The Terrible Horrible No Good Very Bad Day

I have always thought this is one of the best books ever. I don’t care that it is a children’s book. It speaks the truth. I can’t say I had a “Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day.”

I have decided that somehow I have entered a time  warp and landed in a parallel universe. truth be told I am having a terrible horrible very bad week.  Every time I think things are starting to get better life throws a curve ball and they get worse. I am about to really go into orbit.

I am trying every coping skill I have to remain peaceful and calm. I mean I consider myself to be a rational person. But I’m telling you what the Universe is really trying my patience this week.

The only reason I haven’t completely gone into orbit is because I know one thing if nothing else THIS TOO SHALL PASS. Besides I’m a bit of a competition hog and if JOB can  make it through and still keep praising GOD after all he lost I can keep on strutting with the little  petty curve balls being thrown my way. I told you I like to be first. So if JOB can do it and survive so can I.

There are probably a few people who think I might be a little touched because I have actually found myself laughing a couple times this week when someone has thrown their best fast ball at me. I keep thinking is that the best you got? Do you really think is going to break me? Nope so sorry I survived worse than that with one hand tied behind my back. I don’t break easy. But I am getting a little annoyed at this little game.

For reasons I can not explain I seem to be the person everyone turns to when they need a shoulder. Hello I am not Plymouth Rock. Go sit down somewhere have some quiet reflection and figure it out yourself. If I had wanted t be a therapist and listen to people’s problems I wouldn’t have majored in Sports Journalism. Though now days I could have really racked up as a sports journalist therapist. Some of these pro athletes really have some issues.

I could go into detail but then we’d be here all night and I only have 30 minutes to finish this blog write Pay it Forward for Friday and do a little farming on Farmville. I play the game with my aunt and I’ve been slacking on that too this week. I think she ordered carrots Monday and I still haven’t taken the 5 minutes it takes to click, plant, and fertilize the things. Just sad.

Oh well the weekend is coming and when I crawl into bed tonight I am going to watch the Boondocks and The Flintstones until I fall asleep, if I fall asleep, maybe even Despicable ME surely that will make me feel better. Tomorrow is a new day right? I may be down for a minute, but I’m never out for the count and never ever broken.

Michelle Obama’s Speech Trumps GOP Convention

Who could've predicted the words Michelle Obama spoke in 2008 at the Democratic National Convention would again hold us captive? This time the inspiring speech was again met with loud applause and approval despite starring in the mini series that the Republican National Convention has become. It looked like we may have a return to an American version of Camelot. Then the bubble burst.  This election season has been wild, and unpredictable. But this? Not a single crystal ball was tuned into Melania Trump  standing at center stage of the Republican National Convention delivering the words that initially made us fall in love fall with Michelle Obama. A lot can and has been said about the unfortunate turn of events that lead to Melania Trump borrowing part of her primetime speech from First Lady Michelle Obama.
