It's Just One of Those Days....

...y'know, when it's just like, "Get this day over with!" There is no knitting content here, and it's kind of a rant/whine thing, so you may want to skip it.

It was payday today, so off I go to the bank to deposit my cheque through the machine and take some cash out. Fine, I do that -- to be continued later -- and go to the post office where I find a parcel slip in the box. I go inside to pick it up, I hadn't ordered anything, I highly doubted someone just sent me something out of the blue. So I go in, and the lady brings out BF's gift that I mailed to her for her birthday back on September 4. It made it to her town, but it was unclaimed, so they sent it back. With tax the damned thing cost almost $17 to send, and I had to pay that amount again to get it back. So I spent almost $34 on postage for something she never even got. So now she'll wait til next year when I go out for a visit cuz I ain't mailing it again. (BTW it was this and this and this.)

So T and I go to pick up lunch. I ended up debiting my stuff cuz I picked up supper and a couple of other things, too. I was going to stop and get some gas while we were going by the gas station, so I get out my purse, and lo and behold I find that the bank machine cheated me $15. I had no money on me at all except for some change before I took money out of the machine, and there were $20s and one $5 (which they don't even have in the machines around here -- all you can get is $20s). So after lunch I go back up to the bank, and they readily enough give me a $20 for the $5. I've never had any problems with a bank machine before, and it's weird cuz my mother had the same thing happen to her at a different bank in town a few months ago. She didn't have any problem getting it fixed, either, they say it happens.

So the icing on the cake was when Hubs called me. He was getting ready to do a run to Quebec when lo and behold he broke a spring, then he noticed a big old bolt in one of the tires. So off he goes to see if the tire can be patched, which it couldn't, so $200 later he has a new tire put on the truck. Now I'm waiting to see how much the spring repair bill will be. We've had that done twice before, and I'm sure it will be close to four-digits if not over. Sigh.

On the plus side, I am a totaly geeky tomboy...

Watching it now, waiting for my hamburgers to cook, then I'm gonna knit. Thank goodness for Knit Nite tomorrow night -- I need a pick-me-up.

Happy knitting!

It seems like once something goes wrong, several things go wrong in a day. It never fails. I believe now that that is God's way (who whomever one believes in) of leading us to appreciate the days that are great!!

I've been fielding the question, Are you ok? and the statement, Boy do you look tired! for the past three days. Even DH emailed me today to ask me if everything was fine.....I am fine, I am just exhausted because school is sucking the life out of me and I don't even have energy to knit!!

SO...there is my whining and ranting. I am off to make supper and dream about my laptop getting fixed really soon.....

You'll have a better day tomorrow!

I had one of those days on Monday... not quite as expensive, but still not fun (car wouldn't start) - threw a wrench in the whole day... hope the rest of the week is better for you!
