Some Days I Want To…

…and not in the fun “YAY” sort of way.  Yesterday was one of those days.  On the outside I was CaLm, but inside I wanted to shout!   It started with fussy kids, spilling oatmeal on the floor, forgetting we had an appointment that morning and unfortunately spiraled out of control from there.  Sound familiar?

Some days I wonder WhYI try and do what I do.  The inevitable always happens…the kids spill juice on newly cleaned carpet or I get swamped with orders the week my husband is out-of-town.  Some days F E E L like I can’t catch a break!

To survive days like these I have to remind myself I am normal.  We all have rough days and despite our attempts at staying PoSiTiVe, don’t always end how we hoped.  Luckily those days don’t last forever, and when they do, I don’t have to be so hard on myself.  These days are NORMAL so give yourself a break!

Where are my skinny jeans?!

If you lived in my house you would know around the middle of every month I run around the house looking for my skinny jeans.  No matter how hard I look, they don’t seem to come up! I’ve come to the realization that even if I’m eating right or love my new hairdo, there will still be times I won’t feel like  a million bucks when I slip (okay squeeze) into my blue jeans.  That’s just the way it is sometimes.  I’m to the point now where I allow myself a FREE  PASS.  I know my jeans always turn up after a few days, so there is no need to be so hard on myself!  Of course if I’m feeling this way for weeks, months and then years…well, we all know that means I’m in a funk and you’ll need to help pull me out of that one ;)  BUT if this is just one of those days, I remind myself that A L L women lose their skinny jeans now and then and that I’m doing a-okay!

Oh the JoYs of being NoRmAL,
