Regular readers know that I am almost always tired on Tuesday, hence the Tired Tuesday post. Today was even worse, because being the first day back at work after a four day break, it was also my Monday. I feel guilty complaining about it. I am sure many will judge me: you had four days off, you bum! What have you got to be tired about? Well, I am definitely too tired to have THAT argument in my head again.
My day was brightened somewhat this morning when I realized it was, in fact, Tuesday, meaning I only have a four day week. I enjoyed my four day week last week. Perhaps I could do the same this week. One thing I was resolved on: I was going to handwrite a blog post during breaks so that I could go to the library after work and make my blog post on a real computer, not my Tablet. Additionally, I could easily check all my emails (I have a few different accounts), at least one of which I had to answer. Oh, and Facebook message a cast member of Secrets at Suiter House. Just to show you what a full plate I had.
Naturally, things did not go as I planned. They never do; I’m not even sure why I bother to make plans, but never mind that now. First, I was too tired to write anything. Then I got a message from my husband, Steven, that the laptop was ready for pick up TODAY, not Friday as scheduled. It obviously behooved me to call and change my pick-up appointment to today, and to drive to New Hartford (NY, not CT), and get the laptop. Then I could skip the library. Although, now that I think about it: the library is closer, and I could have gotten out more books. I like books.
Of course it took longer than expected to accomplish this, and traffic is often a problem in that area. However, I mustered what patience I could, and now I am sitting on my couch, typing my blog post into the laptop. I checked my email, answered what I needed to, sent the message I wanted to, and even looked at Facebook for a bit (don’t judge me).
I’m thinking this is a foolish post, even for a Tired Tuesday. There are a lot more interesting things I could write about than my stupid computer problems. If only I wasn’t so tired! Let that be a lesson to me — oh wait, this is a lesson I have told myself many times and I haven’t learned it yet: Have blog posts written in advance, so in case of just such an emergency, I will have only to hit Publish. Waaaait a minute! That sounds suspiciously like Plan Ahead. What did I say earlier about making plans?
