Caroline's Terrible, Horrible, No-Good, Very Bad Day

I try to be positive. I really do. But sometimes, I think life makes it nearly impossible. Nearly. Yesterday was one of those days. I started off in a pretty rotten mood, resulting from a culmination of stresses that had not been resolved from the night before (you know that saying about don't let the sun go down on your anger, it's there for a reason. Note to self.) So of course, I have to keep the world updated on my mood swings, and I start my facebook status morning off with "Caroline M... is having a hard time."

Now, I should have known better. Maybe I was asking for it. Murphy's law or something. Some things were minute, unimportant annoyances, but others were bigger than that, and a few somewhere in the middle..

-I lost my wallet. Tore the apartment up looking for it. And no luck. So my husband let me borrow his debit card to do some shopping.
-Which I lost.
-And as for that shopping...you can see my post on that here.
-I needed a specific card stock, and has to traipse all over town (3 different stores) to find it. Geez, it's just paper, but it took 2 hours to find.
- I then find out that a close friend has a miscarriage at 12 weeks. My heart breaks for them. I know Baby M was very well-loved for his/her short life.
- I knock my $600 camera off of my desk, and the lense breaks. We don't have the money to buy a new one.
- I get a phone call saying that my uncle has had a heart attack & as in the hospital.
- And to top it all off, David drops my iPhone on cement and cracks the screen.

It was a bad day. Maybe I never should have gotten out of bed. I'm no Pollyanna. But somehow, I survived. Today is a new day. I woke up to Dmitri's sweet smile, and it doesn't get much better than that. I hope it foretells of better things to come.

I'm still here.

It all seems to just pour on us in one single day.
That was a lot for one busy momma to handle, I hope you have an easier time today!!
and the little one's laugh/smile always make for a little refresher!
Yay for babies!

I hope today is better! I know it isn't worth much, but sometimes the bad days come so we can appreciate the good ones a little more. Little baby smiles are definitely a good way to start!

Oh booo! But as horrible as your day was, I truly believe that its those kinds of days that make us able to deal with the little things from day to day. If you can get through a day like that, you can get through any day, ya know? I hope today is better, which it kind of almost HAS to be. Hang in there girlie. Go get yourself that onesie.

Man, that was a horrible day! You are definitely in my prayers - I hope you can have supportive people around you to deal with the bigger things (your uncle and your close friend). The little things just add to the stress of the big things. I hope today is a better day!

I'm SO sorry you had a cruddy day! Your yesterday sounds like my TODAY! I'm hoping that my list of oopsies isn't long, and that maybe it's just my mood that's broken and angry.

I'll be sending you ~~~~HAPPY!!~~~~~ vibes today!

I had a bad day yesterday too. I'm so sorry. Especially about your friend and uncle. Keep your chin up!

Sarah said...

Ick. Sounds like an awful day. I hope that the rest of the week goes by much better- or at least uneventfully.

designHER Momma said...

Tomorrow - will be better. Because really, how could it not be?

Haven and Home said...

I am sorry you had a bad day, when it rains it pours! Hope the rest of your week in much better!

Katie said...

When it rains it pours. I am so sorry you have had a bad day, but just think it will be better tomorrow because it can't possibly get worse.

Mandi Miller said...

When Sean and I read about your day on Facebook we were like "Wow! That is one bad day!"
I hope your days are better after that one!

Cindy said...

Oh my gosh, what a crazy day. When things get like that really try to focus on the positive things. Because the more you stress the worse your day will seem to get. I hope your uncle is ok.

Unknown said...

I think we have all had those kind of days. (not that it makes you feel any better when your going through it.) Hope it's better soon.
