Remember this cat? I had this poster in my room when I was little. On the poster it said "Bad Day?". Anyway, I think I ordered it from a Scholastic Book Order when I was 12, back then I had no idea what a truly bad day was.
Today was a bad day.
Before I go on, I should say that everyone is healthy. And so, this is a superficial bad day & I know in a year, maybe less, I won't even remember it.
Pick a day. Any day. And then close my bank on that day. Honestly, it probably won't affect me. There's usually not too much that can't wait until tomorrow.
Pick a day. Any day. And "temporarily" make my email account "unavailable" to me. No big deal. I have Facebook & a phone. I will survive.
Today the BMO in Okotoks "crashed" & was closed.
Today my business email address was "temporarily unavailable" for 8 hours (so far)!
Today I needed, NEEDED a couple things to happen.
I needed to lock down a deal so I can make the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT I have been talking about. The one I was HOPING to announce on August 30th.
I needed to email a contract to someone.
I needed to write pay cheques to my staff.
I needed to make a deposit so I could pay my store's rent.
And there are some other things..... I needed to happen.
And without going into any financial details, those things could only happen at the Okotoks branch or through email, so those things didn't happen.
So I started to cry. Maybe it's pregnancy. Maybe I'm just dramatic (you think?).
So my Husband picked me up to go to lunch. And he reminded me that everyone was alive & kicking. That most people are understanding. And that stressing out, well that's good for nothing. And just like that I feel better.
On a side note: Congrats to Kacey Browning (well, the whole Browning Family really). Kacey had a baby girl who they named Sloane (LOVE IT!). She is gorgeous. Mom is well. I am jealous.
