Shoulda Stayed Home!


Geez.....Today I wake up, get ready, get dressed (nicely because today is the first day at work with the new boss - so I have on my new fancy pants!) and head out the door with my secret pal gifts for July, my purse, and my lunch pack. Almost make it to the car and trip over a crack. Packages go flying, lunch tumbles across the grass. Slowly get up and look around to see how many people have seen my act of stupidity. Throw the packages in the car look down....great...&*#%ing great! My new pants now have holes in the *$%#ing knees. Argh.... Go back inside....Spend 10 minutes finding something else to wear.... Put it on (not as happy with this outfit!!!)... Go back to the car and drive off.... Go to post office to get postage for secret pal gifts at the automated station because the PO is closed. Get the postage, put first package in the dumpster thingee with the big rolling box that dumps your package into it....Dump it in...It won't open back up! SH$%....My #$%@ing box is stuck in the box dumpster...... Freaking thing.... Cannot open it back up no matter how hard I kick it or hit it....Pretty sure I commited a federal offense trying to get that thing open!!! So, looking at my watch and seeing the guy at the other end of the PO staring at me.....decide I had better head to my eye appt.... Go to eye appt... I am going there because I was there a week ago and the dr told me that he wanted to try me in these NEW contacts because the ones I have been prescribed for the last 10 years are not as easy to find.....[translation: he doesn't make a commission on those contacts!!!] So I say "ok fine I will try another brand" Come back in a week...today... Yeah... these contacts suck! I have to take them off by 7 pm every night because they dry out like a M#$%^& F*@#$%. So I tell him how badly these contacts suck.... and he gives me another pair....come back next week!!!! Good freaking God....give me the ones I had before!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Aye Yie Yie....... Get done there and go back to the PO...at this point I am very PO'd to be back at the PO.... Try to open dumpster again now that the PO is open thinking maybe they had already dumped it.... Nope...still stuck.....Stand in line for 8 minutes...... Finally.... the guy tells me that they can get it out and it won't be stuck forever in the box dumpster..... So.... February Secret Pal...I know you don't know who I am...or at least you aren't supposed to unless you have peeked at my return address and figured me out...If you don't get your package.... Now you know why! (note to all people who have a secret pal...) THIS IS WHY IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO POST WHEN YOU RECEIVE YOUR SECRET PAL PACKAGES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope you get the package! But I may never know if you don't post a message telling me that you got it! Got it?? As if all of that is not bad enough, I get to work and when it is time for lunch, pull out the salad I had prepared for my lunch....It is now 1/8th of the size it was this morning because the dressing I put on it totally wilted it and turned it to mush! Wonderful!!!! eeeeee-Yummy!
(Julia - stop laughing at me!)
I shoulda stayed home....but you know, we have to save our vacation days so we can go to China!! Because we sure as heck can't afford to take leave without pay!!

So I met the new boss.....Seems pretty nice. I hope he liked my outfit!
I so want today to be over.....

Hi! I just wanted to tell you that I came across your journal and I just really enjoy reading it. My husband and I are just starting our adoption process now- sending in our application shortly- and so I am reading about others' experiences because it is just so exciting! Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself and I hope you don't mind me reading!

Sorry to hear about your day! Even more sorry that you posted it at 12:40 so still had half the day in front of you. Sure hope it picked up! :o) If not, chocolate is in order tonight and plenty of it!

I liked your post about people saying Thank You for secret pal gifts. I'm in a different DTC month but the person I send to doesn't normally post a thank you either. Disappointing. I take care to choose and mail my gift, buy extra items for her other children then some months...nothing. Sure hope she's getting them.

Looking forward to hearing how your day improved!
