And the crap just keeps happening. It is relentless.
Apparently, I’m going through one of those prolonged phases of my life where things just Won’t Go Right.
Let’s call it the “Charlie Brown Phase.”
CBP happens to us all, I’m sure. When your time comes, I am prepared to pour out the empathy like rivers of water on your poor, parched soul. For, I understand.
The latest of my recent mini-tragedies is that my computer, due to a faulty power cord, is unusable. This happened last week. After a frantic web search (on rapidly depleting reserve battery power–my laptop needs a new battery as well, bless its little heart. . . ), I ordered a new power cord with expedited shipping. It’s supposed to be here tomorrow.
Will it be here tomorrow?
I’ve been fanatically checking the tracking information every day since I ordered and to my very great chagrin and irritation, the package, which had been crawling around California, was delivered yesterday. . . back to the seller.
My immediate reaction was to send a terse “Where the crap is my stuff, you jerks???” email. (Okay. I didn’t call them jerks out loud (in print?)–only in my soul. After all, it might not be their fault.) So far, I haven’t heard back.
I find I am fairly bereft without my computer. Web surfing and blog reading and posting on my phone is all very well (it’s not, really), but it’s not so great on my eyes. It’s possible that I need glasses. But this also means no Netflix or YouTube (I’ve been watching a series of LPs on YouTube recently) or emergency tutorials or inspiration-gathering. What’s a girl to do??
So, I’m tossing up this quick post from my computer at work just to let you know that until this power cord issue is resolved, it will probably continue to be quietish here on the blogfront. If you’re just dying to know what I’m up to, you can follow me on Instagram (@jennylcarver) where I’m trying to be better about posting. (By the way, kudos to WordPress for finally letting us have an Instagram widget!)
I’ll catch you guys on the flip side of the Power Cord Disaster of 2013. Until then, Godspeed.
