Yesterday was one of those days where dragging my dead asker out of bed was not a good idea but if I'd stayed in bed I wouldn't know that now. Sigh.
I got dressed and drank my morning cuppa and gathered the paperwork I needed and I headed down to the south side of town to see the director of the program through which I am "employed" -- I don't have a job; I have a training assignment. She was in a vicious mood and insulted me (typical) but then went a step further and made a crack about my handicap after telling me that I'd be leaving Jeff and going to a new assignment soon. Sigh.
I shut up and got the hell outta there and took Miss Ruby to Nick the mechanic so he could finish her repairs after they assured me that she would come home this afternoon and had one of the guys drive me home.
At home, I did a few chores and thought about my encounter with the director and the more I thought, the angrier I got. I tend to second guess myself a lot so I called Marcia and told her what the director had said. She was appalled and asked what her problem was and we brainstormed what my next move should be to no avail. Sigh.
I called Diane to explain why I am definitely quitting the committee we both serve on and she told me that she and the founder of said committee are also tendering their resignations. The you-know-what is gonna hit the fan on that. The general agreement is that we can no longer associate ourselves with a dishonorable person. Sigh.
Nick's secretary called and told me the diagnosis and damages (cost) on Miss Ruby and I didn't have a heart attack and she assured me that they would bring her home in a couple hours. Just before five, I called and asked when they were bringing her home. She checked and said Ruby was going to stay overnight but would be home in the morning. There went my errand and dinner plans. Sigh.
I called Marcia again and told her to stop by for a brewski 'cause I wanted company but she had to pick up her grandsons after school. Sigh.
It was one of those days where I had no luck at all. I hate days like that. However, I got to thinking and this crossed my mind . . .
