However I have offended thee. I apologize. Clearly I have upset the universe with my discourse on how I don’t believe. I’m coming around. Quickly!
April is always an insane month for me. With Passover, Easter, I have to file my taxes (if I haven’t been on top of it sooner), and Rebuilding Together taking most of my focus along side all of these other important things. I don’t have a second to spare.
So when other things try to vie for my attention in April, they usually have to wait. Unless it forces its way in.
I do what I can to keep peace in my world. I am a good person. I have a healthy self-esteem, so I don’t say this flippantly or as a fishing expedition. I do a lot of community service and make as many charitable contributions as my budget allows.
What ticks me off is when I get greedy and it turns around and bites me in the arse. I’m getting a $280 tax refund, I can get a new weed eater. Oh nooooo. What do I do instead? I break out my rear windshield when I put the mower in the back of my car.
I’ll give you 1 guess how much a new windshield costs. Did you say $280? So close! $275. Just enough leftover to buy myself a beer to cry into. Oh well.
Neither Coe or I are going without dinner tonight or any other night. We live a good life. I can laugh at what frustrations life throws my way. Really, what’s the alternative. Crying. That’s a waste. Shake it off and find some humor in it.
Here’s the good giggle I share with you over this experience. I live on a busy street. So picture driving by during your commute home and seeing someone vacuuming their driveway.
