computer drama...let's erase today

Do you ever have a day you just wanna erase?  Wish you could look back and have different results, or gone back to bed and started over? or simply never had at all?  yah, well, I am with you!  Today, I had one of those days...

I had set out to achieve a certain amount of organization and cleanup in my office.  I got one sack done...1 and I have probably 10!  Seriously, I am not exagerating.  That is not near enough accomplished with the impending garage sale in 3 days!  I also had planned to get one of my employee's computers fixed...after 6 hours, it still isn't!  I thought I knew enough about computers to fix it...but evidently I don't.  It took hours to even get Microsoft Windows XP reloaded...and only thanks to a very dear friend, did I even achieve that (because after entering the dumb product code, it kept telling me that it was invalid)!  I downloaded all 49files off of www.dell.com to my jump drive and then installed them on the this problem child laptop.  Some worked.  Some didn't.  I feel stupid.  I don't know why this is so complicated for me today...don't know what I am doing wrong and I must I tell you that I was and am beyond frustrated. Something like this should not be pushing me over the edge, but it is. I am calling it a day (after I finish this blog post to make me feel better) because I feel my day is and was wasted.  Must I tell you that I just keep crying and between all this computer mess???  Well, I am telling you...and between two other things that came up, (my brother being upset with me and turning down an invitation to join a friend for dinner), I am done in.  Maybe I should have seriously thought abut just taking this in to a repair shop...it would have for sure been less stress. ;)  I can't remember when I last even cried! I am not in the mood for my two networking events tomorrow, a 1on1 meeting, or the mid-week christian worship activities, I wish I could cancel and stay home, but I can't. I won't let myself quit or think of another wasted day.  It has to be more productive than today was!!!  and I am sure after a hot shower, some sleeping aid and a big glass of water, and I am sleeping in my cozy bed, I won't be thinking of my IT service issues...just hope that when the alarm goes off at 5.30am tomorrow I hope I don't remember today.
