In honor of this (almost) full moon Monday, I’m writing about another full-moon Monday I experienced recently. And it was one of those kinds of days.
I woke up happy and feeling good about what I would accomplish. I did a few small chores around my place before I sat down to write for the day.
Going through some mail, I see a bright pink notice of service termination from People’s Gas for tomorrow. That’s odd; I have automatic payment set up so it can’t be because of payments. I call People’s Gas and a half hour later, we sort it all out. Bottom line: Someone accidentally closed my account and then re-opened it, all unbeknown to me.
On to my morning . . . Ah, time to write. The sounds of Yo-Yo Ma’s cello playing in the background, my steaming mug of tea, and I’m ready to go. Except for the phone rings. I have a delivery of new furniture. Awesome. The guys bring up my new beautiful silver embossed dresser. Ah, so pretty . . . and so broken. The back leg is broken off. Dang! Back it goes.
Two more deliveries for the day. I start to worry a bit. So far, things are not going so well today. Could it be because of the full moon? Mercury in retrograde? Is all that stuff true? Um, I have my first writing class tonight . . . I am starting to not feel so good about it.
The phone interrupts my thoughts. Delivery number two: My new vanity is delivered . . . to the loading dock. They won’t bring it up. It’s another special delivery fee if they do. Ok, so why did we even schedule a delivery if you’re just dropping it off? Fine, I’ll bring it up. What? Where is it? Oh it’s in this box. A small, thin box. Are you sure? Yes. It needs to be assembled. Grrr!
Delivery number three: My new floor mirror. Again, not bringing it up. It’s on the loading dock. Ok, I’ll figure out how to get that up too. Good god, what if the mirror is broken? I don’t need seven more years of this!
Then, I just laughed because, really, what else could I do? Sure, it’s one of those days when I want to crawl under the covers and wait for the day to be over. But that’s not an option today. I needed a little shift in my perspective or a dose of humor. If you’ve ever had days like this, then you know what I mean.
So, here’s a little something to make me laugh and shift the energy of my day . . . hope it does the same for you when you need it on one of those Monday mornings.
Happy full-moon Monday!
