Remember this book from when you were a kid? This is how my day has felt...
(excerpt from book)
"I went to sleep with gum in my mouth and now there’s gum in my hair and when I got out of bed this morning I tripped on the skateboard . . . and I could tell it was going to be a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day."
From there, Alexander’s day just keeps getting worse as he goes to school, finds himself at the dentist’s office, and has to go shopping for clothes with his mother. He has a miserable day. Even the family cat seems to be against him.
Nothing overly bad has happened today, I am just grumpy. Not quite sure why though. Maybe because Joe is still on night shift and being a "single parent" can take its toll, or I am just having one of those days. Any how, I understand Alexander today. Maybe if I were 5 years old it would be OK to be crabby, but as a mom you aren't given a get out of jail free card. We have to suck it up, put on a smile and pretend to be in a good mood so the kids don't think mom is a grouch.
So on this day I have declared secretly to my internet audience that I am having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Any advice out there on how turn my day around? Maybe a nice yummy coffee from Starbucks, mmm mmm, that might just do it!
Tomorrow I will be all sunshine and roses, I promise.
Ta Ta for now
