about a month ago, i pulled a painting out of clearance and hung it in my office. big, broad brush strokes of purple and teal and grey swirling around a raven. i liked it. i liked the colors and the pattern and i liked that it fit perfectly on the empty wall in my office.
then, bits of my life started to go to a dark place. the girl i hired fell through. staff started acting up. lots of service issues. the air conditioner leaked and ruined a sofa. i threw out my back and my inventory went south.
yesterday, as i waited for the entourage to arrive at the store, i took a look at the painting, leaned forward in my seat and fell flat on the floor.
i think all the bad luck was the raven’s fault. i promptly took it off the wall and hid it in the stockroom.
visit went fine. today was an awesome day. good things happening to lots of people i know and love.
i blame the raven.
tomorrow, i’m going to write it out as damaged and burn it in the parking lot.
then, i’m going to buy a lottery ticket.

girls come home tonight
it looks like it might rain.
seriously, if it rains and/or wonderdad comes home with a kitten, (this is california, so they’re equally unlikely), this will be the BEST DAY EVER!
it’s days like this, after 68 hours and 6 days in a row at work, after having a hugely successful walkthrough and review with my boss and his boss and his boss’ boss that i really wish i could call my mom and tell her the story and have her tell me that i work too much.
i’d get mad that she didn’t understand what i was telling her but then in a few days, i’d find a card in my mailbox (either hoops & yoyo or a cat with a tiara) telling me how proud she is and that she loves me. ”love, momma”
i hate days like this.
