I've got a bit of rambling for you today.
You know how they say (bad) things happen in 3's......well, I've got two down.
The first was that I had the worst day at work yesterday. The worst day in 5 yrs of nursing. It left me feeling disheartened, sad & frustrated. For the first time since my short nursing career had started, I just wanted to run away from that building & never look back. I just wanted to run home & hug my family like I've never hugged them before. I just wanted to crawl into bed with my kids & tell them how much they mean to me.Kiss them & tell them I love them. Sometimes I really hate my job & as I cried myself to sleep last night, I knew I had to awaken with a brighter outlook.....for myself & my family. That's life. Things happen. I did my best.....we all did.....now it's time to move on! One day perhaps I'll be able to share the details of this day with you, but today is not the day. Time to look forward.
So I wake up today to check my e-mails and get a startling e-mail from a lady in the Netherlands who is pissed off that I took a blog candy away from her.
you have my price of candy unfair won!
you were not even registered for the candy, so like, I see that you send to me the candy!
and hope that you are so honest to do that.

I was in shock so went to google to find her blog and there it was for all blogland to see.......her accusing me of 'stealing' her candy. Talk about kicking a girl while she's down, right. So in all fairness. let me share both sides of the story to you. There was a candy at stempelientje that I thought I had won (see my response below) when in acutality it was not me...in fact it was this lady...but here is what she wrote on her blog
.....Here's her blog: stating this: This is what hurt the most:
good afternoon ladies, like to send a message to you!
a message for people who give away candy.
I'm very disappointed today, I read datr candy I won at stempelientje
That year corry from canada has claimed the candy.
while she was not enrolled for the candy.
something you would not expect from fellow bloggers?
I hope that people with something to have a candy?
I was so happy that I said to my husband that I first had won a prize and then this!
Sorry I just wanted to vent my heart but it was / is me cross anyway!
everyone a nice weekend and a nice greeting from Corry
update- Corry has since removed this post from her blog.
Now anyone who knows me, knows that I am the most honest person in the world. Sometimes too honest....to a fault. I see a quarter on the ground, I can't even put it in my pocket, cuz it's not mine. I was so upset by this e-mail......
.....I sent her this response on her blog:
Oh my goodness. I did not even realize that this was not me.First of all let me express the utmost of confusion in your e-mail. I couldn't understand it and spent about a half an hour trying to translate it, then I spent another while trying to track you down!! holy cow. I am so sorry about this.
A blogger friend of mine e-mailed me and said "you won the candy over at stempelientje"....I remember thinking....."who is that?" then when I went there and saw my name I was so excited. I sent my info and everything, still thinking it was me, even when I went to look at the entrants of the candy, I saw my name & DIDN'T even think to click the link......I feel horribly and I most definitely WILL BE sending the package onto you when I get it. I apologize profusely for this confusion....it was not my intention to 'steal' a candy underhandedly & the fact that you are portraying me as some sort of 'fake' is horrible, considering YOU DON"T EVEN KNOW ME! I am posting this on my blog, as well so people can see my response to youR words about a fellow blogger that you don't even know. Again, I will pass on the package to you when it arrives and I will also be contacting stempelientje to inform her of the mistake. Pls accept my apologies and please remember that people make mistakes and this was one of them. I've never met anyone with the EXACT same NAME SPELLING as mine. Whether or not you choose to post this comment on your blog will speak volumes of your character! Thanks for understanding.
Corry from Canada (pls feel free to check this comment out on my blog)
Whatever.............once again, life goes on. I am sooooo not in the crafty mood, perhaps I'll just sit & steal candies all day long! lol
Now when's that 3rd bad thing gonna happen?
