Ever have one of those days when you wish you'd just stayed in bed and pulled the covers over your head?
That was the kind of day I had yesterday. Let me warn you up front that this post is going to be a pity-party of sorts for me.
My day made me think about the current book I'm reading, DECLICIOUS AND SUSPICIOUS by Riley Adams. The protagonist in the book, Lulu Taylor, has a day where she wishes she had stayed in bed. Given her day started off with car trouble and mine didn't, I still understand her reasoning.
My day started with me running behind (not unusual). Then it was a long day at work. Our system went down the night before and everything was running very slow yesterday. When I left work to go grocery shopping it was pouring rain.
From the grocery store I went to the local Sam's Club to pick up an order that I had placed online the night before. Trying to place that order should have warned me what the coming day was going to be like.
Back to the story. I picked up a few more items to go with my order. When I went to get my order I had to wait in line at least 20 minutes to check out and then they overcharged me.
I usually pickup dinner on Fridays because I get home late. Last week the fish place didn't include the hushpuppies with my order. Yesterday I decided to pickup burgers. Simply order - four burgers, two large fries. I got home and only had three burgers, two fries. I didn't call or go back because we live in the country. It's a good 20 to 25 minute drive back to the restaurant - not worth the trip.
After all that, I had also lost an earring. Don't ask me how, where or why I didn't notice that I had lost one. It wasn't one that has post on back, it was just the wire-type that hangs. The bad part is that I really liked the earrings. They were given to me by a friend.
The other bad/good thing to come out of the day was that I realized I didn't have a post ready for today. So that's why you get to read about my rants and my pity-party.
So, how is your day going? Does it seem that when one thing so wrong, everything goes wrong?
