Pry My Hands From the Keyboard - Now!
Today I should not be at the keyboard. You know one of those days when you try to catch up on that boring admin stuff and all you make is piddly, stupid little errors. It doesn't matter how many cups of coffee I drink, the errors continue. Little things that mean a lot. You know the days when you know it's the month of July but your fingers insist on typing June? When your brain insists that it's the 12th of July even though your computer is burning a hole in your screen with the actual date - July 13.
What's with that? Could it be that yesterday I declared that if today was hot it would be a vacation day? Today is hot!
One of those days - why now? - why today?
I'm sensing my subconscious at play here demanding that promised vacation and playing havoc with my fingers' connection to my brain. Ah well, as far as tomorrow's visit, everything is posted correctly and ready to go.
Now I'm looking at the mailing list update for my newsletter and thinking - nope, opening an excel spreadsheet right now would be fatal. Who knows who I might be sending an e-mail to. Even my computer seems to be a little off its game as it spins one unresponsive script after another. And I gave up research on the current WIP a few hours ago.
What do you do on one of those days? Me, I think I'm raiding the fridge for an early lunch and heading out into the sunshine. I've created enough havoc for one day. Fortunately, so far it's all been correctable.
