A series of unfortunate events kicked off an evening that left me screaming Edvard Munch-style in my car today.

1. Stayed at work too long, creating a panic with my daughter who needed a ride to dance.
2. Got a Kohl's bill for $80...even though I just overpaid a bill with a $100 gift card and should have had a negative balance...
3. While panicking on the phone with poor Moby who was clearly overseas, I get a similarly panicked text from my daughter: I forgot my jazz uniform! Can you bring it stat?!
4. Hung up on poor Moby, who was quite sure that I made no $100 payment -- no record of it, sorry -- to search daughter's closet for jazz uniform. Find it.
5. Drove to dance while screaming favorite obscenities from the stress of a non-existent payment. (This is actually quite therapeutic.)
6. Got home, shaking with adrenaline, and considered mad-bingeing on all sorts of demonic foods like Chips Ahoy cookies, peanut butter from the jar, and potato chips.

Then I got ahold of myself. Breathe. Breathe.

Your daughter got her jazz uniform before she needed it.
You paid $100 on your husband's Kohl's card, not yours.
You can have three Chips Ahoy cookies and then suck it up.

Breathe.

It worked. I'm okay. (And those three cookies were amaze-balls!)

So I've tracked my day, I've got 400 calories left to consume, and I'm going to do yoga for my workout. Lord knows I need it!!
