The no good, very bad day

Today started out good. I slept until 7:45 and made blueberry pancakes for breakfast. But it was all downhill from there. The girls were grouchy, which in turn made me grouchy. Somehow though, I still managed to take us to the grocery store. We got home, and as I started putting things away, I realized that there was absolutely no room in the freezer - and I had lots of frozen stuff to put away. So, I started to "purge" - throw things away that we were never going to eat. There was a 1/2 eaten carton of ice cream left over from G's birthday last month, and I tossed it into the kitchen sink a few feet away. Maybe because I was angry, I over threw it. As it went through the air, I could tell it was bad. It was headed for a cute little pot with flowers that G had made me. I was sure it was going to hit the pot and break - and sure enough, as it carton of ice cream landed I heard a shatter. I was sick to think I'd broken the pot - but as I inspected the damage, I realized it was far worse:



Thats right. I BROKE THE WINDOW! Somehow a carton of ice cream broke my window.

I felt like crying, and probably would have if my phone hadn't rung at that exact moment. It was my mom calling from vacation in California. I really needed to talk to an adult, and pretty much just zoned out. I barely noticed Brynlee running around naked - until she had a potty accident on G's carpet.

That is when I did start to cry.

Think I need anger management classes.

Oh that is awful! I am so sorry! I hope that one day you will be able to look back on it with a grin. Just think, you chucked ice cream, to throw it out. I would have eaten it all up! Way to go.

I guess we just have to have those crappy days to make us appreciate the boring and uneventful days! I am so sorry, cuz I know what that feels like. Believe me I had one yesterday!

Oh man I do stuff like that all the time without really thinking. There are many things that have disappeared from this house due to my lack of managing my anger.

Hahaha, if throwing a carton of ice cream is the worst you've got, you are practically a saint. And I think you must have particularly thin windows.
