Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Everyone has days weeks like this.  Right?  I’m sure of it.  There’s even a book about it

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day
“I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard and by mistake I dropped my sweater in the sink while the water was running and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”
— Alexander and the Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

This is one of my favorite books to read to Sophia, and its true, everyone does have days, and sometimes weeks like this where everything seems a little upside down and backwards.  Eventually things turn around, right?

The BAD ….and the Good…..heck maybe I should just pick up and move to Australia!

The last few weeks have been a bit rough.  This week my big issue is that our internet has been up/down.  The wireless company we used switched our tower and its seems to be a little more complicated than planned.  My video has also been down and since I work, primarily at home, for a company that holds a large number of meetings over video its been a little rough.  Add in a few major deadlines and well my patience  is dropping almost as quickly and often as my internet seems too–no fun!

I’ve had some health issues recently, working on getting over them now but they’ve thrown me for a bit of a loop.  Nothing like a good wake up call to shake you around a bit.   I’m also having a birthday in a couple of months.  A big one.  That’s also making me think more about bucket lists, what I’ve done and what I’ve yet to do.  Interesting, rather interesting indeed!

I’m been working on some recipes, cooking a bunch, trying to get more organized, decorate and generally try to knock away at that list of household projects.  If you don’t start you’ll never finish right?   I’ve been reading a lot and thinking about writing more….I even have some plans.  More on that as it materializes.

There is another saying that is pushing me along –if you don’t like something change it, if you can’t change it change the way you look at it.

Not sure that’s going to work for my connectivity issues but it might help me make progress on some other fronts!

And just because a post is nothing without pictures and because without friends we’d all be lost I give you…..
