The Perfect Storm

You know those days when events coincide so perfectly badly as to become the perfect storm


It's not a lot of fun in there...



Alpha's unexpected return the job left me with loads of tedious work taking hours a day:

"I'll never be done."
 

I was starting to feel a little bit like this:

"I think I may be going crazy..."


I got my period, so I all I wanted to do was this:

"Just let me die in peace."


Then my son turned into this:

No shit, really--he did! I was shocked too.


My initial reaction was this:

"What did you just say (over and over and over again)?"

So I tried some of this:

"You had better straighten up right now young man!"



After hours. And hours. And hours. And freakin hours, I'm pretty sure I turned into this:

"Kid, you are lunch!"

Then Alpha called to inform me that he needed to change his schedule, so we would not in fact, get one day together in this two week time period.
So my brain did this:

"WHAT?!"

At some point in the day, I may have done this:

"The Universe hates me!"

By evening, this was my general outlook on the world:

"So that's how it's going to be huh?"


I needed some of this:

"Just hold me and love me and make it all go away!"


Or maybe something more like this...

"Now will you beat me until the world disappears, pretty please?"


But who has time for all that when they're quite occupied by building on of these:


Nice place I got here right? There's coffee. But you can't come in.


But he was super sweet so it seemed kind of pointless. Even if I did have a monopoly on the coffee supply. So I went to sleep.

And here I am this morning:

Another day, here I come.

Seriously, that perfect storm thing is crap. If another one comes along today, I'll end up looking like that possessed woman in the Exorcist--my head might even turn all the way around.

      Wonder if we could do a combined, "overthinkers anonymous/storm survivors" club...

  10. Lil, I've had those days & I've never seen it expressed so well! When they ask hoe I feel, I'm gonna point them this way :) (((hugs))) I know exactly how you feel, and I may be joining you soon - we're waiting on word if Ward will deploy soon - sigh - it's too hard without them, but you can stop by for pumpkin bread and chai - we'll commiserate.

      hmmm, printables so we could just point to the sign when someone asks...

      I can't imagine how difficult it must be for you when he deploys.
      I'm all over that pumpkin bread and chai.

  12. My mother always told me she was going to be reincarnated as a crocodile, so she could lay her eggs and walk away. Science has dis-proven that, she actually hangs around and protects the nest. Me? I'm coming back as a cowbird. Lay my egg in someone else's nest, and fly away. That way the little bastards won't give me indigestion.

    I love this post,lil. I'm so sorry you had a crappy day. I sincerely hope today is better.
