It was one of "THOSE" kind of days!!!

Ever had one of those mornings when you woke up to Mr. Alarm Clock, you were swearing to yourself that you had just closed your eyes for the night?

Ever look in the mirror first thing and wonder if the flatiron is a magical device, because you are going to need it...?

Ever had one of those days when your face looked like a pizza? Whoever said teenagers are the ones with acne, lied!

Ever have one of those days at work when you left for lunch, everything seemed fine, but when you returned, you realized chaos exploded while you were gone?

Have you ever had one of those days when you were accused behind your back of causing trouble, told you were going to probably get a "call," only you never did, and you are left wondering what is really going on and who is telling the truth? (Confused? I am. Although, there was a little excitement in me for just a moment...I've never been accused of being a troublemaker! Well, unless you consider grade school tattletales by my sister. Hey Amb! Thirty something years later and the truth finally comes out...)

Have you had one of those days, when you come home from work and your daughter is chatting away on the phone and you find the dog has crated herself, for the mess she made, because telephone girl is "tied up?"

Have you ever had one of those days when your daughter finds out that her first soccer practice is actually a scrimmage and will be tomorrow night, which means she needs shin guards and soccer cleats tomorrow night too? I thought I had at least a week to shop!!!

Ever find out that there is an outbreak of the flu in town and the lady that you work with calls you to tell you that her two year old is being admitted into the hospital tonight?

Ever had a day when you felt pulled in umpteen directions? Sign him up for AWANA. Get my Sunday School material for Sunday. Pick up Kayla's friend for church. Do what hubby asks...

Have you ever had one of those days when you just want to crawl in bed and ask everyone and everything to kindly leave you alone?

Once a month, I have one of those days. It is one of those days when my children know to run for cover. It is one of those days, when pushing mom's buttons is not a wise choice. It is one of those days when the simplest of tasks seems overwhelming. It is a day when emotions run rampant. It is one of those days when nothing will make it better...

except maybe this...

Oh, the power of sugar and carbs!

And yes, I ate every bite by myself!!! (Honestly? Kayla had two out of eight.)

But hey, I deserved it. It was just one of those days! And don't even try to tell me otherwise...not today,anyway!

I say eat them all and enjoy every bite! LOL! Sorry you had one of those days! Hope tomorrow is a better one :)

Oh today will be better! :)

Praying you all stay well there in your town and family!

Need I say it. WASH YOUR HANDS! That stuff is going around. Stay well, even on one of "THOSE" kind of days!!

Baby Girl CRATED HERSELF? Now that's the kind of lesson a lot could learn.

Reminds me, did you see the forwarded u-tube I sent?
Love you,

I think I'm having one of "those" days today. Yesterday was great, today is starting off weird. I just at a big chunk of chocolate and it's 9:30am(but it's one of those days!)

I agree with Jim-dad...wash those hands! The swine flu is in our town too!

Yes I think we all have one of those days and let's just hope all the things you had listed didn't happen in the course of one full day. Yikes!

I'd be up for more than just a few cinnamon rolls. We are talking an entire sugar and carbs raid with some chocolate thrown in for good measure.

Love and Hugs ~ Kat
