Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to be bad, and you just want to start a new day or go on vacation? Today was one of those days for me. :-) I'll try to add the positive things in as well though.
It started out feeling very very tired. I seem to be more tired the last week or so. I got to work and found out one of the other receptionists was not coming in.(Positive #1, The store that I get a muffin from had resees chocolate muffins today, they were so good) Ok, I thought, thats fine. Usually my job is not very demanding at all. But today was a new thing. I was so busy talking to so many crazy people. (I do applications over the phone for legal aid) I hardly got to eat anything for lunch, which for a pregnant person, that is not a good thing. I had to leave work a little early to go to the dentist and get a cavity filled. That in and of itself would make your day bad.
So I got my cavity filled and it was very painful. I hate the dentist. Meanwhile, I'm still starving and can't eat anything because my cheek is numb. So I came home and layed on the couch for a half hour or so, and Richard came home. And he had a nice little yellow slip to present to me (he got a speeding ticket). That really throws everyone for a loop. He was irritated and I was trying really hard not to be for his sake.
Then I had to go grocery shopping. (postivie #2, I saved $37 on my bill, now that is pretty good). I always feel like I spend so much money so that isn't very fun. We are going on a mini vacation with Richard's brother and fam, and sister and Fam on wednesday, so I had to get a bunch of stuff for that. We are all kinda splitting the food. When we got home, I realized that I had forgotten the ingredients to make puppy chow that I was going to make for the trip. So Richard went back to the store for me.(Positive #3, I have a great husband who will do that for me, even when he has a lot of school work to finish before his 6:30 A.M. class) Meanwhile I'm making another kind of cookie (Centennial crunch) that requires melting butterscotch chips and peanut butter together. OF course I must've burnt the chips or something becuase it started to turn solid. but I still managed to get somewhat of a cookie made out of it, and it still tastes the same. But I'm embarrassed to take my famous cookies on the trip becuase they aren't normally that weird looking.
So Richard gets home from the store and I go to make the puppy chow, and I have to mess that one up too. Who messes puppy chow up? I am usually a pretty decent cook. But again I feel like I wasted all those ingredients, and of course I'm embarrassed to take not very good puppy chow on our trip with us. UGH!!!
And just remember while you read all of this, I am pregnant,(maybe I can blame all of this on being pregnant, at least my mistakes) very very tired, and all I can think about is laying down and sleeping.
So its 8:15pm right now, I'm ready to give up on everything, go to sleep and hope that when I wake up tomorrow things will be brighter and better. :-)
And in one more day I am going on vacation to the Beach!!!!
Jess, I'm so sorry you had such a rough day! I hope your get-away will be the wonderful refreshing experience you need! I'm praying for you!
Oh, Jessica, I hope you have a much better day today!! Enjoy your mini-vacation!
oh sounds like a horrible day but I am so glad you could find some postive things in the midst of it all!! Enjoy that vacation!!!!
You're so silly Jess- and I love you dearly. Your post was funny, but I am sorry you had a bad day- only you could make it sound funny even though I know you were hating it the whole time.
Love you friend! :)
I was CRACKING up at this post!!! I can just picture the whole thing and how frustrated you were!!! So, did the cookies and puppy chow miraculously change overnight so that they were normal when you woke up??? And, the big question, did you take them with you on your trip? I bet everyone loved them anyway. The boys would never had noticed probably!:-) Anyway, I'm glad you had a fun vacation at the beach anyway. I LOVE YOU!!!!
Sorry you had such a bad day but I hope you are having an awesome vacation! On days like those I always feel like going to sleep and starting over - sometimes that is exactly what you need - SLEEP!
