Just One of Those Days…

  Today is just one of “THOSE” days.  First of all, I almost washed my face with hair gel.…..

See the bottles look alike. 


Don’t they? 


If you squint your eyes and pretend your half asleep? 

078 (2)

See, I told you! 

Wait, what do you mean didn’t I see the GIANT green leaf on the hair gel? 

Of COURSE you can see it right now, you are wide awake and staring at a carefully taken photo!  Imagine fumbling for it in a dim cupboard, half asleep.

Told ya.

  So, that’s the kind of day its been.  You know the kind….totally behind on all the house work, bills to pay, phone calls to return.  Still in your bathrobe at noon.  Kids seeming extra needy all morning.  Walking from room to room doing little projects here and there, but not appearing to accomplish that much, due to the chaos surrounding you. 

  The kind of day where you walk ALL the way from your bedroom to the laundry room, (at my house, this is a long walk) gathering things on the way, only to get out to the laundry room with a can of baked beans in one hand, the phone in the other, a naked baby doll tucked under your arm, 3 trucks in your pocket, and NO EARTHLY IDEA WHY YOU WERE HEADED TO THE LAUNDRY ROOM IN THE FIRST PLACE!

  Yup, it is that kind of day. 

  Paxton says it’s one of “those” days too….

  Dog-gone that backwards crawling, it gets him in all sorts of predicaments! 


  “MOMMA! Something is VERY wrong here! I can’t move!!!!!”


Help me?!”


Well, I should go now, I think I hear the phone ringing……and it appears to be coming from inside the refrigerator.

  Hmmm, wonder where I tucked that pasta salad?


  “This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad…”

  1. Wow. Amen, sista! It’s shaping up to be one of those weeks all the way around, isn’t it? You are such a blessing to me – thanks so much for making me feel normal, and calming my frazzled spirit! Hang in there, sweet girl! The pasta salad will reappear sometime… you’ll smell it sooner or later! 🙂 Maybe it’s with Kasey’s invite!

  2. Are you sure this shouldn’t be posted on my blog? With me as the author?

    When I’m having a difficult time with Mac, I always say, with a little sarcasm of course “Children are a gift from the Lord!”
    If a friend with their child is over they usually have a little chuckle, because of course we love our children…somtimes they just make us want to pull your hair out!

  3. Having to get up and get ready for work in the semi-dark while the hubby is still sleeping, I have had too many of those bleary-eyed moments that result in lessons of humility for the rest of the day 🙂 God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. And goodness knows, we sometimes seem to have a lot of trouble!

  4. Aaahhhh, I found my morning chuckle! 🙂

    Paxton is such a cutie–those blue eyes are a-mazing!

    Praying that the rest of your day goes better….and if not, that the Lord gives you a sense of humor to deal with whatever comes your way.
