My week at a glance, luck and me

Monday started out with me stepping into a very large dog mess, and I know that is a very ungraceful thing to write about and I can assure you it is even more ungraceful to step in, but that’s how my week started off, with me stepping in dog doo at exactly 8.35 on a Monday morning. The good thing is I live in Italy, which basically means that I had just stepped in good luck. (I’m not kidding Italians have told me this since I very first day I got to this country) Looking down at my brown boot it’s not the first thing that comes to mind. Then I notice not far ahead is a very large puddle. Tuesday my boss leaves for the Bahama’s for vacation, leaving me to do what I do best. Pretend to be the boss. Things run smoothly all week. I am too tired to go out for dinner on Tuesday night though, and at the last minute I get a call and our dinner gets canceled. Lucky. Wednesday I call my one of my biggest prospective clients, again, after she has already told me she is not interested and ask her if I can come and do a presentation. She says no. She has already seen it, I showed her before, she is not interested. Then she calls me back and says yes. Thursday I go to my presentation and after only 7 months of being back to work, I manage to make our prospective client, our client. Very Lucky. I walk out feeling on top of the world, I call my husband and ask him if I can invite him for a drink.

Later while we are drinking prosecco (which is an Italian sparkling white wine) I am excitedly telling my husband about my day, he listens to me carefully, letting me bask in my glory and celebrating with me..
I look at him and think my luck started long before Monday..

  1. What a lovely way to tell us how great your husband is. And it is not luck that is helping you, it is YOU, that great hardworking person that you are. Thank you, Angie.
