I woke up today a bit confused – all because it is December and it feels like it is April.
I want December type weather! I want to be able to crank my oven on without feeling like I am in the oven. That’s no bueno! Take this week’s forecasted highs, for example: Today 83. Tomorrow 74. Thurs 68. Fri 83. Sat 87. Sun 58. Crazy, I KNOW!!
I’ll spare you the rant that is going thru my head right now because … that’s how nice I am.
Speaking of being nice. Have you done any nice deeds as of late?
Today, I had to
return exchange an item I bought last week at le Hobby Lobby. Going there is really like going thru an obstacle course when you consider the season we are in. A total mad house! Seriously, is it really necessary to keep half the registers closed?
Anyway, I got in the “Return & Exchange” line which, happened to have a customer who was not exchanging or returning item(s) ? There I am, with my one, yes one item to be exchanged. There they were, with their 100-ish items for purchase! Purchase, people. It did not help that my Fibromyalgia has been in full swing active mode along with a ridiculous dry cough that I have now named Joey since it seems to be a permanent feature these days. It took every ounce of remaining energy to keep myself composed during this long wait. I could’ve complained and given my stink eye to everyone in that store especially the said customer. I could have asked for my receipt and item to be handed back to me and just gone back on another day to exchange it but I
needed it wanted it now! And being the stubborn person that my mother created, I waited. With a smile. A sincere one at that! At the end of it all, the customer felt really, really bad about the situation and apologized several times throughout the wait.
So yeah, not blowing up was one of my nice deeds today 🙂
The other is this:
