One of those days...

I had one of "those" days the other day. You know, the kind were nothing goes right! I made the mistake of going to the grocery store right after work when I was hungry and cranky. (cause I was hungry) I figured I'd do the "in and out thing"...but NOOOOOO....I had to have Miss Talky checking me out! She was so busy talking to the lady behind me that she decided that she would ring up HER cantaloupe and put it in MY bag......first bad moment! I said, "this ISN'T my cantaloupe". She said, "Oh, sorry...but I can't fix it here, you have to go to the service desk." In my mind I'm saying, "BUT YOU DID IT....IT WAS YOUR STINKIN' FAULT FOR YAPPIN' AT THE LADY BEHIND ME!!!!". Instead I said, "oh." Well, it did get fixed by the supervisor in the next register and I got my $1.25 back for the cantaloupe that wasn't mine! (hey, that's 5 skeins for floss on sale at JoAnns!)

Anyway, my next, moment came when I knew that I had to get turtle sticks at PetsMart. Got the sticks, got to the checkout, only to find the cashier didn't know how to ring up gift cards....another WAIT!!! (don't they teach you this in Cashier 101 when you get hired????)

Third moment....had to go to Borders Book Store. Now I know you have all had this moment....you watch someone get into their car to leave....BUT THEY DON'T LEAVE!!! They see you waiting...BUT THEY DON'T LEAVE!!! The pick their nose, put on lipstick, call their boyfriend, vacuum the inside of their car....BUT THEY DON'T LEAVE THE PARKING SPACE!!!! ARRRRGGGGGG! So, I go to another parking space only to have another lady pull in it quickly first!!!! Then I find a space in the next aisle...good....but as I do, who starts pulling out of her space...LADY #1!!!! x#$%&...(did I say that????)

Anyway, I went into Borders, and God must have decided that I had enough cause there on the shelf, staring and shouting at me "HERE I AM!!!" was this...........
I magically forgot about all the bad stuff that just happened!!!! I've been searching and waiting for this mag for a few weeks now and there it was!!! AHHHHHHHHH! Sorta like that first cup of coffee in the morning!!!!!

So, needless to say, I went home, ate some dinner, plopped myself down on the front porch swing and read it cover to cover contemplating on what I would start first in the ornament section. By the way, I decided on the Brittercup Kitty!!!

So with that said and done....it's off to a stitchy weekend....till next time, yinz crazy guys!!!
