On Thieves, Hurricanes and Tennis Racquets

I just read through my last post and realized that i was planning a special home coming for my boyfriend.......how fast things can change in the space of a few days!! Well i did have a special day, but by wednesday of that week, we decided to go our separate ways...strangely enough, though i was upset for like 2 days maximum, i was really upbeat afterwards....it seems there was a lot of stress there (realized and un-realized) that just evaporated away. So i found a new apartment, moved out and set about getting on with my "new" life. Truthfully, we are still talking and reconcilliation? who knows? But what i do know is that i have set off on my life as a single girl after quite a few years of coupledom!!!

So i moved into my new apartment and i am waiting on all the parts to come together to make a whole...the furniture store is to deliver my new stuff, the cable company is to come do their installation etc. etc. etc. I am holed up at my office waiting on a call from any of these people so that i can rush home and let them in....I go out into the reception area and the receptionist informs me that she has been taking messages for me because she did not know i was still there!! I am extremely surprised and ask why and she proceeds to tell me, "well your car is not in the lot, so i just assumed.....", I rush outside, no car, everybody else rushes outside....still no car!! We figure that it must have disappeared like 15 minutes earlier...so we call the police, we call the company bosses, we set off a citywide search.......5 days later, still no car....my tennis racquets were in that car!!!!!!!

Anyway, the company rents me a car (bout half as nice as the stolen one) and i go about the business of getting my apartment habitable....only to hear that we can expect hurricane dennis on thursday. Not the best news for a single girl who has just moved into a new apartment that is on the ground floor....Anyway dennis turns out to be more bark than bite (this the jamaican experience) and proceeds to dump many inches of water on the island.....some of this water ends up in my new 20 square foot, sunken closet....my engineering analyses inndicates that this occured as a result of a local rise in the ground water table! Anyways after many hours of mopping, i again have a dry closet!!

Am I angry? sad? disillusioned? NOPE........none of these things!! I am quite happy...except that i really miss my tennis racquets!!!!
