Requisite Whiny Monday Post

So, these things all happened to me today.

  • Got a chip in my windshield driving on the highway to the bulk mail processing center to drop of an appeal letter mailing for my other job (as in, not my church work). The highway is being repaired and there was gravel and a semi kicked a rock into my windshield.
  • Got to bulk mail center. Everything seemed fine, except apparently our non-profit mailing permit had expired. Last week. I can't pay it because I don't have a "company" credit card.
    Cart the mailing back to my car and go back to work.
  • Get stuck behind trash truck emptying recycle bins. Tried to be thankful for recycling, but at this point was not feeling that thankful.
  • Stopped at the green dry cleaner to drop off a couple of shirts. My reasonably new (as in, I've had it all of 3 months) has a tear in it. Must pay extra (not today, but soon) to have it repaired.
  • Fouled up printing several appeal letters that were fouled up the first time. Forgot to put return envelope/reply form in and had to open the envelopes...and thus reprint them. Again.
AMENDED to add: AND, I wrote a blog post in which I left out important details such as the item that had the tear in it that I've had all of three months is: my clerical shirt.

Finally got home. Went for a long walk with my cielo. Fed the duckies. It's a beautiful day here in Denver, and I feel much better now.


  1. Awww, what a sucky Monday! :( But yay for ducks and your cielo and a BEAUTIFUL day. We just got back from a jog and time playing at the park.

  2. Hmmmm....your clerical shirt had a tear. Hmmm........interesting. Something to unpack there!

  3. haha, Eric! It's all that putting it to good use!

  4. I hate days like that...yuck. But, you know, not that I want to jinx it or anything, but the rest of the week HAS to be better, right??

  5. A friend of mine once had a slight 'fender bender' on his way home from collecting a brand new car. In the end, he was fairly philosophical, thinking that at least he didn't have to worry about scratching the car because he'd already done it.

    Perhaps there's a parallel with your clerical shirt!


Howdy and thanks for looking in the window. Glad to have your comments here, just please remember to be kind.
