Disappointing Day

Ever have one of those days that just doesn't work out the way that you hoped it was going to. That was mine today.

My day started out today with the phone ringing. When the phone rings at 6:30AM, there aren't a lot of things that can be good. Today, it was that our day care provider was sick and that Noah was going to have to stay home. Not that staying home with Noah was disappointing. It just throws off the whole grove of things. I stayed with Noah until 10:30 and then Misty came home to take over.

From there, I went to a meeting that I had been looking forward for about a couple of weeks. It was supposed to be a roundtable of peers discussing different technologies. These meetings are supposed to be completely non-sales and are to focus on technology problems and solutions. Oddly enough, this is the type of thing that I really enjoy. Today, though, the primary speaker was some idiot from a company that put up a 2 hour sales pitch. Very disappointing, but I did get a free lunch out of the deal.

After that, I went back to the office to finish up the day. I had to handle the same boring stuff that I have had to handle for the last couple of weeks.

When I got home, Misty told me that Noah did not do well at all in Tae Kwon Do. He is only three, but he had been doing very well. In fact, he had almost gotten completely through all of his yellow belt forms on Tuesday. Misty said that Master Justin actually threatened to take his yellow belt away today. Again, very disappointing, but he is only three.

The last thing I was looking forward to today was my Tae Kwon Do class. I really wanted to go kick something. At the end of the day, that really makes me feel better. Today, when I got there, the instructor told me that I would not be able to go to the Thursday classes for the next month or so because they are going to be training for the Junior Olympics. I really think that is cool, but I am going to miss my Thursday classes. I was going to go ahead and work out tonight, but even that didn't work out. I didn't even work up a sweat. Disappointing, but there will be more classes.

Oh, well. Pity party over. Tomorrow is Friday.
