This has not been a good week.

Monday: My office is supposed to move. I hand-move my plants and other personal stuff, find out in a meeting that I'm not the only one questioning my sanity for staying in my current position, and my computer and phone don't get delivered to the new place until after noon. By the end of the day I have a functional computer and phone but none of my boxes/stuff/work.

Tuesday: Boxes are delivered (finally). I unpack. I cut myself on some hanging file thingies.

Wednesday: I have a ton of work to do and my computer needs rebooting 3 times when I first get to work. I call IT. I spend a good chunk of the morning filing, organizing, and cursing at my computer. Finally, I get it to function for a while, but all of my programs (word, excel, access, exploder, etc.) die regularly and without warning. The IT guy comes to take a look (finally) and says my hard drive is hosed. It will take a day to get rebuilt. I have to steal the temp admin's computer in order to get any work done. I have about 8 projects that all need doing at once and the admin doesn't know what she's doing or how to do the things I need so I have to walk her through it as best I can. I won't have my own computer back until sometime tomorrow. So much to do, no way to get it done.

Argh.

ugh, tech issues are the pits! Pretty much the first 2 or 3 days of school where I work are exactly like the week you just described. But fortunately things always work themselves out, and I hope they do for you too!

Ugh. I hear you. I keep waiting for that magical day/week/month at work when I am finally caught up. Never happens.

Also, hanging folder papercuts are the worst! OW.

I'm with hillary - you need wine, stat.

I hate tech issues. My work computer is currently run by an elderly hamster. Yeah.
I hope the move isn't all that bad!
