dusty pages

Last night I had a dream about you. To be accurate - it was more of a nightmare. I woke up sobbing and feeling so lost and betrayed and it took me a few minutes to make sense of the confusion I felt when I first woke.

Honestly, I'm still kind of confused. Because I really don't know what brought it on.

I don't know why you were in my dream as you have long since become only a faded chapter of a book I once read...and yet there you were making me feel so hurt and abandoned once again.

Weird. Unsettling.

I'm not the type to wish for things in the past to change. For one thing, it's silly and pointless, and for another thing I know that without the past I probably wouldn't be where I am now, which is somewhere I like very much. But this morning when I woke up I wish the part of my life you were written on was a dry erase board and someone would hand me a wet cloth.

Luckily I was able to snuggle up against my hubby and go back to sleep, this time it was a peaceful sleep.

a protest i can get behind

As I was driving to pick Paul up from his downtown San Francisco office today, I noticed a protest off in the distance. I was getting prepared to sigh and roll my eyes when I pulled closer and noticed a big sign that read: NO CARD CHECK. There were an assortment of other signs saying things like "preserve the secret ballot" and I wish I had my camera because I was honestly shocked.

I honked, waved and gave them all a big thumbs up and they waved and smiled back at me.

When I collected my husband I told him what I was seen and he was confused for a moment, wait they were protesting against card check? In San Francisco?

See, there is still some common sense left in this beautiful city!

dealing with customer service...aka death by a thousand cuts

Argh! I just spent five hours of my Friday afternoon waiting at home for a package that FedEx just decided to update the delivery date for. So it actually won't be coming until Monday.

This is all especially irritating because due to the fact that I knew the address had been corrected from the original (my mistake, I accidentally gave my parents' zip code), I called customer service this afternoon to make sure the change had been processed. I was assured that it had been and that the package was out for delivery today. So I bailed out on drinks with coworkers (and then opted not to meet up with Paul and his friends) so I could stay home and wait for the package. Of course when I called with 15 minutes left to go during the delivery window I was told, oops, since the change wasn't processed until today, the package actually wouldn't be delivered til Monday, and uh, oh now the online tracking has been updated too. Is there anything else I can help you with?

You'd think that in this economy companies could hire people who aren't untrained idiots to work in customer service...Neither of the people I spoke with seemed to know how to use the system to properly track the changes. Annoying.

somebody stop me

I've been writing posts the last few days and then deleting them without hitting publish. There hasn't been any one single topic, just a general catalog of how sucky I've been feeling.

Let's face it, I don't really have a right to feel as crappy as I do. I am so lucky and blessed and should just be thankful for what I've got instead of sulking and spending large chunks of my day navel-gazing and over-thinking things to the point of unhappiness.

If someone were to ask me what's wrong I'd be hard pressed to find an answer that didn't make me sound like a spoiled, ungrateful little brat.

Hopefully recognizing how stupidly negative I'm being is the first step towards contentment.

there's a light at the end of this tunnel
