I could use a crappy Pinterest inspirational saying right about now.

Today has seriously been one of the worst days I’ve had in forever.

I didn’t accomplish even half of what I needed to get done because my trusty old laptop has finally had enough.

R.I.P. old Dell.

I spent the better part of my day trying to revive him, but it’s finally time that we parted ways.

It also meant that I got nothing done, and I’m having a mild panic attack just thinking about it. I’m also chastising myself for deciding to participate in this monthly blogging challenge because OF COURSE my laptop dies just when the challenge starts!

These are the types of challenges that make me think, “okay, so should I just quit? Is this a very clear sign that I should quit?” Or “is this one of those things life hands you that furthers your resolve and makes you push that much harder”?

It doesn’t matter. I’m just stubborn, so I’m not quitting. And I’m really horrible at reading or seeing “signs” anyway. I’m writing this blog on my husbands laptop, and tomorrow morning I’ll be out early shopping for a new one. I’m super techy so it should be easy breezy. And by super techy I mean that I can probably still program a digital alarm clock if I have to.

Anyway, this is one of those days where I could probably use one of those crappy inspirational sayings you see on Pinterest all the time, at the bottom of an image of someone walking along the beach at sunset, deeply engaged in their own thoughts. Not that I think it’ll work, but Pinterest also has a lot of great recipes for things that need chocolate. Let’s be honest about what I really need right now.

I hope you’re all having a much better day than I have. And while I’m on the topic, please reach out to me if you’ve also had a less than stellar day, and I’ll eat some chocolate for you too. And maybe have some wine. And maybe have some wine for myself as well. But more will be for you.

  1. I had a crappy day too! I got some bad feedback on my work, what better to inspire a writer, right? I’ve contended that it wasn’t my fault, or an accurate reflection of my work – usually they’re really happy with what I write, but.. ugh. Forget that. Here’s a Pin for ya: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/130393351689044949/ And not of some random lady on a beach. It’s from Georgia O’Keefe, the lady that paints vagina flowers. Now, there’s someone who knows things about life.

    I admire your dedication to the challenge. I’m sure you’ll catch up on your snazzy new laptop tomorrow.

  2. Some days just make others look more spectacular!! Hang in there. I’m right there with you when technical difficulties creep up – it can really bring me down. My thought everything gets better with sleep.
