Apparently, it doesn’t take much to acquire a good habit. I’ve gone to the gym three days in a row, and although I planned on going today, I need to spend my time elsewhere and I’m feeling a little cranky about that. Similarly, before I run off to checkmark boxes on an endless list of to-do’s, I sat down for my daily injection of the word-prompt. I haven’t bookmarked the site, so I typed in WordPress.com and felt myself exhale all of my worries (so many and I’ve just started the day!). I smiled quietly to myself, clicked on Log In,…annnd got an error. Hm. I tried again, but same thing. I tried again, stroking the keys a little more lovingly, but same error! Suddenly I was frantic! How could this be?! WHAT? Wait, no. I’m obviously doing something wrong. So I shut down my browser, waited a few minutes, opened it back up and tried again. It was still there: HTTP ERROR 500, haunting my waking hours like a poorly mixed Mocha!
Like a bad habit, I quit the browser and turned my attention to another. I began again elsewhere: click click click wordpress.com; and then I glared at the Log In button…click.
HTTP ERROR 500
Sonofa#$%@! Would I have to write…to myself today? What about the bonding with my oldest son? The joy I feel when he walks in from school and asks with a grin “what’s the word today, mom? Tell me what you wrote!” It is a balm to my aching heart as my children grow older and further away from my snuggles and NOW! (click), NOW WORDPRESS SERVERS ARE, oh, that one worked. Mmmm, yummy Mocha today. Moving on.
