Oh what a beautiful morning…(not)

on February 16, 2010

Have you ever had one of those days where you wish you could just crawl back in bed and start all over again? I had a one of Those Mornings today. Started out overhearing a wingdinger of a fight between neighbors above me. I waited around to be sure they were ok, so got out late. Then I couldn’t get the ice off my windshield. Every time I thought I scraped enough off, the sunlight glared off the remaining ice and blinded me. Took me three times to make the road visible. :P When I finally managed to see enough to drive, I accidentally ran over a huge bag of trash some lovely neighbor had left in the middle of the parking lot. I had to stop my car, crawl halfway underneath, and drag the bag out. There was a lovely long trail of trash strewn out behind me. Yeah. Nice.

I finally get out of the driveway and promptly get stuck in the worst traffic. Ever. By this time I am totally stressed out. Especially since I am now very late for work. I HATE being late!

I pull into the parking lot and try to collect my wits about me… only to knock my head half off as I exit my vehicle. By this time I’ve decided that my day was officially ruined. As in, over. As in, please-let-me-just-go-home-because-this-day-is-not-worth-living, ruined.

As I climbed the steps to the clinic, though, the hilarity of it all suddenly struck me. The day could hardly get worse. It was the worst in recent memory, for sure. So I did what every self-respecting girl does at such a moment.

I laughed my head off. :lol:

Then I walked in to work and got a big hug from Ms. Ruby. And my day promptly proceeded to improve from then on out.

You know what? It was a great day. :D

Moral of the story: just because the day starts off like it’s going to be The Worst Ever doesn’t mean it has to end that way. Laughter does much to soothe the tormented soul. ;)

“Being happy doesn’t mean that everything is perfect. It means that you’ve decided to look beyond the imperfections.”

Or in my case, all the minor catastrophies. :lol:
