This last week was a doozy. After spending 16 hours on my feet (and hands, and knees, and butt, and back and...) at the EKG Cert Workshop Monday was a rough start.
It went downhill from there... sort of.
On Tuesday, I tripped over my laptop cord and broke the power source connection thingy. This ensued:
On Wednesday, I was #3 in a 5-Car Pileup on 85 South on my way to work. Car is reparable. I am OK.
Smart phone flew up against the dash and the prognosis is NOT so bueno.
Also - in said pile up - a fuse blew, leaving me with no radio and no clock in my car.
I could go on, because the crap stories keep coming (seriously. worst week ever. not joking.)
... but that's not the point of this story.
i've cursed a lot and cried a few times out of sheer frustration. but I've also gotten a sense of quiet.
- No Gmail notice on my phone every 5 minutes... so I am able to work. and stop working.
- No idea what time it is when I'm driving... so no rushing to beat the clock.
- No one telling me horror stories about the economy on NPR ... so I get to hear my own thoughts.
- No unlimited laptop access... so I work on Brian's in small amounts, and shut down when I need to.
Despite all the ups and downs of work and life and technology and family and more ... life seems a little calmer.
My laptop is back up and running.
I'm taking my phone to the Sprint store next week.
And I might just wait a while to get the radio and clock fixed in my car.
