I have come to realization that having a bad day around here equates to taking the night off from cooking. Now that I've caught on, I'm thinking I may want to have a bad day or two a bit more often.
Exhibit A: After a horrendous day on Monday that involved a Non-Napping Toddler, An Awful Experience With Customer Service and culminated in the Stepping In Of Toddler Poop While Barefoot, I begged and pleaded with The Husband to bring home Chipotle. Loyals, that was the best bean and rice burrito with extra guac and extra, extra sour cream that I have ever tasted and The Husband didn't bat an eyelash.
Exhibit B: After yet another terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day (which you can read about here) that involved yet another Non-Napping Toddler (do you see a theme here?), Patience-Losing, Cursing and Husband-Wifely Arguments via Text Message, I begged and pleaded and may have even cried a little so that the Husband would bring home sushi for dinner. Extra spicy, deliciously crunchy, over-priced but ridiculously delicious sushi. And that he did.
So, Loyals? The moral of the story? When you have a bad day, cry and moan about it a bit and beg The Husband to bring home take-out. It was the best decision that man has ever made. You know, second to marry me, of course.
Thanks so much for all of your sweet words on yesterday's post. I'd really love to write up a little something about what so many of you said, reminded me and the wise words you left for me. Little ditties like "If you didn't have DOWNS you would never have UPS and mediocre is never any fun," and "Bad days are inevitable but coming out of them alive is what counts," and even, "All we can do...is do better."
Another favorite was, "They still love me and I hope their therapists get paid well when they are adults."
So many of you are brilliant, brilliant women and I'm so thankful to write for a community that shares support (and drink offers) so freely and liberally. You each left words that so many of us moms, wives, fiancees and just plain, downright women need to hear each day. So, thank you!
Happy Thursday, Loyals!
