The day started off normally enough. I usually have an inkling when it's going to be one of those kind of days. You know what I'm talking about.
Usually the first clue is when my clothes don't fit properly, just sets me off on the wrong foot. This has been a serious omen from childhood when I would obsess over the seams in my socks. In case you are wondering the seam had to go over the top of my toes, not under the toenail line (never there!) and the seam couldn't be too thick. I was very serious about this and there are several childhood meltdown stories centered around this. Anyway, yesterday my clothes fit just fine, cute even, so I couldn't have possibly seen it coming.
Then things started to go wrong...
First I forgot to put sunblock on my left arm and it was sunburned.
The day quickly became sticky hot.
Cordelia discovered the dog water bowl...I think you can guess where that ended (or continues).
Cordelia was pretty much on a mission to hurt herself and I was just pleased to avoid serious injury.
There was other stuff too.
Then Eric was side swiped in our car. He was just fine, but it doesn't look good for Empress Shasta, our car.
Now before you think I am complaining just hold yer horses (FYI: I live in Wyoming, I can say that).
You see it was one of those kind of days, but it just didn't really matter...at all. Maybe our car is totaled. Maybe I will get skin cancer from my sunburn (hopefully not), but there were so many good things about yesterday.
My right arm was not sunburned.
We have fans so the heat was easily controlled, plus it was just another excuse to have pink lemonade.
Cordelia was so happy to play in the pond of dog water on the floor. I was a little grossed out by the water to Bumblebee drool ratio, but she just loved it.
Cordelia wasn't hurt and I am quickly honing my protective mother skills.
The other stuff doesn't matter.
Eric was not hurt at all in the car accident and that is the most important part of all!
So you see it's all about perspective and it was a great day to have some perspective, thank goodness.
