my day

January 20, 2010 · 4 comments

My day started out pretty crappy (slept too good, had crazy dreams I needed to finish, and I did not want to get up, plus I was just inexplicably cranky).

Finally got the boys to school (late) to find the doors we’re supposed to drop off at locked. Annoying.

Decide to try to talk myself out of bad mood with McDonald’s for breakfast, including one of their lovely McCafe Frappes and very loud Glee music.

McDonald’s drive-thru inexplicably closed; they requested (at the speaker) for people to come in to order. Uh, no. Not getting out of the car.

Had BK for breakfast instead and was wholly unsatisfied.

Finally get into the groove at work – inventory, talking frame lines, discussing how to revamp, what to put on sale, etc. Look at watch and realize I have to go get boys (stupid 1/2 day).

Am late getting to boys. Preston with Latchkey group, Matt no where to be found so I race around the school to find him out front with the principal.

Try to talk boys out of going to my mom’s to have lunch and help her get new printer. No dice. Have very long annoying discussion about eating on the way or eating out with her.

Get lost trying a new way to mom’s house.  (But finally have some laughs while realizing that I suck at directions)

Get to mom’s, go to lunch (late and again, wholly unsatisfying, with boys that are being brats), go get new printer.

Go back to mom’s, setup new printer (thankfully easy), try to remember how to play the piano, listen to the boys try harder.

Still cranky.

Bo gets home, and while the boys are occupied with my mom, I had a nice, adult conversation.

Amazingly, turned my mood right around.  Intelligent conversation as mood booster – who’d a thunk it?!

(Of course, the kids were nuts after we got home again, didn’t listen, etc. But Molly (our old nanny/babysitter) came to visit, so that was nice).

And now, to bed.

Tomorrow will be a better day.

and the worst part is that it wasn’t a really bad day by most accounts, more just cranky! Lame, eh?

Whenever I’m having a day like that, I think it could always be made worse by stepping in dog crap.

So I find I tread very carefully.
