you know it's going to be a long day when...

  • In the first morning of upstairs bathing for the remodel, the smoke alarms go off. At 5am. There is no fan in that bathroom, and the steam set the suckers off. (The alarm in el bano is linked to the alarm in S's room.) Poor M was dripping wet from the shower, dismantling the smoke alarm. I am happy he wasn't fried.
  • You wake up freezing because you accidentally set some sort of crazy program on the thermostat when updating the clock from the time change. It was 60 degrees in the house this morning. It is 32 outside. Not a great combo...especially when I have clearly contracted S's cold.
  • When making coffee to try to warm up, you accidentally hit yourself with the scoop of coffee thereby spilling it all over the floor and then you whack your head against the cabinet when getting out the dustpan to clean it up.
  • You are worried that the backache you've been experiencing is not actually a backache but something internal because as Miss Clavel would say, "Something is not right."

Oh, honey, buck up! It can only get better, right, right???

The coffee thing happens to me all the time - except with cat food.

Here's hoping the universe rights itself in your neck of the woods.

Oh, dear. Let's hope you've filled your crap quota for the week and everything else will go amazingly well....

p.s. the word verification for this post was "stopit". Coincidence? I THINK NOT.

Oh, sweetie, I'm so sorry to hear it's been such a rough day already! Let me know if you need anything...otherwise, um, nothing personal, but we may stay clear of the wreckage that seems to be surrounding you today.
