It didn't rain today, far from it, but it felt a little as if a dark cloud were following me around. It was one of those days when all the little things go awry, and you're left looking over your shoulder to see when the big one will hit. I guess it didn't, really, but I'm still looking.
I had to leave the house twice on the same errand run this morning. That's a bad start. I'm going to the bank and the post office, so all I have to remember is to take the deposit and the mail, right? It shouldn't have been a big deal to remember both at the same time, instead of having it hit me on the way to the post office that I'd forgotten the bank deposit.
Then when I found the audit notice in my mailbox, I just wanted to crawl back into bed. Instead I drove home, picked up the deposit, and went to the bank, where I had to stand in line behind a woman who kept backing into me. That wouldn't have been so bad if she hadn't turned around and given me a dirty look every time she did it.
I could only give her so much room without having someone think the line ended with her and step in front of me. I finally had to step on the back of her sandal to hold her in place. Well, no, I didn't really do that, but don't think it didn't cross my mind.
The audit. The insurance company that's dropping us (and all other California contractors) like last week's garbage (and believe me, have recent experience with that foul odor) wants to look over our books, just in case we didn't pay them enough. Did we have any claims? No. Did we pay our exorbitant premiums on time? Yes. Did they give us any notice of this audit? One week. Pissed me the hell off.
