It's Like The Book

Did you ever read that book as a kid, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?

I'm having one of those.

I woke up tired and feeling like I had a cold coming on, I was late getting to work, I got swamped with projects, I developed a splitting headache, I looked at my credit card statement, I forgot to pack lunch so I had to settle for a granola bar and a yogurt that I had stored in the office fridge, I snapped at my co-worker, and then someone made a mean comment about this here blog. Also I'm getting a pimple, and that really sucks (and it's only 12:30).

If I seem irritable and irrational, well, I am. My mood is swinging like a pendulum, so I'm out of sorts and this can make me a little "difficult". I just hate feeling!

Also I'm really sensitive, so that anonymous comment hurt my feelings. I know it's stupid and that I shouldn't be so defensive, but the truth is that I'm still hurt that William I-Forget-His-Last-Name-Something-Italian chose to sit next to Robin I-Forget-Her-Last-Name-Too instead of me during lunch in fifth grade. I may put on a sarcastic front but I'm as soft as pudding on the inside. 

I'm just feeling sorry for myself. Luckily I have Oreos and Firefly (Captain Tightpants makes everything better) at the ready for just this type of terrible, horrible, no good very bad day.


  1. I am so sorry you are having one of those days!! I wish I could bake you some brownies, take you Belize or take to you Flatbreads for pizza. This is where I used to go when I was having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
    Or we can just go to Australia. *hugs*

  2. Sorry you are having such a bad day. Don't allow mean spirited people to affect you in a negative way, they are not worth the time or effort. I am with the above on making brownies for the Canadian LOL

  3. Boo for bad days!~ I do remember that book and I use that sang every once in a while! Do something for yourself tonight when you get off work to make your evening a little brighter!

  4. Totally love that book and often think of it myself on a bad day!! I can't believe someone left a mean anonymous comment!! That is so awful and uncalled for. Can't people just be QUIET if they can't be nice?! Sheesh. I'm very glad you have some Oreos to go home to...they can fix a multitude of wrongs, in my opinion. Hugs!

  5. Sorry you're having a bad day! I hope the Oreos help. And that tomorrow is a million times better.

  6. Anonymous mean comments are the worst! But surprisingly the more you get the less it bothers you...bright side? :)

    I hope you have a big tummy dinner tonight!

  7. I hate, hate those days. I totally understand how disappointing it is to forget your lunch. It's the highlight of my day! All I can say is, make this weekend special for yourself in order to counteract today.

    p.s. How does that book end??

  8. YUCK - nobody should be leaving you mean comments. you freakin' rock!! i'm so sorry you had a bad day, janet! i hope this weekend brings only happiness. <3<3<3

  9. I hope the rest of the week was better!!
