Totally unrelated thoughts….

Did you ever have a day when just about everything goes wrong?  Today was one of those days for me… Nothing major went wrong, but, just a bunch of small stuff that added up to one big headache…

I had my parents and brothers visiting over Thanksgiving weekend, and, of course, my Mom accidentally left her glasses “somewhere” at my house.   I’ve been looking since Sunday morning, and, finally this morning I found them… In the freezer.  I’m not going to ask — but, as of right now, they are on their way back to Chicago to their rightful owner.   It doesn’t sound so bad, but, when you realize I spent 1.5 just trying to get the darn things sent out at the post office, you can understand my frustration — especially after you learn that I was sent to the back of the line because I didn’t have the zip code on my return receipt.  (You know the one you get to keep for your records and doesn’t mean anything to anyone else.)  Well the a$$ that waited on me couldn’t hand me a pen to fill it in – nope I was banished to back of the line.   I won’t tell you what I called the guy under my breathe but I would have made any sailor proud!

After that little aggravation, I went on a couple of “go-sees” (which is modeling lingo for going to see people about various jobs for photo shoots or runway jobs.)  One person was 30 minutes late.  One person never showed up at all – without so much as a call to my agency to either cancel or reschedule the casting.

I get home only to find out that my fiancee has to add a few more people to our already complicated seating chart for our wedding in the Spring…

And, then I get the brilliant idea of going on Facebook to escape the world for a while.  That was a mistake… I found one rather rude post from someone with nothing better to do than attack me, so, this person has been banned and removed from my Facebook life.  But, it’s just annoying to think that people “hide” behind a computer and write mean, cruel things they never would have the guts to tell you in person.

To cap off the day, I received a phone call from my travel agent to let me know that the hotel we wanted for our honeymoon is going to be undergoing renovations, and, now we have to decide if we want to put up with renovations at our top choice hotel and location or go with something else.

Granted — there is nothing tragic here.  No one died, no one was hurt or fell ill, and, separately these are all problems that could be easily handled…  However, when you put it all together – – it adds up to one aggravating day.

Well enough of my moaning and groaning…

I do want to put some positive Karma in the air, and, try to end the day on a more positive note.  If you are a horse lover and have the means to spare a few extra dollars, a Facebook friend, Jacqueline Collen Tarrolly, is desperately trying to save her equine family from being torn apart.   If you can help please visit her website and take part in The Great Toadstool Farm Raffle or the Adopt a Toadstool Farm Horse program.

Good luck Jacq!
