i had several fails today. i tell myself these things happen to keep me humble… or something like that. i’m hoping for some good quality to come that would make all these sorts of moments somehow worthwhile.
if you follow me on twitter or we’re friends on facebook then you already know the first — i learned the hard way that a certain favorite place of mine doesn’t accept returns on sale items. i somehow missed the sentence in bold stating that.
now i’m stuck with two of the same dresses in different colors.
after a rather strangely long workday i arrived home to my first letter from the IRS. ohboy. i didn’t quite understand what they were saying at first and then suddenly my heart skipped a beat. my quarterly taxes? they weren’t due until july, right? WRONG. yup, my taxes are late.
after all this i decided that a nice leisurely stroll was in order to enjoy this fine summer evening in an attempt to loosen my somewhat tense shoulders from all this silly nonsense, which really is not a big enough deal to cause tense shoulders, but somehow has. nobody told me that the flies are horrendous at 8pm this time of year. and nobody told me that they go insanely crazy when in contact with Redken products. i spent the entire 30 minutes swatting at flies buzzing into my head every few minutes which probably amused every single bored neighbor sitting in their living room just waiting for something to entertain.
summer evening stroll that was supposed to be relaxing? not so much.
the good news is that there’s not that much time before i’ll succumb to sleep. at least that doesn’t generally result in a fail.
this is good news.
