Any of you relate? You know, those days when unexpected teeth gnashing circumstances come a-knocking on your Life? Well, I am having one of those days. I knew at 5am this morning, sh*t was about to happen.
Six am another MESS! Seven am NOOOOOO! Eight am GEEZE AGAIN? Nine am the BIG KABOOM! I began to sweat. This is NOT the way I had my day planned. Not in the least. Ego over spirit tugged back and fro. Would I have a tantrum? Or would I say, “Not a problem”.
I stood toe to toe with my husband, explicity saying, you see the MESSES I have on my day and I refuse to get upset. I’m dealing with it. I’m rearranging my day. I told him I have two choices …. act like a two year old and make a fuss, or keep my chin up and just clean up the messes with a smile on my face.
I was doing well. The day was planned. I was looking forward to the arrival of my new laptop today. It came. BIG DRUMROLL PLEASE. Another mess. Yep! My OS is Windows 7 Professional, and all the recovery disks that came included with my laptop are all for Windows 8. *sighs*
To do things in the correct order, it is best to back up everything as is before you put anything on a new computer. I really don’t understand this mentality, because if you have the recovery disks, you don’t have to back anything up. But, this is what IS according to hubs, and I am not about to hassle with him, I who am a babe in the woods when it comes to puters. Or perhaps it is I who misunderstand and we are only waiting for the correct recovery disks to arrive.
So, hubs made phone calls and the correct recovery DVD’s are on their way. Interrpretation? I have to WAIT until they arrive before I start playing with my new toy. *another sigh* Just to insure we do receive the correct disks, I wait for them to arrive. And if any of you don’t understand that, have you taken a good look around at this world’s idea of quality? Better to be safe then to be sorry.
NO fuss. No tantrum. Just simple acceptance that I will just have to wait a few days before I can use my new laptop. No problem. Now, IF I had gotten upset by ALL that has transpired in my day today, I would be exhausted, and miserable as well. I’m not. I have a smile on my face, patiently plowing through each mess on my schedule, and patiently waiting to use my new laptop.
Just goes to show you that even LadyP has “those” days. And as for Sassy (the cat in the image) she just says, “Chill, all will work out!” Hope all of you are having a good day. I’m going back to clean up messes so that I can finally arrive at the place I intended to be today …. planting my Tulip bulbs.
