The best thing that happened to me happened last Saturday. I did a book reading from my self-published memoir. The beautiful parts about that day were the sunny weather (rare in the Seattle area this time of year!) and the number of friends and family who heard me read. That touched me. The worst thing that happened was so minimal that it seems silly. I had Tuesday night off, which I haven’t had since February, due to an online class I’d been teaching. I’d planned to go to the YMCA to exercise on my free night, but due to a crazy set of circumstances, I went to Staples to buy ink for my printer, and I went to Target to buy some curtains and a curtain rod for a recent remodel. And, because it’s next door, my daughter and I had to pop into PetSmart to peek at the cute guinea pigs. By the time we returned home, the Y was closed, and I was too tired to go anyway!
