A Day Is A Day Is A Day

Ice warming up on Lake Conner.  It’s like steam…

Some days I’m just not in the mood to be happy and cheerful.  Today was one of those days.  It started off way too early this morning when driving to work.  The roads were icy.  They looked like they were only wet, but they were pure ice.  There were times when I slid across the center line because my tires had no traction.  I’m fast starting to really dislike winter…

Then the internet was down when I got there.  Something was off with Frontier/Hughes Net (our satellite service), but they weren’t owning up to it (and no, I’m not afraid to name names).  The printer/fax/copy machine also decided to go kaput. Hurt animals seemed to come into the facility in droves.  One guy brought in an injured hawk in a compression nylon hose garment thing, keeping its wings pinned to its side.  The poor bird was so stressed by not being able to move, and he had to be cut out of this stupid compression hose thing.  The guy who brought him seemed like a caring person, but this is what he thought was appropriate to contain a hawk… pin his wings to his side.  Bloody clueless is what he was.

As well, some delivery guy backed out over one of the facility’s signs and destroyed it…

And never mind the headless deer at the end of the facility’s drive who had been hit by a car. What the hell happened to its head?!  Oh right… a dog was seen running off with it… What??!!

Dessert of the week… chocolate pudding snack with whip cream… 😛

But then I got home, had a nice cup of tea, and checked out my WordPress Reader.  Reading so many good stories and blogs seemed to make all my cares go away…

I got to read about:

Just to name a few!!  It was so nice to be able to come out of myself and go far away from my world.  I appreciate you all, and I appreciate what you write.

Drink of the week… I’m about to go to Maui… keep your flu bugs away from me!!

In other news… I have streaked for 8 days now, for a total of 16 miles.  The mileage will go up a little bit once we hit Maui next week.  And yes!  Only 1 more week until I’m sipping cocktails on the beach… in the warm sun… no snow, no ice… and swimming!!  Swimming in January when I’ve been frozen to the bone since November… I can’t wait!!

In the meantime, to all of you… keep up the great blogging!  You reach a lot of people, and you never know who you might make smile… or make their day with your encouraging words or life lessons!

    Yikes, that’s one really bad day. Let’s hope no more like that for a very long time. I get encouragement and a lift from the blogs I read too – “the internet” is not always a bad thing 😉
    Omg, Maui is only a week away? Squeee, I’m getting so excited for you and can’t wait to hear all about it 🙂

    Wow. What a rough day! I know what you mean though… sometimes, those days where everything seems to go wrong do happen. But in German, we have an expression “don’t praise the day before the evening.” The reverse is also true. Each day we’re up for 16 hours or more, and there’s a lot of stuff that can happen, even in the last few hours, that make everything better. 🙂
    But geez.
    Oh well, Maui is right around the corner! Also, I enjoyed reading about your workplace and seeing those photos. You have such a cool job!!

    I can totally understand about your bad day from the icy roads to the things that people do sometimes. Common sense isnt all that common…Those were some great shares btw, enjoyed reading them. One more week and hello sunshine and palm trees and fancy drinks on a beach!! Yay!!

    Ah you pinned me!!! That is awesome. ❤ I agree about getting lost in the reading. I love it! It makes my world warmer and larger. I HATE THE ICE!!!! I take all back roads and drive like 10 miles an hour driving people nuts. But I get to work and back safely. AND MAUI!! It will be the much needed break from the winter blues. Coming from AZ it is always difficult to deal with so may gray days. Maui and a run is what the doctor ordered. 😉 So freaking jealous of your streaking too! I need a treadmill in the apartment. Otherwise I have to drive on the ice to the gym to use it. 😉 YOU ROCK!!

    Aw, I’m sorry you had a bad day! We had a rough Friday, too…it was more of a “Monday” feel for sure. And your job sounds very cool and something I entirely didn’t know about you. Hope today is brighter!
