My day...WHOA

What a day I had!!!
I got up this morning and wrote out a cover letter for the Australian Defence Apparel while I had coffee and emailed it off to my mums work for her to proof it, hopped in the shower got all fluffed up, even put eyeliner and mascara on !!
Felt really confident leaving the house and as I was unlocking the flywire door with an arm full of bits I started to drop them and as I caught them my plastic folder that had my resume in it came up and straight into my open eyeball....MY GOD it hurt and I have a scratch across it, so after cursing crying cursing some more screaming the universe is against me getting a job we go to... hmm well emergency is the only place in bendigo with the eye machine!! whats with that... so off to emergency and it is PACKED even the ambulances were parked across the road because there were 6 in the bays and a taxi already...far out mondays aye the grog has worn off and people have just realised how hurt they are from their weekend!! the nurse said mondays are the worst day!!
After about an hour with a 2 year old and me finally being able to open my eye I spoke to the nurse and she said I wont be seen at this rate till 9pm (it was midday)... So I said I will go in tomorrow and get it checked to make sure it wont get infected and all that lovely eye stuff.. so off we trot to mums work and get the letter app printed and off we go to ADA to be told this is ADI and ADA havent been there for 10 yrs WTF!!! where have I been... hmmm
I wish I had google maps on my phone... the man was lovely and found me a map and ADA is around the corner from my house DUH I am really feeling like a doofus at this stage of the day but staying strong...... finally off to ADA hand my bits in and finally get home feeling like I have had a f**ktard of a day and being miserable.
Then less than an hour the phone rings asking me to go in for a machine test... PHEW all goood...
what a rant!!!
ANyhoo I hope I get this job, its 6 pm till 11 pm on a 9 day fortnight, great with the kids I don't need childcare and when I have both kids at school I can figure out what I'm gonna do when I grow up!!
