Man has this been a really annoying, long day. Since it started about 30 hours ago and I’ve spent most of that time working on websites for pennies. Because I suck with how slow I am. I have a frozen shoulder that’s killing me, a totally discombobulated computer situation, and two seriously endangered pets.
A client calls me today so while I’m trying to talk to him with my headset on (skype, doncha know), Beemer (whose sitting on one side of me) decides it’s the perfect time to try to chew through the cord. All the while Clara (squirt) is going bonkers because?? Because I used my voice for something besides bitching at her for hours on end? Because Beemer got a cord and she didn’t? And Beemer is enjoying shredding my new couch, and Clara thinks she’ll give that a try too trying to dig a hole clear on through the cushion.
I moved my computer down here because I thought it was healthier to like actually live in my living room. But fuck this, I bought a monitor for my other computer and I’m moving it into my bedroom. They aren’t allowed in there because they are so damn destructive. I don’t know how that’ll work with the dog, but I guess it beats me keeping her crated all day or tied up at the other end of the room. She can just go ahead and destroy things and I’ll get some peace. Do you know how hard it is to be typing with the kb on your lap and the dog bouncing the whole damn couch? If my kids had been as neurotic and needy as this dog, they wouldn’t have made it past their first year.
I have to be able to get some work done, I have a freaking leaking pipe in my bathroom. Let’s not count that I had to pay that huge amount for car insurance this month (how many people can say they spend more on car insurance than they do gas for the year?). Then there was the broken garage door with had to be fixed unless I wanted to sleep in my car with a butcher knife to save the belongings in my garage. I’m still paying for last years fence. I need my car fixed, the dog fixed, my electrical system fixed, my bathroom fixed and while I’m at it, I need me fixed too.
What the hell, it’s almost 6pm, maybe a little Nick Cave and alcohol will really put me in a murderous mood and I’ll solve the whole problem
