When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Simply enough, but recently life has been giving me anything as nice a lemons. My sunny disposition has been rained on constantly on by never ending to-do list, bills and unexpected expenses. The new job that I hoped would relieve some of the financial stress hasn’t started, yet. So if life would literally give me some lemons that would be lovely. I would happily make lemonade to sell.
Yesterday as I was coming home from a meeting when I ran a red light. My mind was so distracted that I didn’t see it. Cars’ blared their horns and drivers cursed with wild gestures as I pulled through the intersection. I can’t even remember what took my mind off my road. It was as if my brain had suddenly been replaced by a lump of three day old guacamole. Everything just seemed to come crashing down the lump, making it a very sad lump.
The grand plan I have to celebrate my birthday was close to be chucked out the window. My sister-friend Zee-Mama called to remind me about dinner and it was all I could do not to cry on the phone. I am not sure why I wanted to cry I think the lump was trying to take control of the rest of my body. I wanted to stay home and just be.. when I stopped to consider what I was going to be for the rest of the night, I hopped back in the car.
Zee wouldn’t let me cancel. I am to report to her house Saturday at 5 p.m. with book and hang out at the pool. It won’t fix any of the problems plaguing me, but it is a natural repellant for the lump inside my head.
Maybe she will have some lemonade for me to sip on?
