How Was Your Day?



Yesterday was ‘interesting’: It almost killed me.



First, I found out that my cholesterol levels are so screwed-up that my blood probably makes concrete look like wine. Lovely. The wine part.


Secondly, my thyroid gland is almost kaput. No wonder I haven’t been able to lose much weight, which brings me to…


Third, I have a dress to get into people!


Fourthly, I still have to complete the alter piece for our son’s wedding, which I am constructing in the room Ben stores all of his hunting/fishing equipment in, and, of which, he recently packed in the dark of the AM for a trip to some fancysmancy duck hunting killing event and was told later in the day that he looked very pretty with all the glitter on his waders.


Fifth, both our dishwasher AND hot water tank- tanked. Perfect.


Sixth, my housekeeper may be suffering from a nervous breakdown, which translates to ME suffering from her suffering.


Seventh, I found out that one of my best friends has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Holy Sh@#


Eighth, our son had sinus surgery yesterday. In New York. Without me there.


Ninth, our foster son called to tell me he had gotten married the day before, and…


Tenth, by the way, the bride is pregnant.


So now I’m feeling sharp pains in my chest and under my left arm, and my back aches.

If it’s not a heart attack, it means I need more wine. 

At least there’s some kind of silver lining.

  • Carol Cassara - Girl, that is the definition of a bad day, for sure. Take a deep breath and, well, I think a bit of wine is so in order. Wishing the best for everyone….and you.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - I feel shell shocked. My whole body aches.ReplyCancel

  • kymberlyfunfit - Isn’t there some way to blame all this on your husband? At least you might be able to get out of having to send a wedding and baby gift. Hope tomorrow goes a LOT better!ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Brilliant. I must create a fiction by where he takes all the blame and supplies the cooperation for an extended trip to Europe- by myself!ReplyCancel

  • Carollynn - Oh my lord, your day trumps the coming snow-apocalypse the NE is about to experience. All I can say is congrats on your newest family member…and be kind to your self.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - I’m feeling murderous- like I could whip that storm into submission.ReplyCancel

  • Roxanne Jones - A shit-storm day, for sure. But what really matters (IMO)? Your health (get that chest pain checked out!), and being there for your friend who’s been diagnosed with lymphoma. Nothing else is (potentially) life-threatening, just aggravating as hell.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - I would have used your glorious term Shit Storm but Facebook would have bumped the post. Just another thing that’s pissing me off today! But yes- I’m taking care of the medical issues and in touch with my friend. Thanks for the well wishes Roxanne.ReplyCancel

  • Carol Graham - I certainly have had my share of days like yours BUT the secret is to keep laughing – which you are doing so I applaud you. I trust tomorrow will be better for youReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - If I couldn’t find the absurd hilarity in all of this I WOULD be having a heart attack! Thanks for stopping by Carol. Appreciated.ReplyCancel

  • Nancy Hill - Are we living the same life?

    Keep on keeping on and remember to breathe.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - Ohhhh. Say it ain’t so Nancy. I don’t wish this on you. We’ll both breath- deal?ReplyCancel

  • Carpool Goddess - Oh vey! That would have nearly killed me too. At least you haven’t lost your sense of humor! I hope tomorrow is a better day.ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl - It’s the only thing that hasn’t left me.ReplyCancel

  • Jennifer McLaimtaig - Totally different list but similar sounding struggles in my life too! Hang in there 🙂 Jen from BMCReplyCancel

  • Bonnie K. Frogma - Oh my goodness. Good luck. Splurge a little on the wine, sounds like you’ve earned something a few steps up from E&J!ReplyCancel

  • Elaine Ambrose - I think you win. I can’t compete with that!ReplyCancel

  • Caroline Topperman - Wow! I can’t speak to everything but with regards to 1 & 2, I have been struggling with them for the past two years and I can say that you can lose weight and that your cholesterol will go down (and so will the triglycerides) and you will get into that dress!

  • Lois Alter Mark - Some days you just need to get back into bed and start fresh the next day. I hope everything works out in every single area 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Mari Collier - Calm down, and take care of yourself! Please follow recommendations on the throid. I’m one of the lucky ones. Kelp works for me, but I found that before the thyroid was almost destroyed. If I don’t take the kelp tablets, I gain two pounds a week. Thrilling. Go light on the wine. Hugs.ReplyCancel

  • Laura Ehlers - oh my! If you get the right amount of thyroid replacement medication and wash it down with a nice cabernet, I believe you will find the energy to accomplish the tasks you have to do and the calmness to forget the ones you don’t want to do!ReplyCancel

  • Paul D. Brads - At least there is a silver lining.ReplyCancel
