Ever have one of those days, the ones where EVERYTHING seems to go WRONG! Well, I certainly did yesterday.
Getting up first thing in the morning I ran smack into a wall trying to avoid stepping on one of my cats on the way to the bathroom. I am happy to report I missed the cat entirely, the wall not so much. I stubbed my big toe and broke it open. OUCH! I havenít done that in years but it served as a reminder of how painful it is to do. And it should have been a clear warning to me on how my day was about to unfold. After bandaging my wound and getting dressed, I ventured forth to the kitchen to heat a cup of water for some tea. The microwave had other plans however and exploded, water going everywhere. I took a very deep breath, cleaned up the mess and tried to decide what to have for breakfast. I wasn't really hungry so I settled on a Slimfast. I took the can from the refrigerator, opened it, placed it on the kitchen table and went to get the newspaper. Moments later I forgot I had opened the can and absentmindedly went to shake it again. You guessed it; chocolate hit me, the table, wall, kitchen counter and floor. I sat there in utter disbelief for a minute and wondered what next? I cleaned myself and things up and left the house to walk the dog. I wasnít but four houses away before I stepped in a pile of dog poo. Fortunately for me my dog had already relieved herself so I rather quickly returned home. I go to clean off my foot and shoes in the bathroom and drop one of my shoes in the toilet. Feeling completely frustrated at this point I am now in tears but eventually I calm down. After lunch I went downstairs to my craft room to finish the last of the pumpkins I was painting for my grandson. There I succeeded in spilling black paint all over me, my work desk, not to mention the CARPET! Yes, I was definitely on a roll. I guess it is a good thing replacing the carpet in the house is on my To Do List. My day continued on with mishap after mishap. I left my wallet at the grocery store and had to run back to get it. I picked up the wrong over the counter medication for the husband. I even managed to get stung on the hand by a flying something. Not sure if it was a bee, wasp, yellow jacket or hornet. All I saw was the stinger which I removed promptly and felt the instead PAIN which lastly quite a while, several hours in fact. I havenít been stung since I was a 7 or 8 so I took some Benadryl to be safe and put some hydrocortisone cream on it. Later on I scorched dinner, horribly I might add and ended up eating a peanut butter sandwich because I forgot to pick up deli meat when I was food shopping earlier. And last but not least, I tripped over the dog on my way to bed which was not fun for either one of us. No broken bones. However I still canít figure out how I can miss a cat but not my 65 lb Labrador, or the bedroom wall earlier in the day? Hummm I guess I aim BIG!
In hindsight, I should have just stayed in bed!!
