Mama said there’d be days like this.

I’m testing out a few Goldfish Crackers for “lunch”, it was the only thing I could find, on my 4th trip around the kitchen, mind you, that looked manageable. 

It’s one of those days.  I’m getting over a nasty bug, I missed a goodbye party for one of my favorite people ever, a former teacher of both boys, and, of course, we have issues to troubleshoot with Ben’s MACE and Mitrofanoff.   I’m missing another goodbye party tonight and a couple of days with friends to boot. 


I know things could be worse, Lord knows how much worse they have been. And I realize the timing of my sickness could have been worse, like while Mike and Hannah were gone for a week.  I know many people are truly suffering.   I know how to look at the bright side and cheer myself up, but sometimes I just don’t want to. 

Do you ever just want to have a solo pity party, just amp up the blues and whine a bit?  That’s how I feel today. 

I know it’s ridiculous, I know I’m being silly, and yes, I’m wallowing.

No, I won’t remain here, and yes, I’ll get back to being my positive self, but today is a day to pout. 

And my temp just went back up. I might not be as “over” this bug as I thought. 


One thought on “Mama said there’d be days like this.

  1. Hang in there, lady 🙂 I’ve made many a lap around my kitchen only to settle on goldfish crackers, too. Don’t beat yourself for having an off day, or getting run down. Sometimes a good night’s sleep and some fresh air bring the shift in perspective you need, without even having to try. I hope you’re feeling better!
