Help Me Make It Through The Night

Monday.
What a day.  My IT department pulled a password change that totally ripped out all my 5K plus contacts and left me whining.  Sniveling.  Pleading.  People, I cannot do business the way I do business without those contacts.
Yes, I have a copy.  No, it will not import without a password - never mind that it’s never had a password.  So we had to sic the password cracker on it.  But he’s in a meeting.  And won’t be able to attack it until 7 a.m. tomorrow.  And I will be waiting at the office for him to sneak into my computer so we may labor together until my contacts are in their rightful place.
Tuesday
I walk in my door, 6 ish, to find my a/c is history.  No workie.  Hormonal woman, 100 degrees outside, 150 inside.  Well, at least, that’s what it feels like. My normal A/C guy can’t come until tomorrow.  I call another, who gets to the house at 10:30, opens my A/C, and says - something’s come loose.  Your motor’s fried.  And off he goes, out the door, with the last hope I have of being anywhere near cool tonight.
All the hotels are booked.  
My dogs are panting.  I’m sweating.  
Menopausal women and heat do not mix, people.
All I can say is “C’mon, 7 a.m. - at least I’ll be in a cool office.”

Too bad you needed to be home this morning! You could have come to my house! Can the dogs go to the office with you? Or do you have Doggie Day Care? Hope the password cracker is MUY successful! Love you, sending you cool thoughts...

I remember the days of contact lists. I used to be Siamese twin to mine too. My life is so changed now. But sometimes I miss the old charge I got from my job.

But the A/C? I swear I'd drive me and my dogs to the next state if I had to.

Hope things are better today! :) Can't imagine not having access to my contacts. I don't have the 5K you do, but my 300+ are vital to me.

I can't deal without A/C either.
