Do you know the feeling when you’ve got something planned out and are looking forward to it and then at the last minute something goes wrong?
Well, my friend and I had this weekend planned forever, Western camp with friends in the middle of nowhere. I took 2 days off work and we were supposed to go today and learned yesterday that it wasn’t going to happen.
It’s not a big thing, totally insignificant really in the face of political crises and natural disasters like the BP oil spill. Except that it is, it’s a big thing to me. I had been looking forward to it so so much for such a long time and I can’t help but feel extremely disappointed.
I don’t usually write melancholy posts but that just had to get out.
And to at least end this with something pretty:

I guess we’ll figure something out, we always do.

    I hate when that happens, but it seems like there’s usually an unknown reason for it all. I think about times I’ve been delayed and not able to get out the door in time. I find out that if I had been on time, I would have been in an accident. The most recent example was I was talking to my friend who’s husband was let go from his job last year, just a year before he turns 62 (and can receive social security). They were so upset, didn’t know what they were going to do. Anyway, yesterday she told me that him losing his job has saved his life! They are ok financially and he’s feeling better than he ever has! I know that’s a bit drastic of an example, but I really believe there is a reason for everything. I hate to be disappointed. Maybe this weekend you can do something else you’ve wanted to do but never seemed to have time for. Sending my good thoughts to you.

      Thanks Lynda 🙂 You’re right, that’s definitely the best way to look at it! I’m feeling a bit better about it all already. We’re just finalizing plans to do something fun in the next 3 days and while it’s not going to be the quiet, relaxing weekend that I was looking forward to so much, I think it will be good.
      Loved the story about your friend’s husband, I hope he continues to do so great!
      I’ll be back in this place sometime next week to let y’all know how my weekend turned out 😉

    I know that kind of feelings. They put you in a very weird mood, but always the things can be better or worse.
    But when that kind of situations happens I think it is because something great is comming for you 🙂

      Definitely, things like that can really put you down but like you say, something good often comes of it. I had a wonderful weekend in the end and I am glad things turned out the way they did!
