Worry, Worry, Worry
The other day I was driving to get my taxes done and heard this song on the radio - I almost drove off the road, because apparently Rick Fines lives in my head:
You were born in the house of guilt
You’ve been worried all your time
You stay worried all the time
I wish there were some way
That I could ease your mind
You can barely get to sleep at night
Over some little thing you said
Some little thing you said
You worry was misread
But it keeps racin’
Round and round your head
The song ("Half-full Cup") now lives on my iPod, where hopefully I will learn to go a bit easier on myself while listening to it.
So I had that wonderful customer service moment the other day about my broken riding helmet (I didn't land on my head or anything - a screw came loose on the inside, where the strap is attached to the shell of the helmet, I'm thinking it was a manufacturing defect) and now my new helmet is in the mail. But what if I told them to send size Large instead of Medium? I have a freakishly large head, the size isn't on the label, and I can't remember... What if I have to return it cause it's too big? Will that be a hassle, or what?
These, oh faithful readers, are the thoughts that go round and round my head. Scintillating, no?
On the plus side, I went to the doctor today and got some lovely medicine for the sinus infection that has been bugging me all week (Hello! I'm on vacation! Come on in, nasty infections!), and I still have more time off. To do my marking, you know. Also, I have a good friend coming to visit over the weekend, and plans with other friends too.
