    Update: Husband's back pain is still completely gone after his back surgery (double laminectomy). Just has minor soreness where the incision was.

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 6

    1. Got the main development part of my high priority task completed and sent off to relevant parties. Over half a day later than I'd anticipated as my "surely I'll get it done by then" scenario but considering how rubbish I was feeling about working yesterday it makes sense and at least it's done.
    2. Got over my anxiety about actually sending the thing to some of the people regarding point 1.
    3. Got some info back about another task, which will allow me to get something else completed before I go home.

    Lol spoke too soon, the info I got back for point #3 still doesn't make complete sense. To be sorted out tomorrow.

    1. Feeling much better after almost an hour rant session with the chill part of our team at work.
    2. My high priority task might get done today after all. The report has been signed off.
    3. There's a boring training session today that will let me get away from my desk.

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 6

    1. Some moron flicked a cigarette butt into the roadside garden bed which had started a small smoking fire by the time I was walking past it on the way back from buying groceries (none of which were a liquid that could be poured on it), and my attempt to stomp it out wasn't working... But someone pulled over and had 3 bottles of water and we managed to put it out.
    2. My shoe is now burnt on the bottom, and I needed new shoes anyway so this is a good excuse to get some.
    3. Got almost all the groceries I'd decided to get. I have to be conservative about bag-space, so had to skip one thing and didn't find the other thing. If I hadn't skipped the milk I may have used that for point one... Which would've been disgusting.

    Re: 3 Positive Things Part 6

    1. I have been trying my best to get this task out on time. It's not going to happen, once again due to a rubbish system, and because I didn't proactively ask if there was a problem (rather than thinking that no news was good news). One would have hoped that someone would pass back that there was a problem rather than sitting on it until there's no time to do anything about it, but apparently not. But, the positive is that I really did try even though it went to ****.
    2. Now that I know that it's a problem, I have taken all the steps that I can to try and get it sorted out. Still not going to fix things, but better than doing nothing.
    3. I'll be having leftover chili for dinner, with 90% odds of an icecream for dessert.

    Speaking of statistics... wonder what’s the odds are of not having one or more idiots and Incompetents as co-workers?

    Slim to none unless you are self-employed and a sole proprietor with no employees.
