No, really. No sarcasm there. (Okay maybe a bit.) But really.
DAY SIXTEEN. Life’s funny that way, you know? One day you were saying with pride and conviction that you’re learning to create the habit of “seeing the little joys that come with everydays,” and then, the very next day, life plays a cruel joke on you and gives you the worst day ever.
What is this? Some sort of a test to see if I really mean what I say? Bring it on!
I wouldn’t want to give you a blow-by-blow of today’s series of unfortunate accidents, let’s just say it involved around 7 hours of traffic (for real!), rain, flood, a lot of waiting, a stupid lawyer, a cab that ran out of gas (for. real.), and coming home after a looong tiring day, hoping to dive into my bed only to realize that, oh yeah, I don’t have one.
On the floor, with my laptop, and my book (and my handy dandy book light).
Bed? What bed? Who you?
Yep, I’ve been sleeping either in the couch or on the floor the whole week ever since the airbed I’ve been sleeping on for almost a year decided it’s time to pop for good. The couch is pretty comfortable, really, but the air con is in the bed room, so every night I’d weigh which is a better option — to wake up sweaty or to wake up with back pains.
Uhuh — I was pretty good dealing with it huh. I have not ranted about not having a bed the whole week, instead, I talked about book lights, and happy furniture, and yellows and cupcakes! Proud of me? LOL. I may have the worst of days, but the theme of the month is “awesome”, and I decided that I will not allow anything get in the way of that. Not even this day.
I’d be a hypocrite if I bragged about how gracefully I handled the ordeals I had to face today — I was nowhere near graceful at all. I whined, I complained, I threw a fit. If I blogged this earlier, I would have ranted like crazy! But I was able to breathe already, so now, I’m just glad that the day is over.
And tomorrow.. well, tomorrow, a new mattress is going to be delivered to me *big grin* (I’m done with airbeds, I’m ready to invest on a real bed now, thankyouverymuch), and maybe in a few weeks, I’ll be able to get a real bed frame as well. So yay, I do have something to look forward to.
“Tomorrows are the best part of everydays,” I read from somewhere. And so I quote, for lack of better ways to end this post. :)
Good night, cruel world. :)
30 Days of Awesome, 16/30.
