Up, Down, All Around: I'm a Karmic Pinball?!

Today was a good day. Today was a bad day.

I launched out of the house a little after 5am to go visit my sister who is in prison. Yes, the Big House. Addict issues. She's been there for a few months and it was my first visit. Unfortunately, after 2 1/2 hours of driving there, I found I was not on her list of accepted visitors, despite my confirmed reservation. I drove home sad for my inability to see her, but more for her because I know she was excited to see me and it was an oversight on her part and I know she would be devastated knowing my other sister was there and finding out it was her fault I only made it to the parking lot.

I was worried and stressed about seeing her, figuring "What could be worse?" in visiting her. This was much, much worse.

On the way home I stopped at the Sprint store because I need my old phone to tell my replacement about all my contacts. And they could do it - if they had one of my old phones to use because the touchscreen is dead. Against all odds, the 4 repair shops in the region were void of my phone. Boo.

The good? I finally got the cable remote control to talk to my TV. That was actually the height of my day because it was the only thing I accomplished and completed on a positive level.

I'm not a bad person, so I can't imagine it's a karma thing, but as far as energy balance goes, I'm planning on having an amazing weekend with a few nerdy Mensa friends of mine.

Is it Friday yet?

Sorry to say: no, Ricky, it isn't Friday yet! Have a beer and relax.

I'm sorry about your visit to your sister. Hope things get worked out so you can visit.

Ever feel like you're in somebody's crosshairs?

Sounds like a frustrating day. I hope the rest of the week is better!

That sounds like a normal Wednesday for me. I lost a mitten and had cold hand driving today and I did not like it one bit. No sir. But that is nothing next to your lost family time. Just keep moving my friend. Then they can't find you. And don't linger to close to the water's edge at all.

I'm so sorry about your sister. I'm sure it was a disappointment for her.

Luckily, it is Friday; and hanging out with nerdy Mensa friends sounds like a great evening to me.

I try to avoid asking "What could be worse?" It's always something! ;-)

I am also a member of Mensa (since 1991). I don't do much in the way of M activities these days because MrB is not into them and I'd rather spend my time with him.

Yay for Friday!!

Ricky Shambles said...

Kay - now it is :) And yes, that was one of those days.

Debra- kinda, but now we're at Friday and I can breathe again.

Kal- lost mittens suck too.

Pearl- Thanks!

Blue- Nice. Yeah, Mrs.S isn't all into it either, but the RG is not to be missed and is my personal treat/vacation every year.
