Rough days help us appreciate the good ones… 

What a shit show of a day…

and yet I am still going to bed and a smile on my face… even if mascara was smeared with tears and my eyes are exhausted and body weak, I keep my cheeks held up in a smile because just as I’ve always done before, I’ll take a deep breath and survive whatever life has to throw at me…

 


Last night I ran out of gas about a mile, maybe less from my home and ended up walking the rest of the way… my own fault, poor planning and horrible budgeting after Mexico… This morning I started my day out by getting ready to walk to get gas and my jeep but I was blessed with my sweet friend Allison who picked me up and helped me instead… another blessing was receiving money that was owed to me… she will probably hate me for mentioning her but I’m going to anyway… Jaclyn I really do appreciate what you did and having the conversation we had and look forward to our fresh start…

because of their kindness I was able to get Jj to her dentist appointment on time…


Dropped her off at school, ran to my own follow-up doctors appointment(something they could have just called me on the phone for!) and made it back home in time to have some much needed 1:1 girl time with my amber bamber!! I made a fabulous late lunch that I had planned on feeding to my littles for dinner. Felt like I was doing great! Had it all cut up and ready to reheat when I had to run up to the school to braid cheer hair and drop chloe for the bus… I get back to the house to find the entire plate of chicken gone 😳😳😳


Bentley… you are so lucky I love you and that you are otherwise such a good dog!!! Rushed the littles through doing their homework, did some more cheer hair for the littles and flew out the door to drop Lexi off at youth group and grab some impromptu lunchables for dinner and kinetic tape for Chloe’s wrist that randomly decided to click…. and then I was off hopefully fast enough to make it right on time…  then that little orange light turned on the second I hit the highway… shit! With all my running I forgot to stop at the gas station to fill my tank 😩 #fail made it to Sparta with no gas station in sight all the way there and 3 minutes to spare before the competition started…

 


Girls did great and I made it to the gas station right after… What a relief!! Stuck on the side of the road with my two littles was not where I wanted to be tonight!!!  I was headed home to tuck the littles into bed when I got a text from Chloe “10 min”….bus is usually rather slow so I normally get the littles settled and then head back to grab her from the bus…. but instead I just went straight to the school…. and BAM!!!


Ball joint exploded and took out all in it’s path… break fluid was everywhere! …luckily it didn’t happen on the high way or even on my way back to the house… because where I landed (blocking the entrance to SLHS) was such a blessing since all the cheer moms where there to pick up the girls and Michelle she knew just what to do!! Once Jerry picked up the girls I burst into tears and succumbed to the weight of everything on my shoulders…

Lots of hugs from people I love and am happy to call my cheer family made me feel a little better. Kurt from lakeside took some more weight of my shoulders at least for tonight and told me just to call him in the morning and we will get it all figured out! Quick call to my dad and finally it was last call on those stupid tears that were falling. God all the girls tucked into bed… and now it’s time for me to also rest my head….

Tomorrow is a new day. A better day. A day today will make me appreciate. Oh how blessed I am with family and friends and the things that really matter in this world.

Screw you bad luck you’re not going to steal my smile and you can’t change this new attitude, nice try but this chick is no victim of circumstance just a damn good survivor  😝
