Well, let's tally today, shall we?
I didn't have a car accident. I wasn't diagnosed with cancer, diabetes or another illness. No one died. I didn't bounce a check or overdraw my credit card. We didn't run out of milk or toilet paper or peanut butter and we even have enough bread.
I did feel a spectacular sense of failure today with regards to one of my precious chi'dren. It's never a good sign when a teacher comes to you (remember, I work at school) and says, "May I speak with you privately a moment?" Yeah. It was excruciating and the further we got into the conversation, the more upset I became. By the end of the day, when I'd spoken with the kid in question, we were both in tears. Misunderstandings - ah, life. I also had to take part in something that was desperately needed, but made me squirm with discomfort and sadness. Too much drama for one day made my stomach hurt for much of the day. So many tears; the wearing of makeup today was foolish.
BUT. I did make a low fat pumpkin pie, so the day was saved by less sugar, lower fat, and the beauty of pumpkin.
But what I really wanted to talk about was my plan for May 16th.
