the ups and downs of life

Yesterday was a lousy kind of day. Hubby woke me up with some bad news. An important project I've been working on for months now came crashing down and was half ruined, and at the moment I don't know how I'm going to fix the problem. It equated to a lot, lot, lot of my time and energy and effort and excitement all wasted. My deadline for it all is next week and now I'm practically back to square one and I was honestly on the verge of tears all day long.

Then the things I'd usually have a bit more patience for (Pirate playing in his poop. An entire cup of applesauce spilled on the floor. Netflix not working.) became just a bit more than I wanted to handle, and the day slipped further into a woe-is-me kind of day. At one point I told Megan, "I'd like to bang my head against a wall, eat some chocolate, and go back to bed."

But, I had to call and make a doctor's appointment instead. A well woman exam to be exact. And miraculously they had a same-day appointment available, so to make a bad day even more exciting  -I took it. And those appointments, as you know, are always so lovely. (Please hear my sarcasm. You can hear it right?)

Anyway, yesterday is done and over.

Last night I got to go see The Host with a friend I don't get to see outside of church and that was really fun and much needed.

This morning, Pirate was being cuddly and happy and that deep gratitude and joy for my life overtook me, again. Then he asked for "Harry Potter and a banana" and I knew today is going to be a much better day.

My problems aren't solved. I have no idea how I'm going to fix the crash and burn of yesterdays news. I still have no idea where I am moving to come summer. I have a test to take today that I have only barely studied for. I have a half dozen things that have to be done by tomorrow. BUT, today is going to be a good, good day.

Sometimes we need a really crappy day to appreciate all the other days! I'm sorry you had one, though.

Did you like The Host?? My friend wanted me to read the book so I could see the movie with her, but then she said the movie wasn't good... So I don't know if I want to take the time to read the book now...

I feel you. I totally know those kinds of days! I'm so sorry to hear about your project. I hope it will all come back together the way it needs to. Life has a funny way of working out for us, even when it seems like a mess. Take heart! And good luck! :)

Hope your day was awesome! And I bet you get that project whipped back into shape and better then the original! Good Luck!
