One of "those" days

Okay I had an entirely different post planned for today, but I needed to vent. Have you ever had one of those days where it just seems as though everything is going wrong? Yesterday was SO that day for me. Not cool.

It started with a 4:50am alarm to wake me up for a 5:00am global call for work. Let's be honest here, no one wants to start working that early. Gross. Even worse, the call really didn't provide any value to me whatsoever. The best part of the day is that I did manage to squeeze a 4 mile run in after that early call. After the run, it went downhill from there. Work was less that stellar. That may be the understatement of the year. I don't know about y'all, but I do NOT enjoy doing other people's work and I do NOT like it when people in the office treat me like an incompetent child. Just saying. I ended up having a call scheduled during lunch, so I had to scarf down some food when I got the chance. I was supposed to get off work at 4:30pm (yes a nearly 12 hour day) to go down to Sugar Land to visit with my family. Well my call lasted until 5:00pm and there was no way I was going to drive from down town in rush hour traffic. So I did like any grown up woman would do and I called my mom and cried. Hard. That's a good way to get out my frustrations.

Around 3:00pm (the only hour I wasn't on the phone for work), I got a call from my husband. He got an e-mail about our taxes. It's not good. Not good at all. We expected to owe since we were bumped up a tax bracket from our move, but not this much. I'm talking thousandS people. Oh well, what can you do.

After I talked to my mom, I decided to go on a nice long walk with the pup. On this walk I got rained on twice (rain? it had been beautiful all day). When I went to pick up Maggie's poop, I managed to stick my thumb in it...GROSS. And, Maggie jumped up to say hi to a lady who was waiting at the bus stop.  Mind you, she did not touch this lady. She said to me, you need to learn how to control your dog before someone files a law suit. Really? I had control of her, she just jumped up. She's not even a year and a half old and she's only 40 lbs.  

Then came dinner. I was not in the mood to drive anywhere nor was I in the mood to cook. I was supposed to be having Curry Chicken with my family! So, of course, I heated up a bag of broccoli and sauted a few shrimp in olive oil. Tadaaaa! Thank goodness for broccoli. More importantly, thank goodness for the big bowl of ice cream I proceeded to eat afterwards. Sorry Lenten promise, it was medicinal...does that count?

Thank goodness I had this Tuesday's episode of Dance Moms and Monday's episode of Make It or Break It to cheer me up. Bed time was promptly at 9:30pm because I was ready for the day to be OVER.

Thanks for listening to me rant. I feel as though I am always so positive here because I truly am a positive person. However, I'm human and FAR from perfect. I hope that today is better than yesterday and that everyone else has a wonderful day as well!

Until next time...
With love and God bless


  1. Boo! I know how you feel... After buying the house last year, we were expecting positive news on our taxes too, but we got bumped up a tax bracket as well so we owe THOUSANDS, too. Blech.

    And double boo to that terrible lady being so mean to you and Maggie! How rude!

  2. I hate days like that! Hope the rest of the week goes better!

  3. UGH! When it rains, it pours, huh?!
    I'm sorry that happened to you lady!
    I don't know how you held your tongue at the lady who told you to control your dog. I would've snapped.
    I hope tomorrow is an amazing day for you!

  5. Ugh. I'm so sorry you had a bad day! Yesterday was a horrible day for me too. And I most definitely cried on the phone with my mom. She alwaysss knows how to make me feel better :) Hope today and your weekend are MUCH better!

  6. Dude, the lady's comment! People are crazy sometimes! It reminds me of that ee card from pinterest: "oh you don't like dogs? Good luck living life without a soul!" I'm paraphrasing, but I'm sure you've seen it. :)


I love hearing from you, so leave a little note :)
