I didn’t really get anything done without being idle. Well, mostly.
I woke up around six again, without an alarm for once because I had aspirations of sleeping in. Trying to troubleshoot the blog had made got to bed way late yet again.
As usual I had lots of plans and wanted to write and spin and clean and do strength training. But first I tried to fix the problems with my blog. There had been maintenance two days earlier and that had led to me not being able to upload images to the blog. And every post I tried to publish that had images in it didn’t work.
So I spent quite a bit of time in the morning trying to find out what had gone wrong until the blog didn’t work at all. And I wasn’t able to get into the backend as well. Fun!
Also the last backup I had was from 2017. That had me a little worried.
So I helped with making lunch way too late. There might have been raised voices and in all the excitement a glass was broken and the asparagus cooked for too long. Still, lunch did taste great as always.
(Imagine a picture of white asparagus, potatoes and ham with sauce hollandaise. I posted it to instagram. I’m freejazzmama on there.)
I did knit a gauge swatch for the boy’s scarf, decided to use the bigger needles and promptly cast on with the smaller ones. Which turned out to be an excellent idea.
After lunch I asked the boy to help me think through the blog problem. We did find a possible solution but after that nothing worked anymore.
So I wandered off to spin in front of TV but the tennis match went into overtime and so I had to wait for an hour before the Giro was on. I did spin a bit but my heart wasn’t in it.
I did try to regroup and rearrange my to-do list but then wandered off to the computer again and suddenly realized how I had broken the blog. (Pro tip: when you change something in the config file of a WordPress blog make sure that it’s the right file for that blog. Not the one for your husband’s blog.)
Also, I realized that between the backup and the files in the blogging app I had all my old posts. And once the blog was working again I made a new backup right away. Phew.
All in all it seems I need to take half a day or so to sit down and commune with customer support at my web host.
Rearranging my list didn’t really help because I had run out of time in the day so we ate dinner. There was a minor bread crisis but I solved it with putting some buns from the freezer into the oven.
The boy and I watched some Voyager while I started the scarf for real.
(Here you have to imagine a picture of the fledgling scarf sitting on my knee.)
And the I read a bit, made a list for today and went to bed.
Today will be a pretty full day. The plan is to not make pizza but to clean and to go grocery shopping for the dinner on Sunday and then to teach all the students and go to a concert afterwards. In between I need to do email, write half a novel and a newsletter or something like that. Oh, and set the bullet journal up for June and make goals for June.
Though I have to say that goal-setting didn’t really work the last two months, things went a bit out of hand.
I’m not quite sure if I should enroll in a goal-setting course or just give up on goal-setting altogether like my husband thinks I should.
