Glad it's today!
This was my horrible scope for Sunday (horoscope)
You've got some quiet strength under the surface that is keeping you focused and alert through some rather strange times. You may need to show more of your cards than you would like.
Yesterday I drove my son in law to work with my dress inside out. Stopped off at Walmart to buy a set of plastic drawers with wheels to house my paint.
On my trek I returned a receipt at Shoppers drug mart because the employee from the night before forgot to give us a ten dollar gift card for spending over fifty dollars. The bill was two hundred and thirty seven dollars. 143 for two monthly bus passes,30 bucks for a fido card, along with a bunch of miscellaneous items adding up to over fifty dollars. Add 173 plus 50 you get 223 less than the 237 on the bill, not a hard one people.....but mental moron kept me waiting almost half an hour for a ten dollar card to a coffee shop.
Instead of subtracting the bus passes and phone card she is painstakingly adds all the other items, subtracting each of the discounted numbers. After waiting ten minutes, I suggest she subtract the three numbers (that anyone, even me, a numbers hater, could add in their head) off the big number, that is the total. Believe it or not I spoke pleasantly with kindness even though I was frustrated. This supervisor girl, couldn't do it. My large presence sent her to the office to finish the task....twenty minutes later......I get the card which is my daughters not mine anyway!
Came home filled up my new drawers with paint and art supplies, surprise surprise, the wheels break off. So I now I have drawers with no wheels...it's okay though because it still works and might have been too tall otherwise.
Around noon my daughters employee doesn't show up, so I quickly run her...well not really run her, but drive her to work. With my dress right side out this time. I arrive home, finish cleaning the huge mess from pulling my art supplies apart, debate whether to meet my friend for dinner, opt out, pick up my daughter instead, grab a pizza on the way home. Decide to have a quick bath previously poured, because I really don't want to do another thing until I do. Then settle down for pizza and a movie.You'd think that would be it for the evening right? But NOoooooo!
In the middle of watching Bill Maher's movie Religulous , ( that my son in law picked out I might add, a guy who has been through the Christian school system and faithfully attended church twice every Sunday almost his whole life) around eight thirty, his mom, who rarely calls the house, (I mean maybe once a month and always with a reason) and wants to come over.
I adore her and she is always welcome, but I had three loads of laundry on the powder room floor, residual mess from cleaning my art supplies, my hair was wet and disheveled from my bath, Pepper was sick with a horrible head cold, and Bryan had worked seven days plus overtime, but we said sure. Because after all she rarely comes over.
We all scattered, Bryan ran up to put my hot rollers on (because of my knee) I cleaned the bathroom and put another load of wash in, Pepper picked up anything laying around and made tea, Bryan got a banana loaf from the freezer and finished up the dishes, I blew my hair dry and set it, threw on some mascara all in fifteen minutes. They stayed until about eleven...it was a lovely visit, she managed to impeded her son watching a controversial movie which I'm sure she'd not a prove of, ... what a weird day! Still think there's no god?
Two thousand and nine is proving to be very frenetic at times with so many surpises!
