I AM IN A GLASS CAGE OF EMOTION!!!

Today was one of those days...

I was in a rush to get out of my car and hurry away and all of a sudden my car is rolling down the frigging ever so slight incline. SSSSSSSHHHHHHIIIIIZZZZ! Imagine this douche running after her rolling car in stilletos. Insert people's laughs, my unmentionable swear words and a near broken ankle. Lift emergency brake. Cower my head and make no eye contact. Emergency brake genius. Emergency brake.

Back at home, decide to let the dogs out in the front yard while I ride my bike in front of the house. Bruno shimmies out of his chain and books it. Bianca, my half wit, takes off with him. Thank heaven I'm on the bike this time. I'm notorious in the neighborhood for always chasing after my dogs. I kept up with them for awhile and at one point jump off the bike and catch Bianca while Bruno is born free. Nice neighbor guy offers up his dog leash so I can get Bianca home. Bianca and I start towards home but she's not quite sure how to run next to the bike. Next thing I know, I'm airbourne and then planted on the ground. My cute basket is ruined and I think I encourage Bianca to go run onto a busy road BUT at least there's no blood. Get dog 1 home and then start the search for the 2nd. Finally get him home.

No food in my house. Ah...I hear the grocery store calling my name. I spent an hour at the store with my basket filled. Then I start to get emotional and feeling sorry for myself. I ditched the basket and came home...to ants in my kitchen.

ACK!

You should have at least grabbed the ice cream and ran. And if it makes you feel any better some poor single mom who is just trying to put food on the table had to stay late after work just so she could put all of the items in your abandoned cart back on the shelves....see, it could be worse.

OUCH!!! What a day! I feel for ya'... and believe it or not, it gives me some perspective. I have days I think are bad and none of them include chasing a dog and face-planting it on the pavement... OUCH!!!

Why didn't you call to vent or process or whatever? I could've grabbed something for you to eat AND kill ants!

You need your own reality show. I love my slightly used thong hand me downs! What do you want me to call you? (Besides "Daddy":)

Sarah, what's worse, the fact that I gave you unused underwear...or the fact that you trusted me enough to wear them????

LOL! I'm sorry you had a bad day, but that was a freakin' hilarious description of it!

If you hear about Imogen Heap in concert again, let me know! I SO love her! I'm so jealous you got to see her in concert!
