticed: “Mom (ok, no, they didn’t really call me mom but I added that for fun and effect. It was a bad day; cut me some damned slack, already, ok?), why isn’t Dad talking to you any more? It’s not fun in here like it used to be.”
“I know, kids. Dad left me. Apparently I pissed off his higher power, and sometimes these things just don’t work out. But we love you just the same as we ever did, even if we had a falling out or whatever the hell it was.”
You know it is bad when your employees want to know why, when your former best friend, aka work husband, aka the person you would have done anything for between the hours of 8 and 4, and maybe then some (because you hosted a fundraiser when he was sick and all that) isn’t event making a point to speak to you anymore, but more like making a point to totally ignore you. I told the
kids errr…girls, that he left me, and it wasn’t something I wanted. It just is what it is.
So I finally escape from the day job and come home. Ahhhh, blessed home! My MK STAR consultant prize is in a box waiting for me, almost as eagerly as I was waiting for it. 🙂 I am excited, because I have ONLY been drooling over this bag for just over THREE months, which is why I busted tail to make my STAR status, again, this quarter. Is this bag not AMAZING? I told J we could actually SLEEP in it, if we wanted to. 🙂 I’m just sayin’. This bag ROCKS more than most of my bags, except maybe for my Sharif bags, which I love..but this one comes mighty close. Just saying….
Alright…So I get my bag unpacked and drool for the appropriate amount of time, and then I go and look at my email and realize I have a domain that is about to expire, only it expired a month ago, and our government has imposed a tax on late renewal of domains.
Well, yes, really, so I hope some truly needy family is rewarded from this ungodly fine that is equivalent to 8 years of domain renewal. God KNOWS I’m sorry my damned credit card expired. Sue me. Oh, wait. You don’t have to. You fined my poor, tired ass. You know…the one that works THREE jobs so that I don’t have to depend on the government to look out for my family? Yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. I bust ass to stay off the system, and I get fee’d because my debit card expired. SO damned sorry I didn’t use a credit card that I couldn’t afford to make the payments on. That probably would have been cheaper in the long run, but whatEVER.
Thank goodness Go Daddy is my web host. My support guy, Jeremy, rocked the house and I actually told Go Daddy’s support team that, via the post-renewal survey.
That said, I also made MusingsFromAWorkaholic a dot com entity for the next year. Apparently, I am waiting for the DNS to catch up with my new domain name. So follow me here, follow me there. JUST FOLLOW ME.
Love you guys. xoxo
Till Next Time…
