We’re just going to go ahead and ignore the fact that I didn’t post anything yesterday. Only because in actual reality, I did write, several things in fact, I just declined to push that pesky “publish” button.
Honestly, I wrote tons, tons and tons… on facebook chat. It counts.
I was simply having a Monday, disguised as a Wednesday type of day. I mean really, my day started with everyone waking up while it was still my “momma’s quiet coffee time”, then my mom called to inform me she had my dog’s ashes, then our “basement/farm” cat never came back from his nightly “romp” (he came back this morning), then I got a huge case of “nobodycaresaroundhereandI’mprettysuremychoresaregoingtoeatmealive”.
As I was crying it out on chat with a dear friend, I hear mad honking outside. I love how the UPS guy always drives through at the toddler’s nap time, and has to blast his dang horn to announce his arrival. So he pulls out a box, with a florist name on the side. And I seriously thought when a certain friend sent me a note about something special heading my way, that this was that, and I was seriously surprised.
So I lug the box inside, and open it up, to find my husband’s name on the card… and then I lost it. The day crumbled me into a mushy pile of tears.
I promptly grab my phone and text my husband, “You big jerk head.” Then I went to take a picture of the flowers, to send to him with a note on how his timing was perfect and made me cry…
But my phone died. Like dead died. Like wouldn’t function to save my life. All he got was, “You big jerk head.”
Yup. No joke. That was my day. Granted, hilarious by that point.
An hour later my phone was up and running, with a text, “That wasn’t the reaction I was expecting.” And by that point I was laughing hysterically, because there was nothing else to do.
Yes you may laugh at me now. 😉
And because obviously I need a new phone before I start some sort of world war with incomplete text, I’m having a “Day Before Chocolate Goes on Sale Day” Sale over at my Etsy shop, White Goat Ranch.
