It appears that the banking scare is over. All the old accounts are closed and new ones opened. I won’t have new cards for a week or so, but that is a minor inconvenience. The worst part is that I still don’t know how it occurred. And I may never know unless the bank choses to clue me in. I’d like to know so I could avoid a repeat.
Other than the set back on time, I’m about ready for the floor guy. He called late yesterday saying that he didn’t quite finish the previous job, so we are back on tomorrow as the starting date.That’s good since I didn’t get nearly enough done with the time spent on the phone and in person at the bank yesterday and today. I have almost enough done to be ready, and by bedtime, it should be OK.
I’m having a little trouble with my attitude today (go figure!). I wasn’t in a bad mood, just kinda flattened with a little “why me?’ thrown in. So I went to my treasure trove of meaningful quotes collected over the years, and I found this:
There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss. -- Alexandre Dumas
And isn’t that the truth? Everything is relative. Placed in a line-up with the events of my life over the last couple years, this is nothing, just an inconvenience. I don’t know that I’ve felt the ultimate despair, but I’ve come pretty close. I’m really looking forward to some of that ultimate bliss. It’s gotta be getting close. This stuff pales in perspective.
And for tomorrow . . . have a happy humpday, everyone!!
