Yesterday was just one of those days. I started the day with a healthy to-do list, but ran stuck on nearly every single task. No paper for the printer, couldn't find any tape for wrapping gifts, excessively needy kids, etc. The only thing I managed to get done without hang-up was clean the bathrooms. Yee-ha.
Then I somehow managed to do this to my beloved Kitchen Aid blender:
Shortly after that, the handle on the microwave broke.
I left to run some errands in hopes of being able to make more progress on my list. My first stop was Fabricland where I learned that the store was going to be closing March 31, 2010. Whhhhaaaaaat?!?!?! I do have a love/hate relationship with Fabricland, but this is really bad news. It sent me into such a tailspin that I was largely unsuccessful at finishing the rest of my errands.
Now, I know people that are experiencing real and legitimate crises, so I'm trying to keep this in perspective, but it does make me very sad. I did sign a petition at the store to keep it open and was given the email address of someone at the head office. I haven't sent an email yet, but I will - probably more than once. I was in a hurry and didn't ask a lot of questions, but it sounds like there is some uncertainty about the real reason for the closure.
Today is going much better...but still too much on the to-do list...
