No unlucky Friday the 13th black cats for Graydon, only Happy Welcome Money and Good Fortune Cat

No unlucky Friday the 13th black cats for Graydon, only Happy Welcome Money and Good Fortune Cat

Wow, it seems like only last month I was whingeing on about Friday the 13th—it was! One lousy month ago I was pretty upbeat about getting through the day unscathed, but now I see the true evil—it’s what’s sandwiched in between two Friday the thirteenths when they’re only a month apart!!! And it’s a 28-day cycle. And I saw the full moon yesterday morning at 5 a.m. and this morning again at 5 a.m. And, it’s THAT time of the month. (TMI? sorry.) And I’m rocking a sore throat that has robbed me of my dulcet tones for the last three days—kids, coworkers, puppy rejoice—and I’m in a high cycle of insomnia, as is Tessa, my 17-year-old. The car died and cost a fortune between those two Fridays. The fridge broke. Graydon was turfed from school and residence. Fish died (don’t tell anyone). 

 

So I’m taking the backroads home tonight. Making dinner that doesn’t involve the stove (or it’ll break too). Taking Nyquil, zipping my lips shut and watching TV. Tomorrow morning is a new day. The 14th.
