~Living a life of sophisticated domestication deep in the heart of Texas~

I'm pretty sure....

...that it's not just me.

Have you ever made plans for something and been really looking forward to "it," only for those plans to fall by the wayside because what was on the other end of the plan-making fell through?  Or, maybe I could make that "WHO" was on the other end..yada yada.  

I dunno, but I do find it, shall I say, "unfortunate" to have that happen.  It makes me discouraged and dismayed that I can look forward to some event or process and be enthused (there's an old word) about it, and then have it go all to bits.

For example:  

Our wedding was supposed to be at the park, outdoors.  Big storm.  It all turned out all right, because we had a reception venue, so we combined it all and people got a little surprise prelude to their cake and music.

A holiday get-together road trip.  Fell apart because the person on the other end flaked out.  Still a bit ticked off about that.

Date for me to make the move to Texas:  Multiple postponements.  We're both still a bit ticked about that.  I'm here now, though, and we had a wonderful road trip.

Job stuff:  Crapola.  People being hind-ends of horses.  What to do?!  Pick up and try again.  And again.

Other stuff:  People don't follow through, say what they mean and life has hairpin curves and U-turns, etc.

Last night I was griping and SGTex suggested I look on the bright side and see the positive.  That's what I'm going to do after I get over my little rant-fest.  I know I can't be the only one who feels this way.  

Generally, I put on a pretty good Pollyanna-ish attitude face and act like everything is just fine.  I'm famous for the "Just fine" answer when asked, "How are you, Shawnie?"  People don't much ask any more.  Except SGTex.  He asks.  

And thanks ever so much, Goddess, for that.
