Re-do not allowed

Have you ever had one of those days you just really wish you could have a re-do or two, or twenty? Maybe it's just me, but there are some days that I just want to wake up again and start all over. Today is one of those days for me. It didn't start out bad, but as the day went on, it got progressively harder for me.

I knew today would be a long one, I had a lot to get done. I was expecting to be wiped out, but not so frustrated.

1) The BMV - Never been a huge fan of dealing with car stuff. It always seems to take forever and you have to deal with paperwork and such. My birthday is Sunday and so I needed to renew my license. Thinking it would be a piece of cake, I headed over and got in line. I get up to the BMV employee (who was SO helpful!) and let her know what I need. We soon realize this may be harder than we thought. My address never was changed in the BMV system and I didn't have anything with me that had my current address and name. I made a mad dash to the library to print off a statement, I get back and realize it's my flippin' maiden name. Run back over (it's right across the side road!) and print off another statement go back and get my license. It shouldn't have frustrated me so much, but it did, it took me longer than I had expected, I was frustrated at myself for not having what I didn't know I didn't need. I got it and all is well, but this didn't exactly put me in a chipper mood.

2) Dinner - I am half way through prepping the veggies for my chili to realize that it's a 2 hour low simmer dinner. It shouldn't take that long, no, but it did so the veggies could tenderize and so we decided to do Burger King - on the bright side, we have dinner for tomorrow!

3) My boo-boo: Ok this just really put the cherry on top. I cut my arm...not horribly, but pretty bad. I was playing with Parker pushing him in a clothes basket. I trip and fall forward, breaking the basket, the part that breaks caught my arm and cut a nice cut on it. Oh man....and I hurt my already bad knee.

I just have had it with a hard day. I am looking forward to a new day tomorrow. One where I will get to enjoy not only my son, but a dear friend's daughter! And chili!

God gives us new days....that's a good thing.

Ugh, those kinds of days are SO frustrating. Hope that your arm gets better soon!
