    Got up early this morning and went out with the kids to try to get things done. Note that I only said TRY.

    Went to Sears to get my son's blazer for school. Is the only part that is required. The employee shows me to a computer and tells me I have to order it on-line. I could do that at home. I start working on it, and the computer freezer twice. At this moment I am not happy. I ask for help to determine the size, but they don't take measurements. What do the do? Nothing. Had to go back and order from home.

    Went to meet with someone to see an apartment. They guy doesn't show up.

    Try to transfer Jorge's prescriptions to a local pharmacy and they messed it up so bad it took 90 minutes to get it straight.

    Met with someone else to see another apartment and was stereotyped. We saw this great building in Harlem. Close to school, quiet, just older people around. He starts by telling me that the income required is 80K. Sorry, but I don't buy that. Then he looks at me and tells me that he thinks we would be happier in Washington Heights, among other hispanics. He took us to a building that was disgusting and every window faced the trash. That did it. I was furious. Left faster than I could. From now on, no leasing agents. Searching now on my own.

    I am hoping for better luck tomorrow.

    I like this quote...it has helped me through a rough time:

    “Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, 'I will try again tomorrow.'” -- Mary Anne Radmacher

    Be courageous.

    Abe Lincoln said that it is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and erase all doubt. That idiot erased all doubt!! Hope tomorrow is 1000% better.

    I suggest chocolate and a good hot bath. I agree, you didn't want to live there, you will find just the right place, things will get better.

    I don't know why you didn't just slap the crap out of that man. Was he from the race of dumb a$$es? I am sorry but these kind of ppl just piss me off.
    I really hope you have a fabulous day tomorrow.

    Evening was much better. Went snack shopping with my daughter when she came back from work. We walked and talked a bit and found apple soda for my son. He had it in NYC 4 years ago and wanted to have it again. I didn't get to sew, but started painting a block for a very cute quilt I have in mind. It has printed flowers but needs some color and I am painting it with color pencils.

    I get to meet a board member later this week. details later.

    Maria

    I am sorry I didn't mean to be so forward but there are just some things that I just don't understand why they exsist. I can not stand racism towards anybody.
