And then I cried.

Wednesday started off a little rough. 

It went a little something like this:

5 a.m. Child climbs over me to get in my bed.

5:30 a.m. Same child makes a few OH I KNOW THOSE gagging noise, I throw said child back over me - none too gently - and rush to bathroom for minor vomit incident.

5:45 a.m. Scrub the teensy bit of minor vom from the floor on hands and knees. Sanatize some things. Start laundry.

6:30 a.m. Text boss explaining situation. (For the record, Karl and I generally try to trade off sick days; it was my turn.)

7:00 a.m. Prepare other people to leave the house. Tamp down jealousy. Feel slightly better when I realize I can stay in my pj pants. 

9:00 a.m. Open work email, confirm scheduled communication and social media posts for a client. Continue checking and responding to email.


9:15 a.m. Continue working WHILST STILL REMAINING WITHIN ARMS REACH. Because Nate.

9:30 a.m. Email and links go out.

9:31 a.m. ALL CAPS EMAIL FROM CLIENT VERY ANGRY ABOUT TYPO IN FACEBOOK POST. Insert scathing words here. (For the total record, the spelling error was in the copy of the text pulled into a facebook post by a link so I didn't actually write it, but, regardless, the client was right. I should have checked it.)

9:32 a.m. Unexpected tears pop out of my experienced, old lady eyeballs. Unanswerable questions begin from 7 year old. (Q: What's wrong? Why are you crying? Is someone hurt?) (A: Mommy's upset because she made a mistake for her job and needs to fix it.) (Silent A: AND THIS GUY - who signed his email with just his initial - is not being very nice about it.)

So, like I said, a little rough. It's not like I have never cried about a client or a job before, but it's been a long time and this was something very minor and fixable. I think it caught me off guard on a morning where everything was out of routine and not the normal Order of Wednesday Mornings. I'm not immune to leaky eyeballs. I'm also not asking for sympathy; in fact, please don't - I'm over it.  The client may have been having a really shitty Wednesday morning himself.

I guess, as we approach the weekend and get ready to go out to eat or go to work or play with our friends and family, I'm just hoping to approach it with more of a Be Kind kind of attitude. So, all in all, a good reminder for me : LIVE A NON CAPS LOCK KIND OF LIFE.

You know, LIVE A NON CAPS LOCK KIND OF LIFE is a really great line. It should be a t-shirt or billboard or something. Hope your day got better.

dude i hear you - used to deal with fb posts on the reg and no one is ever just happy :) good for you for considering that Mr. Single Initial may have also been having a shit day; sometimes flipping it like that is the only way i can prevent myself from totally losing it.

Well, it's like 4 months later when I'm reading this, so I'm just gonna say, I hope you are having a lovely Tuesday today! And sorry you had a terrible morning back in October. That stinks. Boooo to bad days.

P.S. Do you have sunshine in Arkansas right now? My entire world view is gray today. Please ship sunlight up here. Thanks.

So I'm just now reading this and I can't relate to any of the kid stuff but I can totally related to the work stuff. Our jobs sound similar. And I make mistakes and miss things and I cry too. I know you don't want sympathy so I won't give it to you (ha!) but this post is helpful for me because it's good to know I'm not alone with this stuff. Next time I makes a mistake a cry when someone corrects me harshly, I can tell myself "this happens to Kat too." Which is much better than the alternative inner talk that I'm guilty of ("you're stupid/not good enough'" etc.)

And the fact that you deal with this stuff AND kid stuff is mind blowing. I deal with the work stuff but that's all I've got to deal with. All I take care of is me. You deal with the work stuff and care for kids and dogs and husband. Whoa. I shouldn't complain!
