A couple of my friends have shared a meme last week. With Mercury out of retrograde, now everything weird and bad is our own fault. I found this funny and sent the meme to a co-worker, because I had mentioned Mercury in retrograde, and all of the sudden we’re both seeing posts about this topic over the past couple of weeks.
That particular morning, I was feeling good about my day. I was going to make it a good day. Then I realized I was missing my work phone. In trying to avoid working over the weekend, I removed my work iPhone from my purse and set it on a table at home. And I had about 2 dozen images I kind of needed on there….but that’s fine. I just reshot the images I needed. About an extra 45 minutes spent on that particular task.
Sitting at my desk, I felt like I was getting things done, only to realize I hadn’t even opened Outlook. I was 90 minutes into my day and I hadn’t even opened my email.
Fast forward to Thursday and it was the beginning of a couple of pretty good days. We met a friend and his family Thursday night for dinner downtown, and our kids played in Splasheville. And that just led into a few really fun visits with them over three days (we weren’t expecting that all, and it was such a fun time.)
So today. Today I was going to have a good day. I was going to own Monday. Only an hour into my day, the website was no longer accessible through our network. It took more than an hour to get things working again – and then it took until after 4:30 to fully track down the issue. I felt like I was chasing a problem and we shouldn’t have been chasing these issues.
Today was also the first day of school. My son started first grade, and I have high hopes for him having a great school year. I felt like all went well, except for his after school program. I don’t know what we’re going to do about this program. It’s one that we’ve liked, but things have changed/are changing and it has not been easy for us.
I should also mention that over the weekend I managed to completely wipe out at the end of an 11-mile run, and my arm is not in the greatest condition. (I did get checked out, but I’m working/functioning through constant throbbing.)
Adding this sunrise photo because this was Saturday morning. Before my run fell apart at the very end, and I spent hours in Urgent Care.
I realized this morning that there was a full moon over the weekend. So I may not be able to blame Mercury in retrograde, but for now I’m choosing to blame the full moon for the craziness that is this week.
How is your month going? Anyone with me on the Monday feels?
