My Terrible Tuesday


I woke up in a good mood, praised the Lord as I walked to the bus stop, marveling at the sky with the dark clouds covering spots of blue where the sun shone through.

I got on the bus and there was water on the floor where I usually sit so I went to the other side. But when I got up, I noticed my pants were all wet! The seat was wet but I couldn’t tell because it had the cloth covering. When I got to work, I put a plastic bag on my chair to sit on so I wouldn’t get my chair all wet from my pants. It was not good.

When I left work to go for my radiation treatment, I waited and waited . . . and waited for the bus to come and it never did. I decided if it didn’t come in time for me to get home in time to get to my radiation appointment, I’d have to call a cab. Fortunately, I had the number in my cell phone. After waiting for 40 minutes without my bus arriving, I called the cab and got home at my usual time, but it cost me $35! It only took 20 minutes, half the time the bus takes, but $35? Whoa! When I got back from my radiation, I put in the number of my radiation oncologist so if it happened again, I could just call and let them know I’d be late or skip that day. It better not happen again though.

When I got back from voting after my radiation treatment, I found the paper torn up in the dining room from the pizza box ready to be tossed out that I had on the kitchen floor. Abby got into a little bit of mischief while I was gone. Guess I'll be putting it on the counter top from now on. Also, sad to say the Casino issue passed which I voted against.

To top off the day, I went to a special meeting at church that the Pastor called that dealt with a “sensitive topic.” We got a call and email the day before asking the congregation to come if we could. It was very sad to hear that our youth Pastor who has done such a great job with the youth was relieved of his duties for good reason. I felt a bit responsible for not holding him up in prayer more when I knew he had to be experiencing some burn out after the very hectic summer with the youth group.

I was glad to see this day end! I looked forward to Wednesday and hoped for a better day! It was!

Sorry you had a yucky day. Usually that means the next day will be extra good.

Ouch on the cab fare! Karen, I'm so sorry you had such a bad day. I sure hope the rest of your week looked better.

What a day. I can only say it is days like the one you had that make us appreciate the peaceful ones even more.
I'm so very sorry to hear the information about your youth pastor. I think of all the things that happened that day that must have been the most upsetting.

Too bad about the youth pastor :(
That bus/cab thing STINKS! I'm glad you are organized enough to still make it to your appt on time.

Abby is super cute--tough to be mad at that face, huh?
