Aaaaaagh!

Okay, I was supposed to come home and do two hours of writing.  But when I got home, I had to walk the baby. 
Not so bad. 
But then when I got back, I realized that the garbage had to be taken out. 
Fine, I did that real quick like.
Then I go into the office to write-
Oh, wait, I needed to change the picture size on my camera before I forget, because it occurred to me earlier in the day and I have been trying to remember to do it.  Anyway-
I take the camera out, I change the size of the images, and to test it I snap a shot . . .
AND IT DOESN'T WORK!
The freakin thing was doing it again!
OMG! OMG! OMG!
So, after a few "Oh, no, no, no, no!" I went through the same motions I did the other day when I had to fix the camera.
But nothing worked.
Then I opened the program and did a firmware upgrade and . . .
IT WORKED AGAIN!

An hour I spent on that shit. 

Then it was time to try and write. 
I read through a few pages . . . my mind started drifting, every once in a while, to the fear of the camera fucking up while we're on vacation . . . then back to the sentences in front of me . . . and I don't remember what I just read.
Then from the other room, I hear my phone go off.  I have an alarm set every day as a reminder to write in my blog.  I don't post every day, but on the days when I need to, it's helpful to be reminded.
And since I hadn't posted in a couple of  days, that ended up being the new thing rolling around in my head as I tried to work.

So I gave up.

I came here, wrote in my blog, did part of what I was supposed to do.  I've told you my story and now I'm going to have some wine!
