Ah, Friday. You can't possibly know how delighted I am to see the end of this week. I'm sure you've had weeks like this - we all have. A week where every possible thing that could go wrong, does go wrong. A week where nothing conspires in your favor. A week which, by the end of it, you're almost fearful of getting up in the morning because who knows what could happen next.
Well, if the meteorologists are correct, when I get up we'll apparently be in the midst of a blizzard.
So much for Friday being the end of this.
I should be grateful, I know. None of the irritating, annoying, disrupting things that happened were life threatening to me or anyone I love.
But still...major new projects at work completely destroyed my plans to work ahead in anticipation of being away next week, so now I'm behind the eight ball big time. Our mail order prescription drug company completely erased all our records, just in time to renew all the prescriptions. The postman hasn't delivered our mail since we returned from Florida, so apparently I'll have to make a trip to the post office and pick it up (since they won't answer the phone!!) And now this huge snowstorm is coming, foiling my plans for Friday, which included going back to the office, getting the dogs haircuts, and rehearsing with students for a music competition on Saturday.
Which one of the cosmic entities have I offended? Did I enjoy myself a little too much last week in Florida? Is that not allowed in this universe?
I suppose it's the control freak in me, but these kinds of events, especially coming head over heels on top of one another, just send me screaming for the nearest exit.
So perhaps it's good that tomorrow might find me snowed in. A day of enforced peace and quiet, a day to sit in the easy chair, wrapped in a snuggly blanket, watching the snow come down. A day to relinquish my white knuckle grip on life and all its vagaries and just breath easily for a while.
I could certainly use that.
Because it's been quite a week.
How about you? What kind of week did you have?
