The sequence of events:
I got up and my blood sugar crashed hard.
Then it was humid.
Then I had a hot flash.
So shaky, sweaty and disoriented from the sugar crash, the humidity sent me round the twist, and a hot flash at that moment is what I would consider adding insult to injury. In fact, I think hot flashes should be illegal between Memorial Day and Labor Day, but no one asked me.
Anyway, the events continued:
The painters arrived unexpectedly at 8 AM.
The proper Capricorn full moon was at 7:30 AM.
Add: one partial lunar eclipse.
What did I do?

Sometimes, a painter just forgets to call, the full moon happens, and hot flashes? Well, they have a method and a madness all their own.
Lighten up, dear one.
As John Bucchino, that brilliant songwriter, so eloquently sings, “It’s Only Life.”
Or, more soberly, but nonetheless a truth, remember the wisdom of Solomon’s Ring:
This Too Shall Pass.
