Yet, if I was honest...I was having one of those days today. From the time I woke up after hitting my alarm clock a bazillion times, with my back aching, only to look in the mirror and scare myself silly, I realized that today would be a "horrible" day.
When I walked into the kitchen and realized that my dog had treated herself to a late night treat of chicken scraps left over from last night's dinner and I had trash all over the kitchen floor, I somehow knew that today would be a "terrible" day.
When I was at work and nothing went right and then my boss asks if I'm "cranky" today as I'm leaving, I replied with a "YES, I'm cranky and I'm leaving before I say something I shouldn't!" Today was "No Good" for sure!
I went walking with my daughter, listening to her ramble on about how fat she is while I sweat, only to feel a little defeated myself. I am sooooo out of shape!!! What should have made me feel better only added to my frustration on this "very bad day!"
I went to "vent" to the hubby, who was worn out from work, only to realize he almost fell asleep on me three times, while I was talking. I bet husbands in AUSTRALIA listen to their wives ramblings with their eyes open...
Yep, the whole day I felt like Alexander. However, in the midst of all the bad day stuff, I realize that there is always something to be thankful for. I'm thankful I did have a bed to rest in last night, that we have our diva dog, that today was pay day and I do have some extra income coming in, that my daughter and I were able to spend some time together and that I have a hubby who tries to patiently listen, but who also works hard to provide for his family. Hmmmm...
Maybe "I" will just go to bed and try to wake up on the "right" side tomorrow.

(This post was written last night...I'm happy to report Mich has had a change of attitude and is having a better day today! Amazing how that works, huh?)
