ARRRGGGG. What a frustrating day yesterday! It seemed like everything I touched went to hell in a hand basket. I must not have been the only one having a bad day either… everybody around me was annoyed and grumpy. It was very irritating. The idiots were out in force on the roads too. All the way into work there was some asshole that would pull in front of me and slow down. Fortunately, I was able to get around them, and made excellent time and got to work early.
Work was especially frustrating. I work with a number of different businesses to solve their computer problems, and there was one in particular that I just couldn’t seem to help. Nothing I tried to do fixed his problem. I spent pretty much the whole day on this guy. Now I’m behind on all the other customers I’m supposed to be helping. Today is not going to be a good day… I still haven’t solved the one problem, and I’m going to have to double up and catch up on everybody else. I should probably ask for help on the hard one, but I hate to admit that I have failed to get this resolved. He may just have to move to the bottom of the list. If I can knock out some of my backlog maybe the day will be better than yesterday.
I was so busy yesterday I barely had time to keep up with my personal email. I haven’t been out in two nights, and I want to make sure I don’t miss any email invitations to get together. Actually, I was supposed to go out last night, but it was cold and rainy, and she didn’t want to come out. So she cancelled at the last minute. Honestly, that was okay though, because I really didn’t want to go out in the nasty weather either. It would have been nice if she could have come to my house though… it was a good night to cuddle up and watch a movie together. I guess I really don’t know her well enough to ask though; we’ve only been out twice before. I’m going to have to find something to do tonight. There are a couple of women I’ve been chatting with that I’d like to meet, but I have ‘real’ dates Friday and Saturday, and don’t want to blow them off just for a first meeting. I’m really not a serial dater; I’m just keeping my options open until I can find the right one that I can settle down in a comfortable relationship.
In spite of the fact that I didn’t go out last night, it turned out to be a reasonably pleasant evening. I opened a bottle of wine and watched a movie. I’ve kind of been getting into the foreign films lately, and there was a good French flick about an upper classed lady who prostitutes herself during the day while her husband is at work. And I finished the bottle of wine, so I slept really well. I was so ready to hit the bed after the movie I almost forgot to take my meds. But I remembered right after I lay down, so I got back up and took them. It was kind of difficult getting up this morning, especially since I wanted to get up early. But once I had a shower and got moving it was fine. Since I slept so hard last night maybe I won’t get sleepy this afternoon like I usually do.
At least my house is clean again. I got up early this morning to take care of the dishes in the sink and get the living room picked up. I’ve really got to get into my spare bedroom and do something about all those boxes! I have all these books with nowhere to put them, and they’re just piled up in the back of the room. My desk is in the same room, and it’s getting really hard to ignore the mess when I get on the computer.
I’m annoying myself too. The song playing in my head is exceptionally loud today. Usually it’s just quietly playing in the background, but today I’m actually humming it out loud. Rick James’ “Super Freak” for crying out loud. I keep telling myself to STOP IT every time I catch myself being loud enough for others to hear. It’s embarrassing.
Damn! My work phone just rang. It’s only 7:30, who the hell is calling me? It’s probably that jerk I was dealing with all day yesterday. The man just can’t be satisfied. If he’d just leave me alone to do my job, I might be able to figure out a way to help. I guess that’s a sign that I ought to wrap this up and get busy. I haven’t sent out my ‘good morning’ emails to my friends yet, and it’s time for a coffee refill. I need to get all of that out of the way so I can start working on my job. That’s what they pay me for, after all.
Maybe today will be better.
