What a beating of a day.
My day: (took the day off work to work on my mega-paper)
wake up 7:30
Gage, up, dressed, breakfast.
8:45 Out the door to take Gage to Memaw's
9:30-10:30: exchange Gage's shoes @ Target b/c Hubby bought a pair (FIVE SIZES) too small. (WTF was he thinking!?)
11:00 home, gather paper writing junk. Open laptop.
WHAT THE F*CK? The screen went black.
Every time I turned it on, it turned off.
Run up stairs----use that computer to find a place to buy a new battery for the laptop. Why??? Because the draft of the paper is ON the laptop. NO, I didn't save it to the little memory stick thing because when I was going to---the laptop kept turning off!
Closest place that has the battery: Plano's Batteries Plus.
fine. Go there.
$100+ later---I've got a new battery.
Problem: that's only 1/2 the problem. Screen won't light up.
Go to Computer Junction in Richardson.
fine. $75 to plug in a cable that came loose?
fine. pay it. Go home.
And now, my day off has been WASTED with running around, and I've only added 2 pages in length to what I'd hope to finish today.
I want to take a nap.
that's my whine for today.
thanks for reading.
I'm still typing, and that means that I am procrastinating.
Okay---fine! I'll log off! I'm leaving now. Back to work on my paper.
