Easy To Please, But Difficult To Protect

You’d think Sundays would be all lovey dovey good times around here, but this particular one has been on the frustrating side.

  • Woke up sometime before 3am and couldn’t fall back to sleep again for several hours…until it was nearly time to get up for the day, around 7am. So I was wide awake to hear one of the cats puking outside my bedroom door in the wee small hours of the morning.
  • When I did get up for the day I found that the server that hosts this site was down, and the friend whose server it is happens to be out of town. Thankfully another friend has a key to the house and was able to go over and fiddle with the crappy DSL modem.
  • When I got into the car this morning, to meet a friend for brunch, the engine wouldn’t turn over. It took half a dozen attempts to get the car started. That’s a first. And troubling.
  • On the way to brunch I stopped by the bank to deposit a check and received a rather unpleasant financial surprise.
  • I realized today that a movie I borrowed from the library is way overdue. And still, I neglected to return it. Doh.
  • The little man took a nap this afternoon. That’s a bad thing. In general he only naps if he’s getting sick.
  • I napped away much of the day. Maybe I’m getting sick too. Yay.
  • All the pretty snow has melted. Looking out the patio door earlier I saw the little man’s sled looking sad and lonely, sitting on top of the slick green grass.

These are all relatively minor things, but still, in combination they conspired to make me a rather cranky lass today. And tomorrow, it’s back to the grind. Sigh.
Bonus: Bruce Lee is big in Bosnia. Who knew?
