The Universe

Somedays I think the universe is just mocking me - you know playing head games and such. Today was shaping up to be a pretty awful day. It's TTOM for starters, which gives me headaches, sinus problems and insomnia. Didn't have the insomnia part, but check and check on the other two. Got to work this morning and I had forgotten my security fob so had to stand outside the office like a big DORK until one of the executives (why oh why couldn't it be the receptionist or the nice HR lady) comes by and lets me in. Then at lunch time I drop a big ole creamy noodle out of my lean cuisine microwave dinner right onto my satin-like shirt. Yeah, so I went the rest of the day with a palm-sized stain on my shirt that was VERY noticeable.

But then, one very good thing happened - I found out I got a new placement!! I interviewed on Monday and was starting to get nervous since I hadn't heard anything yet. Today my boss got the call though that I start July 1st. What a huge relief. Just before I found out, I was playing on facebook and took one of those silly quizes - this one read my fortune and said that something I was hoping for was going to happen - less than 30 minutes later my boss comes over to tell me.

Of course the day went right on being crappy except for that one huge good thing. My headache persists, I got to go pee in a cup for the new job in a seedy part of town, my mom called to try to weasel her way into coming an extra weekend this summer, the plants I planted over the weekend are threatening to wither and die, and I still have to figure out what to make for dinner.

Reading back over this, I think I have it figured out - The universe is saying, "Quit your whining - you got it pretty darn good girl!" Even after all the annoyances, I have to mark this day in the good column.
