Hi. Can we chat? I want to tell someone about my day and you’re the only one here. (sorry)
I woke up. That was good. I wasn’t even late even though the past two weeks of waking up my kids for school have been like dragging a vampire out after the sunrise. Seriously. I’ve literally got to do it for four more days. FOUR. MORE. DAYS. That’s a highlight, right?!
After happily dropping off my teens with 100 lbs. of food (that the hubs all prepared-HIGHLIGHT) for a school picnic, I headed back to my office/home, another highlight. Then I made my 35 second commute to my work computer. Work is so good. (HIGHLIGHT) I was all creative and shit and it was awesome. I love my team and my company and going to work is the best it has every been IN MY LIFE.
Peppered throughout my creatively awesome workday, is my mom. She’s recovering from a total hip replacement and it’s been a trying time to say the least. The pain was pretty bad today and I am feeling terribly guilty that I don’t do more for her. Say a prayer for some healing for her if you do the praying thing.
The neighbor’s dog barked all day. All day long. But not like a regular dog-woof, woof. It barks like it’s barker got messed up somewhere. Like one really loud bark every 3 minutes. Like it never really learned how to bark. I guess this isn’t a huge deal but sometimes those tiny annoying things like to stab you in the brain.
You’ve taken the time to read this far??? Thank you! That’s so touching. I love you. Is that creepy? No. It’s not a creepy love, its a sort of gratitude love that you have spent precious minutes of your life looking at my words on your screen. I digress.
After school was over, my daughter and I had to go shopping. I love shopping. She’s not a fan like I am. Our shopping ventures usually end with yelling or crying or both. We’re pretty passionate people. ( maybe a wee bit dysfunctional.) But today we picked out a dress for her to wear to GRADUATION (HIGHLIGHT) and she loved it. I actually helped her find two things she liked. Two whole things. Definite HIGHLIGHT. I can’t decide if I’m happy or sad or somewhere in between with her graduating from high school. It’s like I wanna high five everyone around me while bursting into tears at the same time. Is this normal?
I picked up some Panera and headed home. After enjoying the deliciousness, I can’t decide if I should be happy or not. Or just indifferent. God, its so hard.
I really feel like a lot of things are going well but so many thoughts inside my head are still nagging me. It’s quite possible that I forgot to do something.
The moral of this story is life has a lot of highlights. Can someone tell me how to get rid of the shitty parts?
If you’ve read this part, you should get a medal. Thank you again for your support awesome people. Please share your day below in the comments with me so I feel normal.
