My week, thus far, (and it’s only Tuesday, mind you!) has been one fail after another! I can’t seem to win or catch a break. And I’m not sure what’s going on.
On Monday, either my laptops power port (where the power cord plugs into) has a short, or something is wrong with the cord (but we can’t see anything wrong with it!). But, it will only recharge with the cord when you hold it and jiggle it and do the Moonwalk. And, well, I’m no Michael Jackson (may he rest in peace), so my laptop isn’t recharging. Every time I get it recharging, I go to type or the air brushes against the cable just right and BAM! it stops charging! It is so frustrating!! I copied everything important off of it and onto my husband’s PC, which has my old monitor from my old PC so it’s kind of like going home (except I’m that kid who ran away and now the cops are bringing me back in the middle of the night and I’m in the back of the squad car trying to pay them off with a pack of gum and the promise of donuts in the morning if they turn the car around – I have nothing to offer, but am desperate to return to my freedom). My mother-in-law has the same laptop, so when she gets in town (my in-laws are truckers) I’ll use her power cable to test the power cable theory. I don’t think this theory holds much water, but it’s worth a shot. You never know. Miracles have happened in the past.
The tonight, I was needing to install Office 2007 on my husband’s computer because all of his software is so old school (talking ’97!!!). I’m used to the newer stuff because I had the free software from school. Oh, the perks. Well, we combed the house. Combed it with a fine tooth comb, and can’t find that CD anywhere! It’s been on my desk for 2 years, now it’s missing??? I can’t believe this! It’s like someone is out to get me or something! I downloaded OpenOffice instead. Screw it.
Then I went to hand my son his water, a rather full glass, and spilled it all over my purse! My hand just lost the grip! I was quick to get everything electronical out of there – my cell, my new FlipHD Mino. And nothing was harmed. No money or documents were soiled, and now the purse just needs to dry out. Hoping it does so over night because I work an early and all day shift tomorrow!
So, as you can see, my week is shaping up to be something out of this world and it’s only beginning!
