my grandmother tried her best to instill every superstition known to man in me before she departed this life many many years ago.

i used to cringe at the thought of friday the 13th. i would avoid going out at all costs. imprisoned in my own house fearing one foot outside my door was sure to end in a trip to the emergency room.  

those feelings are long gone. so when i got up this morning to start my day i didn’t give today’s date a second thought. but after the unlucky streak i’ve had so far today, i’m going to seriously have to re-think this ominous day.

first off, i head to the store to purchase my new tv. the one the utility company is paying for since a power surge a few weeks back killed my old one. the sales guy wheels it out and stuffs it in the back of my mid-size sedan.

i get home and have to break into the box, dismantle the tv and literally drag it into the house. thank goodness nothing broke - not as far as i can tell anyway.

then i head out to run a few more errands. i decide to check the mailbox before i leave. i placed two letters in there earlier this morning and i notice the flag is no longer upright.

to my surprise, i have three letters from various bill collectors and the same two letters i placed in the box earlier.

the mailman was nice enough to right on them postage please!  i forgot the freakin' stamps!

as i get back in the car cursing under my breath, i pull out of the drive way. *clink *clink *thud! what in the heck was that?

i stop the car in the middle of the street and start searching around for where the noise came from. then i see the scratches and the noise maker.

it’s the butcher’s knife i used to rip my tv box to shreds. i left it on top of my car. now my car is scratched and the tip of the knife broke off during it’s plummet to earth.

i managed to finish the rest of my errands but i don’t think i’ll be heading out of the house again until after midnight!

    • ohhhhAwwwww sorry about your day, but I wouldn’t associate this date with all of the mishaps. I truly have never believed in superstitions.

    • I think many times when we are taught  these things, we get them so in our minds we make things happen.

      We believe that it’s a bad day, like a black cat walking in your path, or hats on the bed etc, that we wait for things to happen.

      Hope that makes sense.

      Sorry so much went wrong today... it can only get better! heart

    • thanks ladies! I’m taking it all like a true champ. i know it didn’t have anything to do with the date. it was just one of those days.

      so here i sit anxiously awaiting another start all over again. life IS good happy
