I had one of those weeks last week. You know, one of those weeks where everything goes wrong. Like if you sit in your Adirondack chairs and they break or it rains every time you have plans. I’ve had bad days before, but it seemed like last week was against me. It kicked me in the butt.
We spent that entire weekend looking for Madison’s retainer. You know, those suckers are $500 and insurance doesn’t pay to replace if you lose them. She’s been so good with it that it was amazing that we lost it. We dug through garbage at our house and at my mother-in-laws house too. We looked everywhere inside and outside, under outdoor wooden benches and even the kids beds! We literally tore 2 houses apart. Her orthodontist was on vacation last week, so we couldn’t get in to see him to see what we could do. I knew heading in last week we were in trouble since the weekend sucked.
So that happened. Then, my sites went down. This was a 2 prong problem. First, I had no access to my sites. You may have seen some funkiness on my sites. That’s why (it ended up having to do with a WordPress upgrade. Hostgator ended up fixing it) I was a wreck on Twitter, on Facebook, and on Google+. While digging through the backend stuff, I found out I was almost out of disk space. Now, I currently pay $50 a month (yes, I know its a lot). They told me I’d have to upgrade to the $80 month package (yes, I almost keeled over). I had a great friend dig through my sites and found out that I had a rogue plugin that was backing up my site. It wasn’t suppose to be saving to the server, but it was without my knowledge. I had backups dating to 2007!!!! Needless to say, we deleted 10 GB of backups!!!!! (Crazy, isn’t it?).
Those two issues pretty much consumed my week. However, this looked up by the end of the week. First, Hostgator fixed the issue. In talking with friends, I found a cheaper host for my blogs (which I’ll be moving to this week sometime if any funkiness happens). I’ll get more space for less money! I know somebody using this company already and they love them. Best of all, I was doing laundry Friday morning, and guess what I found??!!??
My laundry room is also a junk room and also has a freezer and fridge in there (its all downstairs). I was throwing in towels to the washer and her retainer was sitting in front of the fridge down there. It looked great, and I ran it upstairs and brushed it. The bad news is that she can’t get it into her mouth now. However, we found it and it can be adjusted. We have an appointment Thursday morning to do just that.
It’s amazing how your week can just turn better on a dime. I now can sit outside on my Oakland Living outdoor furniture and relax. How did your week go last week?
