Things are looking up!

I realize I'm more of a glass half empty girl. I try really hard to be positive and think only good thoughts. But then life throws a curve ball and I go into a tailspin. I can go from the glass is half full to the glass is half empty to there is a hole in my glass and everything is dribbling out to I can't even find my glass who took my glass? to my glass is shattered all over the floor and I'll never get another glass all in the span of about two minutes.

So yesterday I was pretty bummed about our car and the fact that I won't be able to spend money on anything fun for at least a year. But then, THEN, I woke up this morning and read a comment that was left on my blog post from yesterday.

Some sweet soul named Debbie informed me that Rick Springfield is going to be in Austin the night before his concert at the rodeo. AND he will be at Barnes and Nobles for a book signing. SWEET!

I immediately called Amy and left her a voicemail. I was so excited! When we finally talked later she realized that she knows the music manager of that particular location. So she's going to see if he can hook us up and make sure we get in to see Rick. Do you realize what this means? It means that finally after 30 years my life long dream has a chance of coming to fruition. I can actually take my Rick Springfield autobiography to the book store and meet him in person! And get him to sign my book! And say hello to him! And maybe get my picture taken with him!!! Maybe things are beginning to go my way after all.

And also we got our Jeep back tonight. Finally, I am free to leave the house again. More good fortune!

Of course, the car cost a small fortune to get fixed. And I'm already worried that Rick might cancel the book signing at the last minute. See? Glass half empty. What is wrong with me?


  1. I think that is one of the many reasons we get along so well. you could have been describing me there!

  2. I'm glad you're going to get to meet Rick. I expect to see pictures posted too ok? ;-) Tell him his "Nurse Debbie from Minnesota" says hello =)
