Day 1930 - Feeling bummed #bummed

I am feeling seriously bummed right now.

We went to Sydney on the weekend for daughter modelling commitments and also managed to secure a fantastic opportunity for Cheer Chick Charlie.

Our Charlie meeting was set for this morning.  It was so exciting.

We talked about it over dinner last night and again at breakfast this morning. Husband and I had our spiels ready and knew who was in charge of what.

We got our business clothes on and walked the couple of blocks from the hotel to a very important head office.  We walked in and got awe struck by the possibilities just standing inside a truly amazing space.

We went to the receptionist and she made the call through to the dude we were meeting with. Voice mail.  She left a message advising we were waiting in reception.

We waited knowing he would get the message and come and collect us.

Then ten minutes into our supposed meeting time we texted him telling him we were downstairs. Nothing.

Husband then rang him only to discover he was at home sick. Bed ridden.  Our meeting would have to be postponed.


I know he can't help being sick.

It's not his fault.

But gosh darn it, we were so bloody pumped!! This was THE meeting to kick off our year.  This was THE meeting to (hopefully) take us to the next level.

THE meeting turned into no meeting at all.

Husband did all the right things and left a package of stuff with reception to give to the dude on his return to work.

I just walked outside and cried.

Then we walked back using the same route from which we came.  One way was full of possibilities.  The return trip was full of frustration. We gathered the kids and our gear from the hotel and drove back to Canberra.


Seriously bummed.

I am a big believer that everything happens for a reason.

Today obviously wasn't our day.

The meeting will still happen ... it's not like they rejected us.

We'll still get our shot.

But hell ... when will it be our day?

When do we get this shot?


I know he's sick.  It's not his fault.  But I still feel bummed.


Seriously bummed.
