One thing after another

Today was just not a good day...In trying to help Maggie finagle something from behind the office door I nailed my forehead on the corner of a shelf on the wall. Not exactly sure how I did that but it hurt like hell. Now I can't look up or scrunch my forehead (which I tend to do a lot) without out shooting pain. Never mind the headache that won't go away.

Next, I had documents to ship priority mail on the way to the airport. But the post office decided to change the size of the package they accept in the parcel bins. I am so use to running in, using the automatic station which takes all of 3 minutes, dropping the large envelope, and going. As quick and painless as possible. Not so...no more packages accepted in the bins over 13 ounces due to security concerns. What?! Why Now?! So I had to wait in line...yeah that trip took longer than expected which in turn made me leave late for the airport.

Thirdly, Chicago traffic in the rain plus construction. Need I say more.

Finally, this morning a nice lady from United called saying that my flight was "on time but in an over sell situation so we are asking people to take the later flight with a confirmed upgrade, no cost to you". I thought why not, what's an hour or so later leaving. I don't want to go anyways. Bad idea. United made me use 2 of my precious upgrades and when I complained said there was nothing they could do. PLUS due to the rain that started immediately following the flight I was originally booked my new flight took off 2 hours late. I am finally in the hotel about 5 hours after I expected and I can't sleep. And I need to wake up in 6 hours to get my 5 mile run done. blah.

On the upside the Cubs beat the Cardinals 12-3. Go Cubs Go!
