mercury retrograde???

24 Jun

Monday June 23rd was a day from hell despite the fact I woke up in a glorious mood. But by the end of the day I was convinced that I was either being punished by the devil or feeling the effects of Mercury Retrograde. I am choosing to go with…feeling the effects of Mercury Retrograde.

The list of things that went wrong….

1- I was running late to an early morning client so I decided to eat breakfast in the car. Not the ideal situation but a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. After spending much too much money than one should for a silly carton of scrambled eggs from Whole Foods I spilled them alllll over my car after stopping abruptly at a red light. Not only was it terribly disgusting but I was really looking forward to eating breakfast.

2- I had to unexpectedly write a check for business taxes. Writing checks is never fun…especially when they are unexpected

3- After dropping the check off I decided to stop for a quick-lunch and the machine at the parking structure ate my debit card.

4- Out of the blue our fridge broke yesterday and is making the LOUDEST humming noise known to man. Seriously, it’s mind-numbing and the repair man can’t come until Friday. If we didn’t live in a loft without doors this might be less disheartening. But we do and the noise carries through the whole house. Brian and I barely slept a wink last night because of it. (Don’t worry Frank slept just fine)

5- After weeks of playing phone tag with the blind shop trying to get someone to come out to fix the broken blinds in both our bedroom and living room, I finally got an appointment yesterday afternoon. It was the bright spot in my day. Sadly, Manny, the repair guy couldn’t reach the broken blind on our ladder and didn’t have a taller one of his own. What kind of repair man doesn’t come with his own equipment?  So now I have to reschedule which I am almost positive will take a few more weeks.

6- After Manny left I was so annoyed by the day that I decided to escape my head space and the loud humming noise coming from the fridge by taking Frank to the dog park only to arrive to this…

At that point I decided the day was a complete wash and the only thing to be done at that point was get my ass to a sweaty yoga class followed by a big glass of chardonnay.

    My last few weeks have been ridiculous- and the same for many friends. Mercury needs to stop it.
