My email was fubar’ed all morning. It. Was. Horrible. I got up, pulled the children out of bed and got them ready for school as usual. I like to check my email between the time Princess O gets the bus for the middle school and the time I have to chauffeur the C-man over to the elementary school.
I fired up my trusty laptop, opened up the Internet and clicked on my email. And what did I get? I got an error message. An error message that said “launch failure” with a big long number after it. Hmmm, interesting. “Well”, I thought to myself, “I’m sure it will be working later”.
So I took the C-man to school, went to the gym, ran my errands and came home. I even managed to get all the groceries put away before I checked my email again. And it still wasn’t working. What!?! Are you kidding me? It’s been ages, why isn’t this working yet?
I have no idea why not having email access was making me so squirmy. It’s not like I get a lot of email. Well, I mean I do, but most of it is just spam. It’s not like I was expecting anything particularly important. But I proceeded to check on it approximately every 10 minutes for the next several hours.
Cleary I have a problem.
