Have you ever had one of those days?


It started innocently enough. I got up, drank my coffee, watched "Sunday Morning". Little did I know what would happen after that. It is one of those days.

If you know me at all, you know that I have trouble with time and dates. On my last trip to Europe, a complicated deal, I flew into Geneva, took a train to Lichtenstein, back to Lichtenstein, flew to Rome, back to Geneva and then home. Everything was going along quite nicely until I realized in Lichtenstein, I'd booked my return from Rome to Geneva in November 2011, which meant I could stay in Rome an extra 6 months. I still have no idea how I did that, but I did it so I kissed an extra 400.00 good bye so I could get home on time. Once, I went to Sweden a day early. That's another story. Well, better than a day late. I now use a travel agent for complicated trips - I have learned that lesson.

So, I shouldn't have been surprised by the fact that I'd double booked myself for an upcoming trip. I do have a calendar but, of course, hadn't made the proper entry so it looked like I was totally clear. I need a secretary, a mother, something! Now, I have to take care of that and make amends.

After that shock, I decided to cruise on our community area. You know, some of our members had customized their pages and I thought I'd do the same. Little did I know that I, as an administrator, had the power to change the whole community, not just my page, but the whole community. So, with one "save" the old page was gone and a new one in its place. Vernon yelled a little, I apologized a lot and I learned another lesson. Don't touch it if you don't understand it. Now, I actually prefer the new look but I didn't mean to do it.

After I recovered a bit from that excitement, I thought "I'll read my email" - that seemed safe. One of my emails was from the wonderful Anita. It seems that somehow I own one of another CraftEdu's instructor's class. And, I might have been paid for its sales. Back to Vernon. He told me that I had, indeed been paid for the class so wrote an email to the instructor, wrote a check and it'll go out tomorrow for her fees. God love him, he didn't yell.

As I am writing this blog, blogster is telling me it can't save (maybe) and there is some problem. I think I'll go back to bed and it's only 11:33am.

  1. I once booked myself a bus trip and the return trip wasn't until the following week, but fortunately they had room on the bus that day. Or I'd show up for a Dr's appointment and they had no clue why I was there.
    Booking flights and hotels etc can be tricky, especially with the timezone changes. Sometimes we have so much to do, so many things to think about, all at once, that everything just blurs together. Forgive yourself. We're only human.
