The Universe Is Out To Get Me

I spent all morning looking for fabric glue. Fabric glue. It isn't a difficult item to come by. Any hobby, craft, fabric or corporate chain store should carry it. I'm not picky about the brand, as long as it sticks fabric together I'm happy. All morning, four hours, on the hunt for one measly tube of fabric glue. Was I able to find fabric glue? No, I was not. I'm still stunned and confused. All I need is a single, simple tube of fabric glue. That's it. Nothing more. And yet, the universe has deemed fit that I should not come into possession of that one most coveted item. It's one of those days where I feel like the universe has chosen me to be the butt of its daily jokes. I feel as though no matter what I was looking for, it would have eluded me. Murphy's Law, I live by it. Cosmic sense of humor is a b1tch.

Oh man, isn't that the way? I've got more hemming bond than I know what to do with, actually. But it's the wrong color for what I need. I used to always see fabric glue everywhere, and now it's nowhere to be found!

Welcome to my world. For me the item was 1" elastic and the store was Hobby Lobby. I'd tell you the story, but I'm not quite over it yet. You are not alone in the "Jokes on You Courtesy of the Universe" Club, lol. Hope your week gets better.

Ahh life for us normal folk, you can only find something when your not looking for it The universe is a TV and God had to have a sitcom ;)
