In the past couple days, my brother was admitted to the hospital (he's ok and home now), W has been a bit more “spirited” than usual, S no longer sleeps through the night, W bit his finger at Starbucks and was so upset that he gagged on the bagel that was in his mouth (sorry fellow Starbucks patrons), and I dropped my iPhone and cracked the screen (only a month away from my contract ending and thus being eligible for a new phone). I thought my phone was fixed only to have it no longer charge - it is currently dead (traded one problem for another). That meant I missed my morning meeting (which, if I’m being honest, wasn’t all that disappointing, but I did feel like a slacker). Work has been crazy. With the added phone repair, I didn’t arrive home until 6:30 yesterday. A very long day.
And this is hardly worth mentioning aside from the sheer irony, but my fantasy football team made the playoffs only to have 3 players sustain injuries. I don’t really care, I just wonder what the odds of a QB, tight end, and running back all going down in the same weekend are.
I know these are all minor issues in the grand scheme of things and I’ll resolve the phone problems even if that means shelling out a couple hundred dollars for a new one (on top of the hundred I already spent), but these haven’t exactly been my favorite days.
The boys visited Santa on Saturday and I’ll share those pictures soon. It was… entertaining.
