It was a day that began with being screamed at.
It became a day in which my floor was vomited on.
It went on to be a day in which the dishwasher, which died last week and we'd bought a piece to repair it, slit its veins in a last gasp effort to garner attention and spewed water all over the floor.
And, also, a day that I was called names, and also, a day in which I had to clean poop out of my washer TWICE with my bare hands.
A day that I ended up mopping my front hall AND kitchen floor - which I hadn't planned on doing - washing two extra loads of towels (used to clean up the gallons of suicide water from the dishwasher, also unplanned), vacuumed the entire downstairs, and then, just for fun, I sterilized my washer AND my dryer - because both smelled like poop.
You know. Just for FUNSIES.
A day in which one of my children had something very bad happen.
A day in which I purchased a new dishwasher, for delivery in ten days - can't be sooner, because of the specific model I want - and with three dishwashers in ten years, yes, I am buying the one that rated the best in Consumer Reports - from a person whose business card read "Advocate of Appliance Awesomeness" -
And the dishwasher cost more than my first car. But I did buy the five year warranty. Absolutely I did.
And then I was yelled at some more. And had many, many people cry. I didn't make them cry - they just did, out of their own free will. Because they are GIVERS that way, those people in my life.
A day in which I had the nerve, the absolute TEMERITY, to remove a goody bag from one of my kids hot little hands. Said goody bag - given at school, is this a new thing, do I now have to provide treats AT SCHOOL? - contained FIFTEEN lollipops. No child needs fifteen lollipops - especially one child with two cavities and two fillings.
You probably heard the screams of outrage over by you. I feel pretty confident said screams are what caused the earth to tremble overseas today.
So, oh happy people - please tell me something good. A joke. A funny. Some great news you have in your life. Because, right now, Ye Olde Black Cloud is prevelant and foremost in my mind and I seriously, and I do mean SERIOUSLY -
need a mood changer.
