Today was NOT my day!
I went to Walmart at 4:30 this morning. It was PACKED full of people. I don’t mind that typically on Black Friday. However, I was quite stressed that they had everything on sale in odd places in the store. The cricut was in electronics, tvs were in crafts and toys, the princess Barbie was in automotive, the jackets were spread all over the store, etc. I went back and forth and found practically everything I wanted but not everything. I wanted to get to JoAnn’s at 6:00, but I waited in line for over 1 ½ hours!!! Right when I got up to the checkout, one of the cashiers had a problem. But she could not take care of it, she had to call my cashier to come help. So I waited and waited while other people just kept passing me at the other checkout line. OK finally my turn! She rings me up and my credit card is denied. It’s the end of the month and I have no money in the bank. I have absolutely no other way to get this stuff! So I have to leave it there and walk out. Later, I vaguely remembered replacing my Sam’s card. It was taking so long for them to get the card to me that I said, “don’t sign me up for the credit card, we don’t use credit cards anyway”. Hmmm…no wonder it was denied, I never re-set it up.
So I headed out of there empty handed trying so hard not to cry, but unsuccessful and went to JoAnn’s. Luckily they still had the $35 Christmas tree I wanted. I had a little bit of cash on me, so I bought the tree and some fabric.
Then I went with my friend to Target. One of the sales clerks was trying to get something off a top shelf for someone else. Well it fell! ON ME! A heavy box came tumbling down on my head and then the corner of the box hit my arm. I was quite shocked! It made me dizzy. This happened before noon and it still hurts.
Then I came home and had to vacuum the entire house because of the little flea problem we had. As I was vacuuming, the vacuum got stuck on my bedspread. I quickly turned it off, but somehow I tripped and fell. I twisted and caught myself, but now my hip hurts.
So I think I just need to go to bed!
