I just purchased my ticket to see Marianne Williamson in January! I must be insane. I’ve spent so much on her. ROFL. Between the New Year Eve retreat and this. Ahh! Insanity. I’m kind of bummed that the reserved ticket doesn’t have a particular seat. There are only 100 reserved tickets available. So I guess no one with a reserved seat will have a bad seat.
After 3 days of silence, the dog trainer finally responded to my email. My dog’s training will be on November 24 (the day after Thanksgiving) and December 1 at 5PM. If I have to drive somewhere, I’m not crazy about the time. That’s rush hour traffic. I would have preferred 4PM, but whatever. I thought she said we were going to meet somewhere during the consultation, but she didn’t mention that in the email so maybe she is coming to my house.
I would say I’m glad she responded, but I was finally accepting that it wasn’t going to happen. I was happy. I don’t have to pay $200?? Score! But then I got the email. I thought this was the way of the universe saying the training wasn’t going to work and don’t even bother. Now I just hope it works. It better!
I bought some items for gift exchange day (AKA December 25th). I usually try to finish by November 1, but I’m in no rush this year. I’m just glad I got started. I don’t have to do anything for Thanksgiving because I don’t acknowledge it. I write what I’m grateful for daily in my planner, so I don’t need a special day for it. Yes, I’m eating alone on that day. Well, my dog will be there staring at my face. Can’t forget about him. 😉
HOW CAN I FORGET ABOUT HIM WHEN HE IS COSTING ME $200. No, I’m not mad.
What I am mad about is the school kids at the damn park. Please go away. I can’t stand it. What is going on? Who had the bright idea of bringing kids to the park in November? Yes, last November was warm. But this year hasn’t been warm. Well, today was 65 degrees, but one day when the kids were there, it was only 34 degrees!! I didn’t care about the cold when I was a kid. Maybe that is how most kids are. I have no idea.
Anyway, they have been there 4 days out of 5. They block my only entrance to the park. The first day was a disaster. My dog started barking at the kids. The kids started barking back at my dog, and the adults didn’t tell the kids to stop! One girl screamed in his face like she was in a horror film. WTF? Go back to school. Lol. I don’t even care much about that. I just don’t like passing crowds of people. I can’t wait for the field trips to go away.
I just want to enjoy my walks at the park with my dog. What a concept! This too shall pass. I hate having to pass crowds. If it were like that every day, I would change the time I go to the park.
This week I…
