I realized it was because I have a crazy, busy week this week, my new printer sucks, and I have spambots. So to bring myself down I actually had to sit and ponder my week and break it down in order of appearance, task and what I could actually control.
I found out I'm only really busy three mornings this week and two evenings with Wednesday adding up to the whole day. It's really not that much when I break it down. Maybe what makes me cranky is when I'm busy every minute I don't have time for all the other stuff I have to do.
Which brings me to my new printer. The printer I bought in October printed fine, but the scanner quit working. Which makes me cranky to begin with. I don't actually use the scanner, but my kids use it for their artwork, and they use it in the evening when I'm relaxing, which means they tell me about it when I least expect it and I'm not fresh enough to handle it.
I had no receipt, no box, but thank God for Costco, who takes everything back and looks up the receipt. So I took it back, got my money back and then bought the updated model printer they are now carrying. I came home, hooked it up and it seemed to work... wirelessly. My daughter came to me Saturday night around 9:00pm to tell me the scanner didn't work, at which point I discovered it wouldn't print from my PC either; although it did still print wirelessly. I couldn't figure it out so I left it until the next day.
So yesterday after I woke up I decided I should try and figure it out again and hopefully dispel one of my cranky issues. I couldn't figure it out and then remembered my computer guys actually work on Sunday. I called them and guess what? They couldn't figure it out either. So he said he'd research it and get back to me.
Yes! I left it in his capable hands, went to lunch with my mom, my family and my in-laws and enjoyed celebrating my youngest's 14th birthday not thinking of the printer at all. When I walked in the door, the phone rang and it was my computer guy who basically said it really did suck and it wasn't just me and I should cut my losses and take it back and get a different model. Which made me cranky again because it's another thing I have to take care of in this crazy, busy week.
And my finally cranky issue: Spambots. They are flooding my website and skewing my stats and the powers that be claim there is nothing I can do about it. I don't buy it, but again, I'm leaving it at their feet and will have to accept their decision to help or not. Like Juno said in the movie with her name on it: "I'm busy dealing with things way beyond my maturity level." Hopefully, spambots won't take my site down. If they do I'll take them down into the cranky hole with me.
