Life does happen sometimes you know.
I often get perturbed when I have a crazy bad day and someone will throw at me, "could be worse." Of course it could be freaking worse! I know those are good words to live by and yes life "could be worse" but darn it sometimes I may have a blue day and it's not the end of the world. Life isn't always sunshine and roses (even at Christmas time). However, again if I get down in the dumpsy I'd appreciate people just acknowledging it and letting me move on instead of the whole "appreciate what you do have."
This week the stupid couch wouldn't go down the basement. I have beautiful new furniture upstairs that I'm thrilled with. Downstairs I was planning on sending down our ratty 10 year old plaid set down and I bought two feasible lazy boy chairs that aren't the trendiest of items but match said plaid set nicely. We now have 2 ugly yet extremely comfortable chairs and I hath been given permission to buy new furniture; a real wife would be thrilled right? We ended up at a clearance center for another loveseat as we know they'll fit. So we have a power reclining loveseat waiting to be picked up. We'll see how lovely it looks. I keep telling myself it's just a basement. The whole couch deal really flipped my lid. I just didn't want to spend another $800 for a piece of furniture that I didn't want or really need in the first place. But that's life.
2nd piece of crap deal - Tommy has the flu fierce. He's been puking all morning. So now on Christmas Eve's Eve we have to worry about everyone getting sick. Could be worse right?
Joe and I were supposed to go out today and finish our shopping. He took the day off, I signed the kids up for childcare. It was going to be great. The whole day together. Once Tommy puked a second time I just saw the life sucked out of Joe. He was so depressed. Somehow Joe and I will get back in sync either both depressed together or so happy together and hopefully by some miracle no one will be sick the next few days. It's not looking too good though is it?
I guess maybe all I can do is cry...but I won't because it's not worth crying over because truly it "could be worse."
