reality hit today when I got to work and my server took a hit; losing a sql server folder so none of our critical, or ANY for that matter, work can be done, hundreds of partners with no data to receive and we can't process any.
And there are database backups, but no system backups.
but outside of that current crisis which I am anxiously waiting to see if our system admins can fix,
reality hit when my sister turned 16... for a ton of reasons!
reality hit when I realized bygones are truly bygones and laughter once again fills those spots.
reality hits when I sit and look at my house and feel sooo happy there
reality freaking bitch slapped me alongside the head last night when some c*cksucker stole my workbag thinking it was my purse. had my wallet, keys, & digital camera in it, and thankfully for me nothing else. camera was where it usually is when i have an event: stuck in my bra.
the reality of it is we caught them on tape. them. as in it was a mom carrying a 2 year old and a dad holding hands with his 5 year old, they saw it, went to thier car, then the dad came back and grabbed it. got it all crystal clear on tape, and once the detectives get the tape, they are making a copy for me to give to my good friends at the tv stations and a picture of the family for me to give to my beautiful print press contacts.
Not making excuses but maybe he thought it was the diaper bag or something... they are making those things look like regular bags now..or he could have just been a blantant thief. Don't know the situation.
oh to answer the reality part....hit when I was 14 and had to help support my family, and has continually been annoying me since.
I face reality every day. I like being a part of it. I never want anyone to say that I live in La La Land.
Last night we were flipping channels on tv and The Restaurant was on, never saw it before, there was a waiter who was quitting and he said something I really liked.........."If I am at a job that I am unhappy with for even one minute, then I feel like I am wasting my life"...then he walked out. I need to have that motto..
yeah, just got back from the bank/car dealership/secretary of state. i used our front page macomb daily picture as picture id to prove who i was! lol!
that pain in the butt part is done.
and i meant to say my phone was where it ususally is during an event: in my bra. not the camera. it's long gone. man, i'd hate to be that guy if he stole my phone, what with 'the mad phone caller's' late calls! lol!
that guy is going to be sorry he ever did that. ESPECIALLY since it wasn't worth it for him. i think i had enough 'equity' in it for it to be a felony as opposed to a misdemenor once everything is added up. it's well over $700 worth. anyone know the scoopage on that? can't wait to get the picture!!
and thanks for the support kids! it's MUCHO appreciated today!
as for reality, i agree with rerun & pauline: it hits everyday.
