First World Problems



I almost tripped this morning heading out to the garage (In. The. Dark. Sigh). Our landlord had our house reroofed this weekend & the workers left behind some materials when they were done. We assume that someone will come & get them sometime, but in the meantime the sheets of plywood are kind of stealthy. #ihavearoof

The microwave in the office next door died last week so now to nuke my food I have to go up to the 2nd floor & walk down a long hallway and security-card-swipe my way through to the 2nd floor break room, wait in line to use the microwave, and then carry the hot food back to my desk! Not only that, my coworkers were kind of laughing at my distress (which is no more than I should expect given my Drama Queen Status). #ihavefoodtoeat

Did I mention that it was dark when I left the house this morning at 7:15? And heaven help me when the time changes – it’ll still be dark when I get to work. #ihaveagreatjob

This week is going to be really busy. Tonight I’m voting, tomorrow is my regular dinner out with my friend Joanne, Wednesday is choir practice, Thursday I have a pre-convention meeting (I’m a delegate from our church to our diocesan annual meeting), and Saturday is this benefit*. I really really don’t like it if there is more than one thing per week on my calendar. #ihavetimeandtalenttogive

In short, I do believe I’ll just shut up now!



*I had someone ask about making a donation for Jennie. If you are so inclined, please make any checks payable to Christ Episcopal Church Xenia, put "Jennie Hudson Fund" on the memo line & mail them to 65 East Church Street, Xenia, OH 45385, and Thank You VERY Much!

  1. Funny, it wasn't until today that I noticed how dark it was outside as I was getting dressed. Le sigh.

  2. Oh Dana how I hate the dark mornings...and the even darker early evenings...I bung on all the light that I can to stop my "raging against the dying of the light""...to be a bit poetic!!

  5. I love your attitude. Seeing the good in spite of the annoyances. Tape your choir singing and share it with us!

  6. I'm not likin' the drive to work in the dark, either. But then again, I've been leaving the house around 6:15!

  7. Very important to put things in perspective once in a while. (Still, the microwave one sounds pretty brutal.)

  9. Dang, you can't buy a break. Maybe you need to buy one of those little forehead-mounted headlights with a headband so you can navigate when it's still dark out. Just a thought. :)

  10. Just be glad the plywood isn't stacked in the 2nd floor hallway when you walk with your hot food back to your desk...!

    I know, I hate the early morning dark too. Sigh.

  11. I was like that last year - it got to the point where i was going out to do something almost every night of the week. It got a bit much to be honest and I'm glad i cut back

  12. I smiled when I read the header. Indeed, we should all be so unfortunate. :c)

  13. I needed this post. You are right. Life can be filled with craziness, but it's so important to not let the little things get blown out of proportion.

  14. I needed to see that other people have crazy lives like mine. Sometimes I think I am alone there. I leave my house at 5;45 to drive my hour to work....there is no daylight until I am about 5 minute from the school....and by no daylight..I mean that gray color you get before the sun begins to rise. That is the one thing I dislike about this time of year. Sigh!

  15. Love your hashtag points. They are humbling. I hope the annoying things get fixed, but we're unfortunately tethered to that time thing that steals the light from our days.
