HOW TO PULL YOURSELF OUT OF A FUNK
Go Shopping for Greeting Cards!
I was balancing my cheek book and feeling slightly ill. It had been raining all day. My hair was ruined at 630 am. One of the Smart Aleck's has taken another job and will be leaving us. I find I still want to run my daughters life. She hung up on me, rightly so.
It was in this state that I dragged into Walmart with the hopes to find Indian Candy Corn. It is that time of year. The only time of year the stores have that heavenly chocolate delicacy.
Suddenly I was momentarily blinded. A vivid glitter-glow, all luminous and shiny with a thousand hues of orange, the brand new card section screaming HALLOWEEN at me!
My mood immediately lifted as I picked out cards for my rotten daughter, my best bud, my good friend in Lexington, my Senior pen pal, my long lost friend in Louisville, the crew I left behind, and my Mom!!
I also found the candy!!
