no sleep will mess with you

By Tara Zandra | October 23, 2013

So yesterday while I was driving home from dance, a tire tread hit my car. I was concerned for the undercarriage but it all felt fine so I kind of forgot about it. Today in the daylight it occurred to me to actually look at my car. Yeah it’s pretty damaged. As far as I can tell, just cosmetic but the whole front bumper will need to be replaced and until it is, well, I have a huge, ugly dent on my car. You know, the car I’ve only had since January?

Last night I also got news that is good on one level, but on another very selfish level, made me sad. Why is it so hard for me to focus on the good aspect of the news and so easy to only pay attention to that little voice that makes it all about me?

Couple both of those with about 5 hours of non-quality sleep and it’s been a pretty shitty day emotionally. Which was not helped by spending 45-minutes in Joann’s and only 10 of those minutes did not involve being in a line and dealing with incompetence. One lady couldn’t cut or fold fabric, then they over-charged me by almost $30, then couldn’t figure out how to work the coupon. Just a huge annoyance and that was only 1 of 3 stops. By the time the girls and I got home we were D.O.N.E. for the day.

Hmm, a picture. I know, it was our bright spot of the day. We started off the ill-fated errands with a trip to Krispy Kreme. As always, I was coerced into taking a picture of Daisy’s food.

    Ah, Krispy Kreme! Heals all types of emotional issues! LOL I am SO HAPPY we now live less than 10 minutes from one up the road. Yeehaw! Sorry you had a sucky day!
