    I just had a bad day get better. Ok to start with I have been home alone all weekend, mom is on vacation, sibs are at dads. Its been raining all weekend so I couldnt do anything outside, a few chicks died, a lady wants more black stars than we have right now, then the dog got under the house and broke the skirting on it. Last night the dogs ate the fart eggs, they got into the friendship bread mix and ruined it, the cockatoo screamed all night, the cats were crazy, it has just been a total crazy mess. Back in March I started my job search and put in apps everywhere, got turned down at the grocery and the movie store. When I called the hardware store after I turned in an app they said they send them all in and a group of people call back the good people or something so I gave up hope. Well this morning I was talking to mom and someone tried to call and I didnt recognise the number so I figured I would call them after I was done. I called and the lady said she was the manager of the hardware store and that I turned in an app in March and asked if I was still interested because they have some possistions available and if I could come in tuesday at 11 for an interview, I had to think then said yes.
    The reason I had to think is because I am working part time at a goat dairy. The people went on vacation for 2 weeks and I milk morning and nights. I dont have a vehicle so I have to ride my bike. I have to ride 4.5 miles from here to the highway, then cross the highway and go another 4 miles to get there, there are 3 big dips, it takes me about 40 minutes to get there by bike. I am normally done milking by 7:45, then get home by 8:30. My plan for tuesday is to get back, eat then leave by alittle after 10(it only takes me about 10-15 minutes to get to town, its all flat).
    That is how my bad day turned good. Has anyone else ever had that happen?
