A week of Mondays

This has been one of those weeks where everyday has felt like Monday so far.  I'm trying to figure out how I pissed off my karma keeper.  Three of the four days this week were not Monday and they have felt just like what you would imagine a Monday should be like...

Monday was well Monday.  There were two things that happened at work that could have been corrected after the fact but it was one of those things that could have been bad if someone hadn't caught it for me.  I was super thankful that they were caught before it was an issue.  I probably should have seen it earlier but I didn't.  Of course no one wants to mess up at work but it always concerns me when it happens; all I can think is how could I have caught that?  I should have caught that.  Oh well, it was caught and it was fixed.

Tuesday was even more fun than Monday.  I arrived to work about an hour and 15 minutes later than I normally because I couldn't get my car started.  I had to start another one of our vehicles that we don't drive often to give myself a jump.  I dropped my daughter off at her great grandparents (who normally watch her) and headed off to work.  After I got to work, I turned off my car and just tried to restart it before I when in.  *click* Nothing.  At least I made it to work.  After work I tried to start it again and again, nothing.

It did actually end up starting without a jump after I had already called someone to help me.  I felt a little silly for having asked for help but oh well.

Yup, see that battery buried under all those nifty safety brackets

Once I got the car home I wanted to see if my battery was bad or if there were a bigger issue.  After 7 bolts and a few bruises on my arm because of the way the battery is in the engine compartment I got it out.  Whew.  I did have to go to the auto parts store to see if I had a bad battery or not.  Since my husband was at work, I drove the truck that I used earlier in the day to jump myself to the store... mind you it has no current plates or driving insurance.  Whoops.  Well, the choice was either use the unplated vehicle or walk... I wasn't going to walk with that heavy battery to the store.  It's close but not that close.  Luckily for me it was a bad battery...

Wednesday was another day of fun work corrections to do.  I got in and found that I had made a similar error to the one we caught on Monday.  I could not have been more frustrated with myself.  Again, I had to apologize to my boss and tell her that I would definitely be more careful.  I know we all make mistakes but I get so frustrated with myself when I make the same mistake.  Oh well, she understood and I made some changes to try to ensure that it won't happen again.

Thursday, hasn't been bad but today has been so slow.  I mean I feel like every time I look at the clock it's only moved one minute.  I really just want this work week to get done...

It definitely wasn't the worst week ever but man has it felt super long... super long...

I'm glad it's Friday and it no longer feels like a Monday.  Whew!
