Turn That Frown Upside Down!

Yesterday was a bad day.  A really, really bad day :( 


I took my car in for a regular service visit, which should have been about $200.  Turns out I needed new tires, a transmission flush, an alignment, and on and on....  Also, the dealership has terrible customer service (I didn't buy my car from them...I bought it out of town).  They didn't have a loaner car for me, and so I'm driving your grandpa's car around until they get it together and do what they need to do. 

I had a minor mental breakdown at work yesterday afternoon, but pulled myself together and was ready to face the day today with a smile on my face.  And then something happened that made my stomach turn.  You know the kind of thing I'm talking about.  And I thought "please don't bring my mood down today!!  I'm so excited about my plans for tonight and I want to be happy!!"

And then I got a text from someone special.  Someone asking me to go to lunch next week.  And that made me smile.  And then I got a text from someone saying that they were in court all day, and couldn't stop thinking about the beach.  And that made me smile even more :) 

Somehow those two fabulous texts have completely erased the stomach turning that occurred earlier.  My smile is back, and **hopefully** my car will be delivered to me very soon!  BUT...even if it isn't...I'm going to keep smiling. 

I'm hanging in there, and should have some fun to share tomorrow!

Do I smell a lawyer? Hmm..I hope so, and I hope he's Italian, too. Those are the best!
I hate bad days. Glad to hear things are looking up, Miss T. And even on the worst days, it makes me the happiest to come home to a snuggly furbaby :) I know you agree!
