Some days have themes

Some days have themes. They are reminders that we can’t control everything and there are times when the Universe conspires against you. All you can do is take a few deep breaths and go make some tea.

Some days have themes, at least for me. These are days when a collection of related things go pear-shaped.

Most of my thematic days tend to be Technology Days. On those days all my technology freezes, crashes or otherwise fails to be usable for at least an hour or three in the morning.

On these days, the only thing I can really do is take a few deep breaths, acknowledge the day and go make a cup of tea while my laptop reboots. I’m beginning to see these days as reminders that control is just an illusion and sometimes the Universe does conspire against you.

Yesterday was a Misplaced Things Day (By Proxy). Our daughter misplaced her jersey and, about 15 minutes later, herself (I found her, there were stern words about that). Our son misplaced his key and his watch.

It definitely felt like one of those days. Thankfully the only thing I misplaced was my sense of humour and not my temper (although it was touch and go there for a bit).

Like I said, some days have themes. Hopefully not today, though.

It drives me absolutely nuts when you find a small child free gap to write or do something and then whatever device you’re working on. I find it much easier to deal with the lost things 🙂

I have far more Technology Days than Misplaced Things Days and my Technology Days have become a form of exposure therapy for me.
