Yesterday really was a terrible awful no good day!
I have been missing LLF bad this week -- and we're not seeing each other this weekend.
So yesterday I decided that sitting around missing him wasn't gonna cut it anymore. Get busy I told myself.
So I dragged out the ladder and the bucket and the cleaning solutions. Pulled the furniture out of the living room and decided to wash the walls -- wash the floors -- vacuum the furniture - in other words start spring cleaning. Keeping busy would take my mind off how long 10 days really are.........
In the moving of the furniture I forgot the vase filled with river rocks..........
on the bright side I didn't have to clean the vase or wash the river rocks.
I got the living room done by mid afternoon -- the dining room was kinda staring at me (it is just off the living room and shares a common wall) I thought to myself 'tomorrow' I was tired ...... (never mind the physical work -- but it's been days since I had a full night's sleep)
BUT -- the dining room kept calling my name. So I decided to clean out the china cabinet -- wash all the glasses and crystal -- polish the mirrored back and wash the glass shelving.
I got the first half done and was putting the shelf back in when -- I have no idea what happened -- but the middle shelf on the other side came crashing down.......
If I wasn't so shocked I would have sat down and cried. I managed to get everything out and survey the damage -- broken brackets -- broken shelf -- broken figurines and chipped crystal.
I gave up and cried. and cried. and cried.
Then LLF came on line and I sat down to tell him my news when I realized I was bleeding all over the keyboard... on top of everything else I managed to slice my finger and my hand on the broken .... whatever -- I have no idea what I cut myself on.
And I started crying again. I felt like I couldn't win for trying.
Some days are terrible awful no good days....... and yesterday was one of them.
