Well, my name is not Alexander, but I've had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. :( I don't want to go into details, but three issues of concern conspired to have me in tears at my desk by 11:30am. Luckily, one of them is completely resolved, the other is mostly so, and the third will hopefully be by Wednesday.
The hot cocoa to which I treated myself around 1pm did its part to make things better. More importantly, when Nick heard I was having a bad day, he invited me over for dinner even though he has to be up at 2am tomorrow for work. Now - home, snuggled into pajamas, and writing about my yucky day - things feel a bit brighter. Thank goodness!
