Easy, Breezy, Nothin!

Do you ever have days where everything is just…well hard!?  You know, your day starts with not waking up on time because you hit the snooze button, like, forever…and then you show up late to your first meeting, which then has the waterfall effect on the next meeting, which you rush out of to make it to your lunch appointment only to find out that the other person had it on their calendar for next week rather than this week…I think by now you are beginning to get the picture of how my day was going thus far.  Oh, but it gets better:  I had a million things to get done and only about five of them got finished.  I came in the door of my home to try and get to work when I was hit with the WORST stench in the world.  It was like rotten, stinky, I don’t even know what nastiness!  I yelled out “Ashley what the heck???” She called down the stairs to me “Oh, sorry mom, I left my ‘hottie pumpkin’ in the house for too many days and it went rotten.”  (FYI, her hottie pumpkin is the pumpkin that her and her friends bought together and then they proceeded to write the names of every hot boy on it…teenage girls…what can you do?).  A ROTTEN Pumpkin by the way is about the nastiest smell ever!  So now I had to get on my computer and try not to breathe the rancid fumes in the air so I could place the massive order for new furniture for my new office.  After hours of picking everything out and getting my shopping card totally loaded up I went to place my order thinking to myself “Finally, I got something major accomplished” only to hit the submit button on the website and have it come back with an “XML error”.  SERIOUSLY!?!  “X your L” is what I wanted to scream at my computer!   You had to be kidding me.  All my hours upon hours of picking out every last piece only to have their system crash at 11:15pm when it is too late to call their company and do anything about it.   ARGGGHHHH!!!!  In the background I can hear a TV commercial saying “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful…”  and all I can think is “Easy, Breezy, Beautiful, my hiney!!!”

Okay, I just have to tell you that I suddenly feel so much better now that I was able to vent to all of you and get it out.  Ahhhh, it is like a breath of fresh air just blew in the window to lighten my spirits and blow my troubles away.  It is amazing what a little vent session can do for you once in a while.  Especially when you can do it to good friends who you will know will laugh and cry with you and still love you when you are finished…at least I hope you still love me after all of that venting J.

Well tomorrow is bound to be much better than today has been.  So I am off to climb in my bed where I would be scared I might have nightmares about the great pumpkin who has rotted away to produce a nasty stench in my house, except that wouldn’t be a dream at all because it’s Ashley’s freaking hottie pumpkin and its already haunting me!!! Thanks a bunch Ashley!!!

Yes, life is far from Easy, Breezy somedays.  But what I will say is that despite the rough patches, Life is ALWAYS BEAUTIFUL!

    It makes life interesting to go home after having a day from the “hockey stick” location but when you hit the front door or like me step out of the car and your son or daughter does something that just makes you go oh my and puts a small smile on your face. I had similar experience on Monday with my son and it just put a smile to my face…. it was a bad smell but how he explained was awesome and I had a smile.

    Sorry Amy that you had a bad day yesterday! I also had a horrible day yesterday and it continued to get worse as the day progressed 🙁 Needless to say today is a new day and my theme song is “Firework” by Katy Perry. Today I’m going to let my colors burst!!! I believe it me even if no one else does 🙂 Today is going to be a great day for you, your going to make it great!!!

    Oh Amy… As always, your “realness” is refreshing! It’s nice to hear that even “Super Woman” has a bad day now and then 🙂

    Thank you for venting! It does help to vent sometimes. The funny thing is other people’s venting can help make others feel better, too. A reminder that it’s okay we all have our moments. Venting allows us to let go and move forward. Thanks for lifting my spirits! Even through a rough patch!
