Not so good day  
It's rare for me to say a day isn't good. But today could have been a lot better. Got some bad news from a friend that got me down. Just something I can really sympathize with. So my day started off sad. Chris worked all day today. He's on the way home now. That's good. We need the money, but I have been going crazy by myself today. That also rarely happens, but I found something else that REALLY took the wind out of my sails. I logged into Royal Caribbean's website to look at the shore excursions and the one for Chichen Itza is gone. That has been the whole point of this trip for me. I haven't thought of it as my "Caribbean cruise" but as my "Mexico trip". I guess it sold out and they are booked and I missed my chance to get it. I'm very disappointed. I do have second and third options and they are pretty awesome but it's hard to get excited when I was so dead set and excited about this. The other choices are Tulum which is a ruin on the beach. The only one in all of Mexico. I have been there before and it is lovely. I know Chris would like it. And the other option which is pretty kick ass is a submarine around the coral reef that goes as far as 100 feet down. That rocks, but I can't get excited because I'm so disappointed. But there's still time. MAYBE someone will chancel and it will come back up. I will keep an eye on the website. I didn't get it sooner because I didn't have the money. I have enough now, but then I'd be nearly broke. I get paid tomorrow but I would have liked to have saved up for all the shore excursions and pay them all at once. I didn't expect them to sell out so soon. I don't know. I probably shouldn't get so upset so soon. But I couldn't help it. I've been watching videos and already imagining myself there.

I mostly worked on art today. I inked more of the pic of Ophidius as a quetzal vs. Sorath. Then I switched over to the new drawing I made of Cope and Ophidius flying together. I really want to get that one done so I got pretty far. All that's left is to ink Cope's hand and his feet then I can start to color it. So good progress but going a bit nuts during all of it. But I'm glad I'm working on an uplifting pic. I've never been the type to draw sad art when I feel down. I usually draw the opposite. Same for music. I don't listen to stuff that would put me down in the dumps. Been listening to power metal and pirate music all day. I'm also hungry and when I run out of energy I get this way. I'll probably feel better once I eat. Chris is bringing food home. I can't wait. Eh, not sure how to tag this post.

EDIT: Not only did Chris bring me home a yummy meal but look at the cool toy he bought me!

That definitely made me very happy. He's about the size of a tennis ball and squishy. Soooo cute!! Mike WaZowski!

Current Mood: Sad, disapointed & going nuts

I think a submarine trip would be cool. I'd totally go on that if I had a chance and money.

Thank you for being there for me with my bad news.

When I saw that on the tours they had seemed really cool. But Chris still wants me to see a pyramid because I wanted that so badly. One thing is for sure. I know next time we travel our big trip will have to be a week in Mexico to do all the cool things they have there.

No prob. You're my good friend and I'll be there for you.

I hope you can get the trip you want. This is why I never get excited about stuff till I'm actually doing it. Even once the tickets are booked. Though when my friend and I arranged for me to visit her next month I couldn't get to sleep cos I was excited about seeing her again. We'd arranged it just before bed lol!
But I too have been listening to lots of music to lighten my mood. I've been very worried about a friend.
Mike is cute! He's one of my faves in Monsters Inc. I haven't seen that movie for years. I should watch it again.

Thanks. I will keep checking the website in case it comes back. It's cool because when you log in there's a count down on how many days before sailing. Very exciting. Wow that's very last minute.

Oh no. I hope that problems with your friend will improve. Yeah Mike is a great character. So lively yet still thinks things through. It's worth watching several times.

I know what you mean about a sad day. I was sad the whole day of my friend's funeral.

I'm so sorry about your trip. It sounded so cool. Keep saving and see what comes up when the time comes. There might be a cancellation on the other one, too.

That's wonderful that Chris brought you home a toy. What a wonderful husband he is. He knows exactly the right things to do.

Yeah that is very sad too.

Yes I will keep checking the website. May-be they will offer it again. There's still lots of time so who knows what will happen.

Yes, it did make me very happy to get this Mike toy. He sure does.

Oh, I'm sorry Thursday was full of disappointing news for you. I hope today and the next days are better. Sometimes bad days just happen. :(

I've never watched Monsters Inc, but that guy is cute!

Thanks. Yeah, things just happen sometimes. Yesterday was good and I think today will be too.
Yes, definitely watch it if you can. It's a great movie.

:) I'll keep thinking good thoughts for you.

I will! I placed a hold on it from the library. I'll look forward to watching it.

Aw, thanks.
Awesome. I hope it will return soon.
