One of Those Days

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:54 am by chasingtoddlermom

UUUGH.  That pretty much sums up my day today.  I’m really posting just to vent.  Sometimes it’s just therapeutic to see my rants in black and white.

This has just been one of those days!  It started off with weighing myself.  I don’t get what is going on with my body!  My weight is just stuck.  Then, my baby woke up ornery and stayed that way all day.  I am trying to view it as a good reminder of how lucky I am that it’s not his permanent state of being (as it was for my colicky Little Ro’).  I spent the morning averting and diffusing various tantrums and aggressive outbursts.  Then I finally got out the door to Target (only 3 hours behind schedule).  I have a cart FULL of groceries and two kids when it hits me.  I don’t have a wallet!!!  UGH.  My dad ran to my rescue.  Bless his heart, he had a cake in the oven and he ran down to swipe his credit card and hurry back to his cake.

Then, when my DH came home from work (early–YEA!) I handed him a crying baby and took off out the door to the gym.  Aah–what a stress reliever that would be.  Joke’s on me.  The gym closed early for the state holiday today.  UUUGH.  I came home, got ready, and headed to my in-laws’ bbq.  All went well until my Little Ro’ decided to beat his little cousin over the head with an outdoor light.  Poor little girl has a huge bruise and dent in her forehead.  What is that kid thinking?!?!?!?!  I’m really stumped about what to do with him.

It probably doesn’t really sound that bad, but I’m exhausted–emotionally and physically.  Basically all day I was feeling fat and overwhelmed by my children and my own forgetfulness.  I think it’s time to go to bed and forget this day!  TGIF tomorrow!

    Oooh…. I’m sorry it was such a rough day! I have to say, I’m FLABBERGASTED that your gym has abbreviated hours for pioneer day. Did I mention that I’m flabbergasted?

    Also impressed that OSW-there was baking a cake! That’s a good man.

    So sorry Carrie! I think my day today was similar. PS my weight was totally stuck the whole time I was nursing – couldn’t drop the last few until I quit. Maybe that explains it? And PS – our gym doesn’t even close early on the 4th.
