Monday - I need to hop on my own bandwagon today.

I've had a Murphy's Day - today. I've faught to keep myself positive, but I'll admit - I was a tad bit (lol) frustrated today.

Got the GS to school and went and washed my hair (and it did not turn out so well today - it looks pooped), started flying though my emails, when all of a sudden - the whole entire house had a power failure.

I was right in the middle of a long letter! Well, that's gone. I tried to get on my computer all day long! Nope couldn't get on. I'm a computer-holic so this was so rough for me. It drove me nuts and I was worried if the computer was even salvageable - I waited for hubby to get home and wouldn't you know - it worked right away with no problem.

Had to make dinner and clean all that up - then it was my night to put the GS to bed - so not much computer time for me today.

My keyless alarm quit working so I bought a replacement one at Ebay. I can't find my valet button - which I know I have, I know where it is supposed to be - yet it is not there. Can't fix that either.

Money is tight. My GS wanted something at Toys R Us - he 'really really' NEEDED! Abd I'm a push over.

Daughter and I are having some words today too.

School has been a little rough for the GS - so we have to deal and be a little more forceful with his teacher.

Should I go to my room and cry, yell at someone, feel sorry for myself, kick the dog or . . . or what?

Now I did have some of those moments today - I will admit. I was whining some too.

Now that I'm taking some breathing time and some thinking time - I'm going to pick myself up, dust myself off, complain to you all (lol), and then I've decided to have a good rest of the night! YEAH!

It is a choice (even for me as I am a work in progress too) - at least not to waste the rest of the day!

Is there something going 'round that we don't know about, Sandie?

Guess I got up on the wrong side of the bed today; at any rate, if today were a dress, I'd return it!

Buttercup's got a great picker-upper pix posted ... go see!

Susan said...

Awwwww Sandie, so sorry your day sucked rotten eggs. But you know what? Tomorrow is ANOTHER day...a fresh, clean slate. It will be better! (hopefully)

Was happy to see your post. When I have rotten egg days, I always tell myself, "THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS." Susan

Melanie said...

Sorry you had a bad day, Sandie. :(
I hope tomorrow will be better for you!

Terra said...

I think tomorrow will be a fresh new day that is more upbeat for you.

Lots of hugs! Cheryl

Days like this happen. It's just some of the poop we have to wade through once in a while. Sounds as if you're attitude is right on target again, and all is well !
Hang in there! Old Broads Rule! (speaking only of myself, of course!)

Ginny said...

Yikes, what a crazy day! We've all had them, and they really test your patience and your nerves both!! Tomorrow is a whole new day to start over!! Breathe deep and relax.

Oh, Sandie...sorry for your bad day! Don't know about anyone else but for me to have a good cry works wonders.

This is a great article on tears and well-being:

hugs to you, Sandie. I had a day or two like that a few weeks ago, was just agitated at everything, computer running slow, problems with the work coming in for work, etc. I think God was trying to teach me to slow down and be patient and not to get too upset about things. I had to apologize to him for my agitation and short fuse. hoping tomorrow is a better one!

Feelings...we all have them, and some days we can handle them better than others. When things pile up, I lie down. Hope you have a great today!

Gaston Studio said...

Sorry you had a yucky day Sandi, but like some of the other commentors said, tomorrow is another day and it will surely come, whether you want it to or not. Hope you have a better one!

Sorry to hear about your day. The good news is that the week just has to get better, right???? When I have a day like that I hit the tub for some bubbles and a good read!


Linda @ A La Carte said...

It's Tuesday now so I sure hope today is a better day! As you well know I have those days also. Like everything I touch turns to poop! I love your attitude, it will be better and it will!
Love you my friend. Big Hugs,Linda
