Things that have gone wrong today

Tags: ,
  1. Some idiot honking a car horn repeatedly in the parking lot woke me up sooner than I wanted to be. Because of that, I rolled over and went back to sleep and then slept too long and didn't get up until 10:30.
  2. I turned on my computer and Outlook wouldn't start. Outlook wouldn't start a few days ago but uninstalling and reinstalling Office got Outlook working and sort of broke Word (it works but it thinks it is reinstalling every time I open it so it takes forever). Since Outlook has again stopped working, I'm worse off than I would have been if I hadn't ever tried to fix it. Unfortunately I suspect the solution to all this will be to stop living in the Dark Ages and upgrade from Office 2000.
  3. I went downstairs to make breakfast, which first required washing some dishes. The sink has been slow to drain lately but this morning it wouldn't drain at all. I looked under the sink and discovered it has in fact been slowly leaking and there was a huge mess of water and gunk in the cupboard. So I called the apartment complex, they said they'd put in a work order, and I set about cleaning up the mess under the sink.
  4. Somewhere between calling the apartment complex and cleaning up the mess under the sink, I set down my cell phone and now I can't find it.

Despite over sleeping, I'm tired, I'm frustrated, and I have yet to have breakfast or get any work done today. I need to go to the library, but I can't because I don't know if the maintenance people are going to come by today. I could go if I had my cell phone to take with me because I told them to call that number and I could give them permission to enter the apartment even if I'm not here. But I can't find my cell phone!

EDIT: I was sure I had put the cellphone in the pocket of my PJ pants. Then I remembered that I had been wearing my bath robe earlier so I checked its pockets. Hello, phone! Nice to see you!

Ugh, I had one of those under-sink leak problems at my college apartment. The disposal had emptied straight into the cupboard and it was so disgusting. There was mildew, and the apartment people never would come and replace the board. Bleurgh. Hope your landlords are better about repairs, and that the rest of your day looks up!

They came and fixed the sink. I haven't looked under it to see how much damage was done by the water, but I don't think it should be too bad.

Despite everything else, I'm glad you found your phone!

It sounds like you're having one of those days where it seems like a much better idea to just go back to bed and haul the covers over your head and/or devour copious amounts of junk food. I hope it improves!

The day did improve. Then Friday was, overall, a rather nice with the one "minor" blip of my dad going to the ER and potentially needing surgery soon. He's fine for now and not overly worried, though, so I'm trying not to let it stress me.
