I would say Mercury is in Retrograde but it’s not so I need something to explain things this week. It’s been a week of weird little things going wrong. Almost a test of my patience, like will Kristie throw a fit today, let’s find out.
Ok so here’s the list of stoopid things I lived through this week. None are a huge deal just lil annoyances.
Monday: Accidentally put an ink mark on my brand new Madewell bag. Given the color of the leather trying to get it out would do more harm than good. Luckily it’s in a not so noticeable place.
Tuesday: Deleted the entire social library of documents off SharePoint at work. BFD! Panic ensued for about 20 minutes but I was able to call someone and reverse the damage. No harm done! Then that night I had to rush out while making dinner cause we ran out of olive oil. Come to find out the car was also out of gas so to the gas station to spend all my money, I went. And later that evening Josh broke one of the Crate & Barrel glasses that we had just replaced the weekend before.
Wednesday: I forgot my Pure Barre mandatory socks at home and didn’t realize it until 20 minutes before class. If I would have not went the class then they would have charged me as a no show so I went and bought a second pair of socks for $12. Ugh. Afterwards, I thought I’d take the Ashland bus home rather than the Damen bus. For some reason I thought it would be faster. Not only did I wait on the bus forever, but then that bus decided it wasn’t going the whole way and I had to get off and get on another bus just to get home.
Thursday: Went to make dinner and realized the pasta had been in the cabinet too long and had bugs in it. Yuck! Hello Trader Joe’s, nice to see you for the third time this week.
Friday: (Today) I went to make my usual breakfast protein smoothie in the blender and followed the same steps as I do everyday. Apparently this time, the bottom of the glass blender pitcher was loose and came off when I sat it on the base. There went smoothie all over the cabinets, floor and on the dog and me. I get that all cleaned up and get dressed. Before I leave I go to put some oil on my legs and realize a big drop fell onto the vintage silk Betsey Johnson dress I’m wearing! NOOO! Luckily I knew what to do. Dropped some baby powder onto the stain, let it sit for a few minutes to absorb the oil, clean it off and then blow-dry the dress while I’m wearing it. (You are laughing because you can picture all of this in your head right?) Then lastly, I go to replace the dog’s poo bags and drop the roll in a way that it completely unravels. Ain’t no body got time for that! So it’s just lying in the counter for now until I can rewrap it later.
Then you can add to the mix the radio silence about or condo purchase most of the week due to Jewish holiday.
I’ve done my best to roll with the punches and accept the nuisances without getting upset. It seems that I’ve been doing a good job of handling it so maybe I’ve chilled out a bit in my old age?
On the up side, my fashion game has been A+ this week.
Details to come soon.
