Sorry for being quiet this past week. It’s been a fairly crazy one…
First I thought I had “won” a neat holiday package deal for 4 to go to Florida and got so very excited. A couple of days later I wanted to show it to my friends and came across a number of complaints about this resort because of lots of hidden fees. Shock!
At first I thought I was stuck with it. When I dived into it, I saw to my relieve I was able to cancel it within 7 days. So I got immediately on the phone, asking straight questions about additional fees and it turned out to be true. With some difficulty (boy, those people are a drag!!!) I got it cancelled.
I felt totally stupid. I never enter in such things, why I did now I have no idea. After all, I know that what seems too good to be true usually is. Oh well.
The next day I met with a very nice lady who is gonna help me find a voluntary job that fits me. It is so exciting to have someone to help me as I hadn’t gotten very far on my own.
And truth be told, I am soooo ready to do something outside of the house. And I am excited that after 5 years I have finally reached the point where I am ready to embark on the journey to return to the work force.
That same day a window popped up on my computer looking like my anti-virus telling me I was under threat. I pushed a button to deal with it and boy, did I get myself into big trouble.
You see, in the back of my mind I was already doubting this holiday package deal, waiting for the other shoe to drop. So my first thought was: ‘see, here we go…’
Please, learn from me: Never, ever do this!! Click it away and let your own anti-virus run to check your computer. The only way to deal with the fall out was to re-install everything – costing me quite some money. Argh!
The next day I had a funeral of a 91-year old mother of a friend. It was a beautiful service. The morning had looked promising with a watery sunshine, but in the meantime a storm was brewing and the wind had become icy cold.
The next day I felt all my sinuses and had a nasty headache.
The next day I thankfully did feel better, since I had youth group that evening. But I have slipped in a depressed mood after a good talk with my counselor the day before, working thru some stuff. We had a good evening, though and as usual I enjoyed spending time with them.
The only drawback is that it takes so much more energy out of me when I get into those funky moods. Oh well. I can live with that, cuz it’s so totally worth it.
So that was my week, being all over the place, literally and figuratively. How was yours?
