The Awful, Terrible (Start to my) Day



  • Stumbled out of bed, walked across room and stepped on the dog who had decided to get out of his bed and sleep on the floor.


  • In the shower, dropped the soap, banged head on "product" rack as I bent to retrieve it. Very little blood.


  • Eyedrop in eye. No, missed eye, stained clean shirt.


  • Slopped coffee onto counter. At least I didn't spill it on my shirt-- like I did the day before.


  • Computer locked up before all the email was in the inbox. Just the first of probably five times today.


  • Frost all over the windows of the car. Scrapeity, scrape, scrape, scrape.


  • Stepped on pebble in front of post office, twisted ankle.


  • Mail? Junk, junk, bill, junk, bill, bill, junk, junk. Magazine BBBH reads. I don't.


  • Good news! Home safely with no car accidents.


  • Raisin bran with banana. Oops, milk is blinky. Fortunately, discovered this before I put it on cereal. Eat "dry" breakfast, wash down with coffee.
It's nine-thirty now. Have you had enough of my day?

The question is not have I had enough of your day. The question is have you?
Days like that make it difficult for us to practice 1 Thessalonians 5:18.

Chuck, and yet I am thankful that:

I was able to get out of bed and stand on my own two feet; I did not fall and the dog was uninjured.

I did not fall out of the shower onto the floor. (I have done that.)

I had another eyedrop for the eye, and the shirt will launder.

Plenty more coffee where that came from.

I have a computer at all, though one of these days, it is going to :"lock-up" for the last time.

Frost was not ice a quarter-inch thick.

Again, that I did not fall, and the ankle injury is minor.

Truly thankful I can still drive.

And that I did have the bran and banana and coffee.

And that God provides blessings for me more abundant than I will ever deserve.

Thanks, Chuck, for the reminder that I should in all things give thanks!

Your day is kind of like Alexanders "horrible, no good, very bad day." Maybe you should go back to bed, get up again, and start over.

I need to proof more - put ' between r and s. : )

Grace said...

I'm sorry for laughing...Really, I am...Good that no permanent damage was done (but the shower thing had to sting a bit, eh?)

Lin said...

I would have went back to bed after the spilled coffee. You are a brave, brave man!

Hope tomorrow is a better day!

Hey- any day that you catch the blinky milk BEFORE pouring it on the cereal is a good day!

vanilla said...

Vee, nah, I was up for the day. Proofing before hitting "enter" is not one of my strengths, either.

Grace, I am so glad you laughed. I hoped someone would find this amusing.

Lin, thanks. Not that brave; just do what we have to do.

Shark, you got that right. I have failed to catch it in time on occasion.

Shark, strange as it seems, two of us used to go through a gallon of milk in three days; now we don't get a half-gallon used before it expires.
Then added insult, 1/2 gal. costs about the same as a gal. and who can afford to buy it by the qt?

Aw, what a rough time! Ditto what Chuck said. Yeah, I have had those days, too. Hang in there. :)

Rebecca, I have blessings in such abundance that ingratitude would be inappropriate, even though aggravations arise from time to time!
