This has been the. longest. week. ever. My extremely beloved boss handed in her resignation. My 10-day cold has turned into a sinus thing. I'm working a conference for two days, and by the time it ends early this afternoon, I would've put in over 47 hours this week. Oh, and after putting items on my work laptop at o'dark-thirty yesterday morning to work on at the conference, my hard drive exploded while I was there-- so I now can neither work on anything, nor re-access it from our work server (or turn in my time card, for that matter). It also meant traveling ten miles past my house after the conference (and back) last night to drop it off in the office, in hopes our IT guy can get to it today and I can get back on track on Monday. All of this was on top of my regular busy workload.
The Human Male is also having a rough week. The worst thing: he got a ticket for "fare evasion" last night and has to go to court because the card scanner on the Metro last night didn't pick up his card as he walked through. To which I'd like to say to Metro, I'd like to give you tickets for broken, unsafe, exploding, and always late trains and stations. And while we're at it, your stupid, slow, iffy card scanners. You should be paying your riders for putting up with your garbage.
We broke out the special bottle of Meritage last night, figuring that we'd earned it.
Ignoring all Daily Grind activities, just by looking at the weather reports all over the country, I get the impression that The Human Male and I are not alone in Craptacular 2009 this week. While our weather's rainy and 30-40 degrees below normal, it's not snowing here.
I've decided that we all need a Moment of Zen today. Here's the one I'm offering you: puggle snuggling a blankie in a papasan.
Okay, now it's your turn. What's your Moment of Zen offering this week? What's making you smile, or put things into perspective? Please share-- write or link to it below.
