a good sign

I was in Boston for a conference in August. I came home from the conference, unpacked my stuff, moved the suitcase to my closet.

4 weeks ago, I looked through the closet and realized that I was missing two dresses.  One of which was the only dress I ever paid full price for.  Yep, it was awesome enough for this always-looking-for-a-sale girl to buy even though it was not on sale.  That should say something about how awesome it was.

I was super-bummed.

I called the hotel and left messages on random answering machines.  Then, things got busy for a few weeks.  I called last week and was sent (by the hotel operator) to random numbers where I left messages again.  Desperate messages.

So when I actually reached a real live person today, and that real live person told me that they’d call me back, I seriously doubted it.

And then, at 8pm tonight, I got the most amazing phone call – THEY HAVE MY DRESSES AND THEY’RE GOING TO SEND THEM BACK TO ME! The woman on the other end of the phone laughed about how excited I was to hear the good news.  So, even if she insisted on spelling Minneapolis Minneooiss (seriously, I could not get her to spell it right), I will likely get my dress back!  YES!

After I realized I had forgotten the dresses, I decided it was a sign that things in my life were too busy and chaotic.  So I’m going to take this as a sign that things are back on track.  Woohoo!

    Before you invest in anything, be sure to check your tarot cards and tea leaves. They might tell you something different! Seriously, when did you get so superstitious as to believe in “signs”?

    PS: Glad you will get the dresses back…I can’t believe they still had them after all these weeks!

    Congratulations! Just getting to speak to a real live person is an accomplishment in itself.
