No, the title of this post is not referencing my state of mind, but is instead in reference to the Green Day song, specifically the opening lyric "do you have the time, to listen to me whine, about nothing and everything all at once." Because I'm a little whiny today, I'm not going to lie. Yesterday was a DAY my friends. You know those kind of days that every time you turn around you want to scream? Yeah. Most of it centered around getting a new PC at work. This was supposed to be a very good and exciting thing since my old one was really getting slow, going through cycles where it wouldn't load anything, etc. But, nothing ever goes smoothly with these kinds of things!
The problem is, I run a program on my computer that allows me to print the employee security name badges. And this program is not super cut and dry. Oh no. So, my IT guy spent all afternoon trying to get it to work and then we called the outside vendor that supports the program, who wasn't available until the last half hour of my day. We got it all solved just under the wire. But while this was going on it was next to impossible to do my job, which ok, wouldn't normally be so bad, but my boss is on vacation right now so things are a little busier than usual, so it was mildly frustrating.
I got home and was all thumbs with stuff there it seemed, I needed to boil potatoes so we could make pierogis last night (I married a good Polish boy after all) and I kept dropping them everywhere, but fortunately they seemed no worse for the wear. Then we made the pierogis which led to a delicious dinner, but we made a double batch, so it took a couple of hours. My back was killing me by the time we were done. (Side note - if you're on Vine, I made a video of what all goes into them) So we crashed on the couch for a bit and then more or less went to bed. So I felt like I didn't get much downtime after my crazy day.

Today I hope is better, but I'm not going to lie, I'm not feeling great in the lady department and I am missing out on a super cool event at the Minnesota Institute of Arts tonight that is all about fashion - specifically vintage - so I'm sad panda about that, but I had other plans I couldn't miss unfortunately. So I wore a cute outfit that includes some vintage in the spirit of the event and I'll live vicariously through my other blogger friends that I know will be attending (looking at you Miss Cambria - I expect a full report!)
So there you have it. Told you I was whiny today! It's all so trivial, first world problem stuff, but I gotta say, I feel better getting that off my chest! Here's to a better day today!
