One of those days…

Did you ever have one of those days?  The kind when the universe appears to be conspiring to give you a lesson in patience?  Had one today.

Sundays are not my favorite day to work, but sometimes it just can’t be avoided.  A scheduling snafu with the floor finishers meant I had to leave the model home before I could complete my work on Saturday and return on Sunday to finish a Soccer mural.  OK, I can do that.  Cut to map quest sending me on a wild goose chase and, once at the site, a ride on the struggle bus trying to get the drawing correct. (Most likely due to poly fumes from freshly finished floors.)  But I carried on and fought my way through!  Tired and happy to be done, I begin to drag all of my equipment down the stairs to load up my car.  As I exit the home, I notice that the opening in the chain link fence surrounding the development where I entered in the morning has disappeared and has been pad locked shut.  Yes, I am locked IN and the only way out is over.  Try as I might,  I couldn’t see how I was going to get my 40lb. 3 tiered tool box on rollers and my 6′ ladder over that 6′ fence.  A trek through the dirt and gravel of the construction site turned up no alternate exit and so I was forced to abandon my gear and make the treacherous climb over the wobbliest chain link fence I have ever encountered.  I am sure it was quite a sight that will, given my luck today, wind up on youtube.

Ready and waiting for my 15 minutes of fame 😀
