September 6, 2016


when your husband gets angry because you forgot to turn off the extra alarm so that he could sleep

when your zipper on your dress breaks just when you're ready to walk out the door

when your shoulder is still so injured that you can't fasten the replacement dress on your own and have to ask for help

when you are already feeling behind in grading in week three

when you are in a holding pattern for the foreseeable future with finances

when you suddenly discover you have a host of unexpected errands to run after school, but then realize that the car is on empty and isn't going anywhere until you hit the gas station

when you need paperwork to be filled out for a Leave of Absence and discover that your idea of leave and the doctor's might not be the same, so you've got to come back AGAIN to pick it up after the office manager clarifies the time frame

when you send a check but they have to have cash

when you have to go to the bank to get cash, but thirty-five other people get there first

when you have to go to another bank to deal with unreasonable bank rules that are revictimizing your daughter, who is already having to replace every stolen item from her purse

when you realize that once again, the house isn't going to be picked up because OHMYGOODNESS this day has been a long line of irritants


sometimes, you just have to treat yourself to ice cream, chalk this day up to one to put behind you, and you have to remind yourself that even with the day you've just had, you have it pretty good.
