BLAME MERCURY – I’ll be back!

I’m calling it – I think I’ve lost my mind, but I’m happy.

As of January 21, Mercury has been in retrograde. What does that mean? Mercury is crossing between the sun and our planet, and it will be messing with the fine people of Earth. Communication is down, and whatever will go wrong does. So why do I think I’ve lost my mind? I’ve decided to move my blog from wordpress.com to wordpress.org during this period. I’ve made a choice to do this during a very frustrating time of the year. Mercury has already affected my life in frustrating ways, I’m not immune to its wonky powers. But knowing it’s not my fault has helped me to stay level-headed. Here is a snapshot of what I have Mercury to blame.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 23:

Mid-morning I opened a newly purchased trip-pod from Best Buy and discovered it was broken. I then returned it and purchased a new one from Walmart, but my order was sent to the wrong store, so I had to cancel and reorder. Later that afternoon when I was in line to pick up my order I missed an important call, along with getting instructions for work. Then when I got home my key broke off in the front door, BROKE OFF IN THE DOOR. We called our general contractor to help out the situation, all while working from my phone. Later I go to film a video with the new tripod, and it was just a disaster. See below video.

Nothing terrible happened on Friday, but then nothing was easy. Let’s move to Saturday.

SATURDAY, JANUARY 24:

I get on my computer at 9:00 am and all is fine, until 10:00 am when it totally crashes. Won’t turn on. I call my IT guy, he isn’t available. I film the video I wanted to film Friday, and my camera battery dies right before I totally finish. I still haven’t watched the footage yet. Then I yelp and find a new IT guy to try out, and drop my computer off to him. Come home, still need to finish my work. Jump on another computer and realize my work account doesn’t have access to a certain part of the website to finish a project. Then I start sending out emails, and my email keeps crashing. I end up getting it all done, and 4 hours after dropping off my computer pick it up and the price is friendly- yay! Once again nothing tragic happened, and looking at the silver lining of finding a backup IT guy things are great, but it was a difficult day.

Blame Mercury Taylor Swift

Now as we are still in retrograde, because it doesn’t finish until February 11, I’ve set a personal goal to get my website and by new blog set up by February 14. Refinery 29 says this is a great time to set intentions and make plans. I don’t have time to wait till February 11, to start working on things, I need to do it now. So please wish me good luck. I won’t be posting again until the switch has been made, which should just be a week or two.

If you came here because of Fit & Awesome welcome! I have lots of stories so please poke around. And if there is any craziness going in your life right now, just blame mercury.
