Here's how is started off:
"First off, I did not get any sleep last night. Geno and I were/are contemplating getting another dog. I spent the entire night adding up all the reasons why we do not need another dog right now....and then tossing all of those reasons out the window, and thinking about how much I would love to have another fur baby to join Delta and Beulah. I seriously could not stop my mind from going back and forth. ALL. NIGHT. It was horrible.
For the split second that I did go to sleep, I dreamed that Paula Deen was cutting my hair. She cut it really short, and I cried and cried. I woke up from that crazy nightmare and started thinking about the dog again.
When I arrived to work (after trying to "right" a a brick column I knocked over yesterday in our driveway)--in the rain, I found that the mini fridge behind my desk had died. RIP--That thing has held my breakfast and lunch for the last 10 years....so sorry to see her go...and now I have to go buy another one. Dang.
Goodbye old friend.
While trying to get a look at the back of my refrigerator, I knocked my favorite coffee mug/Tervis tumbler off my desk and cracked the lid. Seriously? It would have been slightly comical had I not started off with such a rough morning already."
It just seemed like everything that could go wrong did go wrong--until I got home.
Geno greeted me at the door, along with Delta and Beulah. I had my favorite after work snack, cinnamon apple oatmeal with a dollop of peanut butter. I got in an hour spin session on my bike. Geno and I tried a new restaurant, and it was awesome (brisket tacos--yum!). I got a new mini-fridge. We decided to go ahead and get another puppy--more on that later. I texted back and forth with my Dad for most of the night--he is just TOO sweet. I had a good night's sleep, and woke up ready to face the day smiling on Tuesday.
All of this to say, when everything seems to be going wrong--remember that it's a bad DAY and not a bad LIFE! I have so much to be thankful for and grateful for....just need to focus on rolling with the punches and gettin' to the good stuff!
