Millions of ways to screw up

Leave it to me to find a way to screw up.

Yesterday and today I've been taking part in a training program as one of the trainers. It's not been that bad. It's eaten up most of my time, but I'm getting paid for it. :^). After I was done today, around 4 pm, I hung around because Jackie and Todd and I were going to play games on the computers.

I let Lis know about this ahead of time. I told her I probably wouldn't be back until 9pm. But then things ran long, so I dropped her an e-mail saying I'd be back & online around 11:30.

Of course, it was almost 12:00 by the time I got online. ICQ didn't want to connect. *grumble* Anyway... it's now 12:23 and Lis is off to bed. And I don't know where I messed up.

At one point, she made a comment about me not having posted an entry in a few days. *shrug* I guess that's why I'm doing this now. Hopefully she'll read it in the morning and learn about how I was feeling right now. Not that it'll do any good, but journals rarely do any good.

I tried to suggest something to do (play backgammon) but Lis wasn't interested. She just headed off to bed, but her voice made me feel as if I was to blame for her running off to bed. I tried to suggest something to do... does that mean I have to find exactly what she wants to do?

Nothing like trying to live up to an invisible, unknown standard.

*sigh* I didn't want her to go, but I didn't want to keep her up. So I let her go to bed. And now I'm here by myself.

Why do I always find a way to screw things up....
