So by Friday I had completely determined to let shit go about that missed audition and of course, I get a call saying I have an audition for that part tonight. Of course, I am working all day downtown today. But I’m cool as a cucumber. I took transit and I schlepped all my stuff with me, so I will be prepared but wrinkled. With a lot of chanting I’ve switched into equanimity mode and not getting overly attached to things that are just not in my control.
Oh, and we got a new car. Well, an old car to be exact. Hubby had a friend who was looking to sell her 15 year old car, a very well maintained VW Golf. I insisted he get it checked out by a mechanic at first and other than one repair it’s all good to go. So now he’s got a car so he can get to work. Presently, I’m still stuck with that beast of a gas guzzling pickup, but I’m eyeing that car up. It’s been a long time since I’ve driven a standard, but I’ve driven it once and it’s all coming back to me. Hubby does travel a lot further and frequently than I do and the VW is better on gas. I will have to wait til my mother’s estate is settled and then I will get a small SUV that suits our family better.
Will keep you informed on how tonight goes…..okay, universe, time to shape us and get mama a gig!
