MIA

Greetings to all my dear friends, those I have met and those I still have yet to.......

Sorry I have not written in a few days, but I must admit I have not been feeling like myself the past few days. My best friend went away with his son to a church outing, a retreat I guess you could say and well, we haven't spoken in days. I feel so lost when we don't talk as he normally is always there.....I have been feeling so alone with out the normal everyday conversations we use to have. Its driving me bonkers! I miss him dearly, but I suppose this trip was good for him and his son. Gotta give him a lot of credit for doing things with his son. I can appreciate any man who is willing to do things with his kid....

I did manage to take my own kids somewhere this past weekend. Friday took all of them to the beach down in Monetery. Packed up a bunch of snacks and headed to the beautiful coastline. It was a really lovely trip as the kids did seem to have a great time chasing the waves. We all got a little wet, but that was OK. Was fun none the less. Although, my car still smells like wet sand...yuck. The air was brisk and the sun was hidden by an array of over casted clouds, but that didn't bother me in the slightest. The sound of the ocean waves hitting the shore is always an uplifting experience. I could spend my life down by the ocean and never get tired of its beauty or the peace it always brings out in me. We stayed a couple of hours then headed back to home. Could have stayed longer I suppose, but did have to get up really early the next day for work. I really hate when life interrupts my play time. I really wish I could do more adventures like that with my kids, but money is tight, gas is tight, the same ole routine. I don't expect that part of my life will change any time soon. I doubt I will win the lottery and doubt my night and shining armor will come rescue me from this dark spot in my life.....this is reality. A girl can dream though.......

Other than feeling so depressed over my sweetie being MIA for awhile, not much else worth writing about. Like my life ever really is.....But I will say this, working in retail some times gives me plenty of topics to write and today was no exception. Today I encountered the customer from hell....well, my supervisor was dealing with it, I was just a witness. Just when you think you've seen it all, there's one who will always act worse than the last one. Today, a woman came in wanting to return her bras to the store. The problem is, since they had no tags on them, they couldn't be returned. Not only a store policy, but a law as well. Apparently that did not sit to well with her. I guess she figured the law didn't apply to her. My supervisor was trying to explain this to her, but every other word from her mouth was F**K this..... was really quite amusing if you ask me. She used it so much that I am surprised Webster hasn't added it to their dictionary yet. I guess all the vocabulary tests in school were for nothing..... She also had a few other items to be returned so my supervisor went to look for similar items since the clothes she was trying to return didn't have tags either....but we were willing to at least give her a refund for those. I tried to ask her if she was being helped when she told me that she was waiting for this F***ing lady to return. I politely said OK. I went to find my supervisor to give her a hand when this lady chases me down and as I was asking my supervisor if she needed help, she yells, I know your tattling on me...and continues her colorful words. All this because of not getting EXACTLY what she wanted. I mean really, stores have their policies and if you don't know them, then its YOUR fault. Of course, when you are working with the public in any customer service field, one must refrain from speaking what is really on their minds..(Man, if only I could)...... I just kind of laughed to myself because she wanted to make a big deal out of nothing. This world has so many problems in it that fighting over stupid details about not getting a few dollers just seems so pointless. Anyway, by the end of that situation, I was ready to end my work day.....thankfully I was able to.

But I still sit here today wanting to talk to my sweetie and I can't. I hate being so far, I hate the time difference, I hate the pain of missing someone so badly, I hate the feeling of being alone, I hate waiting to see if life will turn around for me any time soon........ugh!

But, I will keep my faith today that the clouds will clear and the sun light will once again shine down on me soon. I hope and pray that you all have that peace and light in your life and hope it fills your heart up with warmth and kindness.
