End of My Rope

Today was one of those days I could cry at a whim. Heard a song on the radio, it made me cry, read a sad blog, I was crying. People let me down today, not major things, but enough. Pressure to do something that I'm not ready to do yet, make me upset.

Darryl is on quite the high the last couple of days, he has been waiting for an update to the MacBook Pro and it came through this week. So this e-mail did cheer me up this evening:

Bill Gates, who made his millions by being in the right place at the right time when landed the purchase of MS suffered another set back today when Hard core programmer Darryl _____ opted to the Macintosh platform with the purchase order for a new and improved mac book Pro. Bill was unavailable for direct comment to the media. The reporter did overhear the word "DAMMIT" coming from behind the closed door of his office suite when he was delivered the news. When Bill's secretary was contacted to confirm the comment the media was told Bill was watching a rerun of last season 24 and that word being Jack's favorite word of the moment. It was confirmed that Darryl has decided he would rather switch than fight. (article as found on the underground newspaper web site)

It was from my dad, who is the elephant that never forgets and since the beginning of our relationship has always teased Darryl about being a "non Mac" guy. Now Darryl has joined the dark side, or maybe the white side. Here he is checking my laptop, does he want a glossy or matte screen, while Lucas and I played playdoh.

Hopefully the sun will come out tomorrow

Hang in there kiddo. Whether it's a pregnancy thing, a wife thing, a mom thing or just a woman thing...we women are all entitled to our little breakdowns once in a while.

Surprisingly, I find those tough days are usually followed by a refreshingly easy one. Sometimes it's a good thing when people walk on eggshells around us once in a while! :)

Glad it made you laugh.
When you are feeling low - call someone. That usually brings our spirits up.
