a blog for the ACK! no good very bad terrible day
Have you ever had one of those days?
The kind that started off wrong from the very begining and then went down hill on wheels? Or maybe, it started off decievingly fine, and then the rampent one-after-another problems started. That was my weekend. I thought I had it all under control. I thought I had the ability to spend a lovely sunny weekend heading to my neighbors for an all-street neighborhood ice cream party and then relaxing with my family.
But no. Life was waiting to ambush me.
I returned home and decided to send out the prizes from my latest newsletter campaign and what do you know? I found out that the brand new, took me an hour to set up, email addy was screwed up. This is the one that was supposed to save my butt from getting my own email domain name and paying out big bucks. But it wasn’t working.
All the people who, instead of sending their emails to my regular address and had hit reply to my newsletter, were hanging in limbo. Not only that, it asked them to open an account, and that was super confusing. So, I spent Saturday afternoon moving my website to a paid location and trying to get a new email addy with my own name on it. Grrr.
Not only was this not what I wanted to do, but it was super stressful. I don’t like filling in those forms on a good day, but when I have to make all kinds of decisions about things I really don’t understand, and create multiple passwords, it becomes a no-good, very bad, terrible kind of day.
Damn the auto-fil!
I kept making errors. And the auto-fil didn’t help. You see, I have two names, and I do bills for my folks, so sometimes that auto-fill puts the wrong info in the boxes. And I correct it. Then something is wrong, the page resets and the auto-fill changes everything. Grr.
Anyway, that was Saturday and I went to bed totally stressed. Sunday I started off stressed, but Sunday the karma was much better and everything was running smoothly. My website made the shift over to the new service provider without a hitch and I set up the new email. Almost. It’s still doing something where it figures out where everything is, so it’s still not recieving any emails, but I’m confident that will fix itself.
So confident I took my free time to write this blog!
Hope you all had a better weekend than I did and you are having a fabulous start to summer!
