Okay, now that weeklong rollercoaster ride is over. I terminated my agreement with her. I handled myself with dignity. Although I was seething, I did not take the low road. I still have to decide how to handle the situation with The MerryNewlywed. Yea, accidents happen, but this woman wasn't even contrite. Oh well.
This was not in the cards for me at this time. I don't know why and I may never know exactly why. I did my part and my instincts about it being a great value were right on. So there is that. Perhaps the next time through the ringer will be less stressful and anxiety producing.
And Karen is absolutely right. I felt EXACTLY the same when pre-purchase of MalibuKen. I probably need to spend a little recovery time on this particular issue. Although I do know what's going on and I did choose to take action anyway, so there is that.
This I Believe: We do what we can and believe that things work out just the way they are supposed to, exactly when they are supposed to. I am really okay with this - it's almost comical! Who does this happen to? Seriously - I've always known I'm special ;-)
So to end this on a lighter note, I bring you BIRDS DO IT - a post from June 2009. For those who are new here, I used to live in a rural area with a big garden that I took pretty seriously.
But apparently the bees have stopped doing it. Or more precisely, have stopped doing it in the squash. Bick first reported the problem a few days ago. After snooping around the internets and watching some plant porn, it was deemed that I must boost the sex life of the summer squash. I am now acting as Viagra for Vegetables. I tried last night, but the squash were too tired and had a headache. Perhaps they prefer mornings?
So this morning, I put on my best push-up bra, my vacation panties, threw on my summer robe and my f*ck-me Crocs, snapped on some latex (gloves) and went out to entice the squash into reproducing. I did my best (bean) pole dance. We'll know if there was a happy ending in about three days. The things I do for organic produce. Sheesh.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Sometimes you just have to laugh.
