I thought today would not be so bad. I played house yesterday and today I played computer. Before I got up I wrote out a draft page and thought it would be a simple job just typing it in.
I started typing and then realised I had a tangle of my own making to unravel on MailChimp. That took a while. This time I wrote up a document to remind myself what I had done and why. I had an old account that had an email address of mine that I had stopped using at least 4 years ago. The physical address was 2 years out of date. There was just a load of fiddly things like that to check and update.
The last import on the MailChimp account that I kept for stone coal harvested emails was rejected. Omnivore did not like it. That seemed to take ages to undo. It was a google contacts export and not very MailChimp friendly.
Same with the delivery side of things. Thankfully that was not in so much of a tangle but it needed attention. Again another file was written up as I went along in the hope of making it easier to use next time.
The day started with 1 task that should have taken less than an hour growing into about 10 hours and still being not quite done. I kept on finding things that needed attention that stopped me completing the job in hand and doing those.
Its nearly midnight and I am giving up. I have just counted the list of things that things that need to be done to fully complete today’s task. It comes to 17. I only started with one this small task this morning that mushroomed.Definitely not a pretty day more like an ugly one.
