When I have a bad day, I go big. Everything seems compounded and it doesn’t seem like I can do anything right. But at least the day is ending and I’m sitting here with my first meal of the day and a glass of wine. Delaying my pump until 2am.
First, my car is still in the shop. I was promised it would be done by Wednesday and it might be, but I wouldn’t know because they wouldn’t answer the phone or call me back. Hopefully I can get my car tomorrow so that we have a car seat and can actually venture out of the house this weekend. Although maybe I shouldn’t.
I didn’t get to eat any food today. I ran around work all day today. Trying to gather information, get people talking, solve some problems. Instead problems kept adding up.
I was an hour and a half late to pick up pumpkin from day care (my mom). Thankfully she was very nice about it, but still felt horrible.
Pumpkin was sadly in quite a mood tonight. She didn’t want to play while I pumped. So I cut out my pump (and I missed a pump at work). Made her dinner which at first she didn’t want until after she got into a crying fit. I finally made her laugh and smile only to have her throw herself forward right into my top teeth. Cue hysterical crying again.
Husband got home late and was able to cheer up pumpkin who came out and played with us while we ordered in dinner. She went to bed uber late, but at least she fell asleep right away.
The night ended on a good note. We watched Castle, opened up a good bottle of wine and enjoyed a good dinner…until I fell asleep and missed the ending.
It just feels that there are some days as a working mom where it all goes downhill. All I can seem to do is call the day a scratch and start over the next. What are some tips you have when it seems like everything is going downhill fast? Are you able to stop the snowball affect?
