Tonight I am angry, and my family will tell you it takes a while to get me really angry, but tonight I am and last night I was, last night Will was playing basketball with his friend and smashed the window, boy did I lose it?! I rang my husband to tell him to organize a glazier and he said “Oh it’s OK no big deal we’ll fix it” I was ANGRY!!..is this a side effect of the detox process maybe? I don’t know maybe my hormones are outta balance with the new routine, I don’t know but I am ANGRY!!
Today I went downtown for two reasons A– I was bored and I needed to get out of the house and B- My Cousin Lee told me about these blank cards she brought and after we did our Zentangle art class last Saturday I thought I’d design my own Christmas cards and make a few for special people.
So I set “run keeper” and off I went Id arranged to meet Amber and Scarlett down there and get lunch. So I decided to go to Lincraft and see if they had the blank cards there, Lee couldn’t remember which shop she got hers either Big W or Target.. well, I found them in Lincraft, 10 cards with envelopes for $2.99 and different shapes as well, so I got a rectangle and a square set and I also found a rubber stamp with “Merry Christmas” so I was happy, I found them quickly and easily, paid for them and went outside.. and that was the last time I saw them *insert sad face*
I “think” I got Squishy’s bottle and settled him down for a nap, and I “thought” I had put my shopping bag under the pram in the basket with my purse…All day I’ve been planning in my head the guide lines I would draw and the style I would attempt to do, and I knew Jasmin and Squishy were going out tonight so I am off duty in “Grandma mode” and would have time to do a few cards before I answered some penpal mail… so I go to the pram to find my bag of goodies and ITS NOT THERE!!! Oh!
So I quickly run for my phone and text Amber in case I put them in her pram by mistake… Nope, she hasn’t seen them or got them! I was so disappointed because that right there apart from ruining my night is $10.95 wasted! I really felt like I wanted to cry, OK, it’s not a big deal to the rest of the world and probably in my world it’s not such a big deal, “take a chill pill” but then I got angry! HOW could I be so stupid, and how did I manage to get my purse and not the little bag with my goodies, Idiot!
So now as I type this I am smiling because it really is silly, but I hate to waste money on anything, and I am on a limited budget in regards to art supplies, so it’s mostly disappointment.. Oh well, I think I’ll go dig in the garden and see if that helps calm me down!!
On a brighter note I finished my yearly goal 42 days earlier than expected and walked 400 kilometers. Actually as of now it’s 406.1 kilometers. I am so proud of me for that effort. On a more brighter note, I got to spend time with Amber and my ‘Sweetpea’, she is such a funny girl, Pulling herself up on furniture and dancing. Hard to imagine in two more sleeps my little Angel will be One year old.. it’s gone way too fast!!
Hey there, I found you via the NaBloPoMo blogroll.
😦 These things happen sometimes. I usually carry an across the shoulder bag from Kipling to keep all my stuff in, and if all else fails I tie the plastic bag to the strap.
400 km is pretty amazing! 🙂 I am walking a minimum of 25 a week at the moment, sometimes 35 if I walk on the weekends as well.
As part of NaBloPoMo I try to comment on as many participating blogs as I can, and I also add participating blogs to my feed reader. So I’m just dropping by to let you know I’ve added your blog to my feedreader, I’m reading you loud and clear.
I have created three bundles on Inoreader so that bloggers can easily visit other participating NaBloPoMo bloggers which you can find here –
Your blog is in the second bundle.. I have a link up going at my place so my readers can find participating blogs which you are more than welcome to add your blog link to.
Looking forward to seeing your posts. You may see me drop by again during November, but it might be December before I finish my first drop by to blogs if I don’t get faster at leaving comments. 🙂
Happy NaBloPoMo to you!
Thank you so much for dropping in and commenting. I’ll come and read you now.
