Today sucks.

I really need a do over. Or a hug. Or a cigarette (ew, never mind). Or a drink. Or...

First, it was pouring here this morning. And there's just no cooler thing than having to take a huge plastic garbage bag, cut along the sides of it to make a huge sheet of plastic, and rigging it up around your baby's stroller so that she doesn't drown by the downpour. Not cool. Meanwhile, by the time we finally make it down the street and to the car (um yeah, thinking about moving to a big city with no private parking, think about the rain and snow and 100% humidified 90 degree days!), I'm drenched from my head to my toes. But my baby girl remained dry as a bone so I guess I won. : )

Then I come to work and feel like I'm sitting a pile of shit all day because I'm doing work that I have no clue about. And regardless how much I try to understand what's happening, I don't... because it doesn't really pertain to me.  I just sort of take information that's given to me and supply it where needed. And now I'm the middle man and ... UGH.

I just need to be with my baby girl right now. So bad. She really is the cure-all to everything. God I miss that sweet face. ... This morning when I had her on the changing table, giving her kisses, she put her hand up to my face. She just held it there and didn't do one of her death grips which has become the norm lately. She gently touched my face as we looked into each other's eyes and smiled at one another. I gave her another kiss and kept my face super close to hers so she could keep touching my face and she lifted her other hand up and basically held onto my face.

I really need more of that, please. Stat.

(don't forget to vote if you haven't already)


  1. I hate mornings where it's raining and then nothing goes right after that. Hope your day gets better.

  2. ((Hugs)) to you!! Only a few more hours...I love the moment you described with you and Lovie (I had tears in my eyes). I really hope your day gets a little better or at least goes by a little faster so that you can get home to your sweet angel :)

  3. Well, at least you are featured on the d-list, right? I hope your day gets better.

    Stopping in from the D-List.

  4. Stopping by from the D-List. I'm sorry you're having such a bad day. I know all too well what the middle-man thing is like and it sucks!

    You have a great blog! I'm going to go check out more now. I hope your day gets better!

  5. Found you on the D-List, too. I hope your day got better, that feeling is one of the reasons I haven't gone back to work, but I'm gonna have to do something soon cause I'm not getting paid to hang out here and watch the baby sleep/eat/poop either.

    I never thought about the whole trash bag stroller cover, but have had to do that to make a "poncho" and keep myself dry before - lovely fashion statement, I guess.


speak your mind.
