Notes to Self

Friday the 13th

I am not a religious person – not sure if I believe in God. And while I claim to not be superstitious I think I am.

Today is Friday the 13th.

Most people think of the horror movie, but I think Friday the 13th confers some negative quality to life.

It may be a self-fulfilling prophesy type deal, but these “13th” Fridays are more frustrating, sad and/or tiring than other Friday’s. Things tend to be more difficult and problems arise more frequently.

Today is the last day of my husband’s unemployment benefits. He lost his job over a year ago. And that was a job he had after losing his other job, which he had for over 10 years (the company was bought 0ut). I am scared for our future. I feel sad for him because I can’t imagine what he must be going through but know that it isn’t easy and must hurt a lot. I am grateful for my job and the health benefits. It is more than others have.

There were only three Friday the 13th’s in 2012. Today is the last for the year 2012. There will only be two in 2013 (thank God! ha!).

So here’s hoping that today goes fast and is uneventful (unless it is good news!).
