Damage control.

I seriously under estimated the power of NO. I guess I was just born to be a "Yes please," and "Thank you" person. I have been trying to tell myself over and over I am done with apologizing for just about anything in general. I was doing really good too. I guess that's not in my nature, because I just became a book in the Lemony Snickets Series of Unfortunate Events. And yes. It was that surreal.

I keep getting blubbery just thinking about the silly nature of what has happened and will of course follow because of choices I made. I know I should be thankful for everyone, and everything in my life so far, but I am questioning the "why".

It seems I must have really pissed off someone. I don't want to think that it's God. I know He is forgiving and I am not a bad person. I just don't get it.

Before I proceed I wanted to share a song that I love and summarizes how I feel right now. It's not the actual video, but it combines some of my favorite things. Oh, look I made an unintentional funny "These are a few of my favorite things."

Now what could possibly make me so sad? Everyone has their beliefs. I believe in positive creates positive. I try to avoid negative things. I am not very good at this by the way. I just like people in general. I will always be this way so I am probably going to repeat this post in a year to come. Thank you GreenDay for Walking Contridiction.

I also believe in Angels and Demons, good vs evil, things come back to you three fold, and watch what you say, and/or wish for.

Back to what did I do to deserve this punishment. I do not know. I am sorry. I am at a loss.

My day in brief:

Meet for an appointment which I can't talk about. Hmm. Maybe that's the problem.
Have my purse stolen with nearly everything in it just after the appt.
Sitting in the WPD to file a stolen purse report knowing that whoever has it now knows where I live AND has my house key...Yippeeee!
Stew the fact that I live in a city where the ratio of good to bad is possibly 75% good. I am being generous.
Love my Mom for just being there with me through it all very patiently, and for being my brains while I freaked out.

I am leaving some stuff out. Yes there was more to the day, but this Duck can only take one punch at a time.

You know what gets me really bent? They walked away with 3 dollars and maybe some change at the bottom. I do not carry cash on a regular basis. Don't worry too much. I called the bank (Thanks Mom) right away.

FYI: this is not the first time something was stolen from me. I actually have my other license from when my wallet was swiped last year. One less thing to recover.

I feel better now that I just laid it all out. If I have done you wrong, annoyed you, pissed you off, or in general just made you indifferent....I am sorry.

I am going to post this and then listen to Savin me again.


  1. i'm really sorry your having a rough day! sending you all the good vibes i can!! and i hoping they catch the numbnuts that stole your purse. what an asshole!!

  2. Lyn, I'm so sorry! I hope things get better for you. I'm lucky in that I've never had a purse stolen or my house broken into or anything like that. But I really hope you feel better and know that it's just some idiot. It's not because of anything you did!

  3. Are you just assuming someone is upset with you because something bad happened? Or was there a connection? That's where you lost me.

    In any case I hope things brighten up on your end!!

    My friends always say, if they lose something or have something stolen: "That's okay, I know someone must have needed it more than me."

    Sometimes it helps. Sometimes I think they're bonkers. And so it goes.

  4. Hi all. Thank you for cheering me up. I am much better today. Shawna I was very upset when I wrote the post. I have had many bad things happen to me over the past year, and I just snapped. I felt like the world was out to get me. I know thats just silly. I still am really pissed off about my purse though. And freaked out that they have my house key and my address(license). I live in CT and home invasions have been on the rise. I worry too much huh?
