ups & downs

Yesterday, a friend and her kids came over to swim. At one point we were joking that if her 2yo went under water, I would have to jump in and save him. And then about 10 minutes later, her 2yo DID step off the baja step and go under. And, I DID jump in to pull him up. That'll teach me to go pool-side in my clothes with my phone in my pocket!

Thankfully, he's just fine and was only under for a few seconds.

A few weeks ago, I noticed my laptop was acting wonky. I had let my online backup service lapse, so I renewed it and tried to back up my laptop & 2 external drives. One external drive kept hanging the backup process, and failed before it backed up anything. I was sure it was toast, and that I lost the pictures and old documents I had stored on there.

DH finally had a free moment to look at it and discovered the power supply was bad. All my data is safe!

I was scheduled to teach a 2 day class that pays a bit higher than usual and was psyched about the opportunity. Then, I agreed to teach another class, and as a result, was pulled off the 2 day class in exchange for a 1/2 day class. I was pretty disappointed about losing the potential fee.

Then, my sitter called to let me know she wasn't available those 2 days after all. It'll be easier to find someone to watch the kids for a 1/2 day vs. 2 full days, so it actually works out!

Most times, it takes longer for things to cycle from bad to good, but that cycle seemed to speed up this week!
