One of THOSE days

Email Me

Ever have one of THOSE days? You know the type I’m talking about. The kind that not just one thing goes wrong but a series of things go wrong, like someone says something offensive to you AND your kids decide that their way is just better…along with your bunk mate, Anxiety.

For the most part, you can deal with one or two “things” – we know by our age to get back up and brush ourselves off. And about 90% of the time, it works. But sometimes I feel like many “things” are a perfect storm.

I swear I can hear my mother’s voice, “this too shall pass Helena…” “yeah mom, I know, but I still have to live it!” She could never argue after that. We all know it’s true.

Big Girl Panties

So, what does a woman do to get herself out of a funk? My mother never told me about big girl panties. I learned about them when she was diagnosed with lung cancer. Never knew they even existed. Since my mom’s death, I have actually “loaned” the pair of panties to my friends who needed them badly – yes, I actually found a cut-out pair of pink panties – mailed them all over the place to whoever was in need.

Of course, a bad day doesn’t really qualify itself to wearing big girl panties, but I like knowing I have a pair in my back pocket just in case.

What do we do? Most of the time just knowing that tomorrow is an entirely different day usually helps me. The thought of running away puts my pity party on hold. Going through my daily routine is also helpful. I do talk to God, I admit. Wondering why me, why today? Giving thanks of course because I know if I didn’t have crap days it could possibly mean I wasn’t breathing. I think about my children who are out of the house, how lucky they are not to be here.

But by the time dinner is on the table, I am happy again. Alright, maybe happy is too strong a word here, I think content is more like it.

If you liked this little article, I would be grateful if you shared it with your friends.

  2. Hey great blog! Does running a blog such as this require a massive amount work?
    I have very little understanding of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog soon. Anyway, should you have
    any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please
    share. I know this is off topic but I simply had to ask. Thank

  3. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think of if you added some
    great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this blog could definitely be
    one of the very best in its niche. Terrific blog!

  4. What’s up every one, here every person is sharing these kinds of knowledge, so it’s pleasant
    to read this web site, and I used to pay a quick visit this blog

  5. Greetings, There’s no doubt that your site could possibly be having internet browser compatibility problems.
    When I take a look at your site in Safari, it looks fine
    however, if opening in Internet Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues.

    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up!
    Apart from that, wonderful blog!
