I'm going to intersperse other stuff between the whining so this does not appear to be a whiny blog post; stuff meaning: things nobody cares about.
The day began with an early morning trip to the dentist for a fitting of my new night guard -- woo-hooooo!! All was well until the dentist realized the material was so thin I would wear through it in a month's time, which meant getting another mold made- UGH. If you've never had the "pleasure" of having a mold made - it means a huge molded form is put in your mouth that is filled with what appears to be a thick cement like substance. It it then pushed up against your teeth to the point where if you are like me, you start gagging and your eyes watering. It is held in place until it firms up which feels like a gagging eternity...
That was fun. Again.
On the way home, I dropped VC off at his new school, where he is helping over the summer with the tech crew. Can't get the boy to do a blessed thing at home and yet he volunteers over 15 hours to help set up the computers at his school. hmmmmm.....how does that happen?
Meantime I headed home to do some computer tech work of my own. I had my suspicions that installing my new security software update (Kaspersky 2010 - which is my "Ft. Knox") would be a bear -- but had NO IDEA that the process would take over 5-1/2 hours....Due to a glitch, it was impossible to remove the 09 software. After seeing the dreaded blue screen (aka your computer may crash at any second) twice -- and putting it into safe mode to remove several files (as advised by the Kaspersky rep) by 6:30 last night I had found Kaspersky success!!!
Of course, the day was pretty shot by then...Which left a new ATS (American Tribal Style) dance class that I was trying for the first time before signing up. It is a variation of the tribal style I learned in my previous class.
The girl I was carpooling with drives like Mario Andretti - on a busy highway tailgating at 80 mph. I was already frazzled even BEFORE the class started. I was thinking 'please don't let me be found dead on the highway in my tribal costume with decorative arm cuff'...
Long story short: I was a fish out of water and, ok, I'll be honest, totally sucked.
Normally when this happens I run the other direction and pick up a new hobby as fast as I can, but I'm going to try not to be too discouraged. I guess it was embarrassing because the head of the studio (and my Technique Class instructor) was also there taking the class and got to witness firsthand my "dancing."
I'm ready to bury my head in the sand. But, instead I'll consider it Life Lesson #3: When your new pursuit gives you a beat down, resist the urge to run away and go back to prove to yourself that you can do it (kinda sorta)...
And the Worst Part of the day? I didn't get to read any blogs. Not one.
But enough about me, how was your yesterday: Do Over or Just Perfect?
P.S. Is proper grammar "of yesterday" in the title??
