Last week was one of those weeks where life dumped a big old bucket of lemons on my head. Nothing major, just the kind of setbacks that spoil an otherwise well-laid plan. I won't bore you with all of the details. I can tell you that my computer crashed (this on the heels of the Google Drive outage) and I overslept on Monday because Tyler was home from school. This put me behind in a writing project with a fast approaching deadline.
Wednesday was PSAT day and also early dismissal. So once again I was faced with not having a full day of alone time to work. Then Friday my phone stopped making and receiving calls and text messages. After spending two hours chatting online with customer service, I was told I needed a new SIM card. After driving miles out of my way to get the card on Saturday, the phone still didn't work. But wait, that's because the card was not activated (although I asked twice if it was). On Sunday, I had to drive miles out of my again to get another SIM card and to make sure the card was indeed activated. After leaving the store with a functioning phone, not more than 30 minutes later, not only was the phone not working, but the fool had deleted my voice mail service! And oh yeah, I probably need a new phone after all.
So, here I am at the beginning of another week, one that hope goes better than the previous one. My phone is still not working. I expect the new one to arrive later this week
