Maybe I’m just over emotional this week but it feels like any small thing that could go wrong is taking the liberty to do so. I feel like I have my own personal hurricane wreaking havoc in my world.
Just today: the roofer never showed up to evaluate the roof of the house we’re trying to buy, the guy checking on the gas leak there never showed up either; the dishwasher in our current home is on the fritz, only working when you caress the buttons just so; I was making two beautiful quiches for dinner and after preheating our crappy oven for the typical 45 minutes it takes to heat up I noticed it was still cold so I had to inconvenience my sweet neighbor for her oven and give her one of the quiches as a thank you… and now I have half a dinner to serve an hour late and still need to figure out how to fix an oven; my feline domesticus buttholeicus ate the last living morsel off the hops plant my mom bought for Jason and me as a wedding gift; the Radon test still hasn’t arrived at the lab after a week of travel which means it’s going to be invalid if it doesn’t arrive within two days – we looked on the package to see where it’s headed and, of course, it’s headed to the East coast which is currently being pummeled by Frankenstorm Sandy and USPS may not be running on time in the area….
all this and it’s only motherbleeping Monday!
I’m off to soothe my nerves with some cozy tea, chocolate and maybe a chick flick. And even through my hormone induced tantrum I truly hope all the folks being affected by Frankenstorm Sandy are able to stay safe and dry tonight and my thoughts will be with them all. As of this writing there have been reports of +15″ of rain in areas and over 2.5 million without power so far. Yeesh.
Ciao, I miei amici-
