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?
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!
