Ok, so today was not really a good day. It all started with actuall having to get out of bed. I didn’t want to. It was raining, I was tired, and I just wanted to lay there. We were supposed to get bad weather today (thankfully it just rained), so after a call from my beautiful fiancee, I managed to crawl out and get in the shower. It got me clean, but didn’t really help wake me up much. I guess when you’re tired it makes it that much easier to get irritated about things. That’s how my day started.
I got to work, and had to go test some things in another building, but had to wait to do it. Sitting there waiting, not being able to do the stuff I needed to do really began to irritate me (which was also fueled by the tiredness), and when I realized I didn’t have everything I needed to make the stuff work like it needed to, it made the irritation worse. Other things piled on, and by lunch I felt like screaming to everyone around my my deepest and darkest feelings right that moment. That would not have been to good of a thing to do right then, so I managed to hold it in.
My fiancee and I left early for lunch (she had come to the office because of the looming weather), and we went by the other building so I could do the tests. Everything turned out good, as I thought it would, and we went to get food before she had to go to work. When I got back, I was still tired, but the irritation and aggravation had lessened some. I finished the afternoon at work, and left to go find the missing pieces I needed to make the video stuff I’m going to be doing work right.
I went to at least 5 stores looking for a piece of equipment, and only one had something that I thought “might” work. It was just a little more than I was looking to spend, but a lot less than the other options. So, in the end I decided to go with that one. It took almost 2 hours, but I thought I had something that could do the job. When I got home, I didn’t test it out right away, but ate first, then did a few other things I needed to get done, then finally set down with all the stuff to test it out. Then I realized the laptop I was trying it out on did not have an internal cd drive, and I had left the external one at work. So much for using the CD to install the drivers. I let it search online, even though that hardly ever works, and to my surprise it found the drivers. Then I tested it out, and it actually worked! After all that happened to make today such a bad day, it finally ended in success! Now I can sleep soundly and know that tomorrow will be just great!
