I admit I am nearing my wits end with all that is going wrong. Big things, little things, it all accumulates. So I was somewhat relieved when I read Yarn Harlot’s blog today and discovered that almost everyone is having the same trying time because Mercury is in retrograde. Mercury won’t be out of retrograde until March.

Normally, I am a peaceful person, but the last 72 hours has transformed me into a rhinoceros with a very bad attitude. Can we blow Mercury out of retrograde and into proper present grade? I can’t wait until March. What has all the space exploration been for if we can’t keep a planet in our own solar system in order?

I want to thank Mercury in all its splendid retrograde attire for the following items: a computer that is fubar, a design drought that rivals the Mohave Desert, shoveling snow just to shovel it all over again after the next snow fall–a little like Sisyphus and his rock—, everything that I ordered through the mail that hasn’t arrived and is missing, the snow plow taking out the garbage bin, the television screen pixelating and freezing up so you can’t watch it, phones that don’t work because the one tech gadget I need up and running for them to work up and died—it’s replacement is “coming in the mail”.

Thank you Mercury in retrograde. I couldn’t be this stressed out without you.
