Awful Day. With A Capital AWFUL.

Have you had one of those days?  You know, where NOTHING goes right? That was my day yesterday.  Ugh.

I had to go to the grocery store first thing in the morning, and took the kids with me.  It's eleventy billion degrees here so we were all cranky from the get-go.  The kids were balls of relentless energy, paired with a healthy helping of whiny, so I didn't even finish the grocery shopping.

I had to go to the craft store to get supplies for several projects that I'm working on... and the craft store didn't have what I needed.  Neither did the other craft store.  Neither did the dollar store.  Oh, and neither did the internet.  Really?  I can't find this EXTREMELY COMMON ITEM online?  Serenity now.

A deal that my husband was negotiating came up shorter than we would have liked.

The heat damn near killed me.

A watermelon that I bought at the grocery store fermented and exploded in my kitchen.

A watermelon seed flying at the speed of light damn near killed me.

My children continued to by whiny for the duration of the day.

My children damn near killed me.


After this series of bummer events, I retired to my bedroom and watched "The Real Housewives of New York City".  Those women are crazy.  But I gathered a little bravery and faced the rest of my day.

I need to remember how bad some people really have it.  My day of unfortunate events are so small, truly.  But when you have a watermelon in your kitchen evidently plotting your death, you tend to wallow in the self-pity pool for a bit longer than necessary.

I am better.  I will be better.  I will find everything I need and finish all my super-duper projects.  I will watch as my children behave like the angels they really are.  I will be productive and happy and lemon-scented.  'Cause at the end of the day, you gotta put it all behind you and try again tomorrow.


  1. Priscilla,
    Oh my! Praying for you this morning to have a less stressful day, more fruitful negotiations for you and DH (and I don't mean with the vengeful semi automatic watermelon!), and calm children. ;)

    Have a blessed day,

  2. being lemon-scented is truly a gift. i strive to smell like lemons each and every day, and i fall short more times than i am successful. you go girl. you get your lemon scent.


I love all the comments I get from you! Because of an insane amount of spam, I had to turn off anonymous commenting but I'd love it if you'd comment anyway!
