It's not you, it's me

Have you ever had one of those days where you go to the grocery store for the second time in as many days just to get some strawberries because the last two were eaten this morning and you need them for tomorrow because that's what your daughter eats on her cereal every morning?

And for the second time in as many days the store is out of strawberries because they are selling them at a very good price which begs the question why didn't they order enough of the strawberries so they wouldn't keep running out of them?

And you say to yourself, "self, it is okay since you need to go to the other grocery store that is just up the street to get some of that yogurt your daughter likes so much. And the reason you go there to buy said yogurt is because they sell it for half the price than the store you are currently at and perhaps they will have some strawberries there.

So away you drive, sans strawberries, but full of hope that you will find them at your next destination, and you do! You do find them! And even better they are almost the same price as the other store and even better they're ORGANIC!

Practically giddy with excitement you make your way to where the yogurt is only to find they are out of the particular flavour you always buy, and all the other flavours expire in two days and you think to yourself, "self, that is a lot of yogurt for a toddler to eat in only two days."

And it is at this point in what has been a very loooooong day that you figure the universe is trying to break up with you because you hear it quietly whisper in your ear, "I love you, but I'm not in love with you."

Sorry for the crappy day. Believe or not, I've been to the grocery store when they have been out of milk. How on God's green earth can a big grocery store be OUT OF milk?

I hope tomorrow morning you will feel better, ready to conquer the day!

Joanne... you're my hero. Because you can have a day like this and write about it and it sounds brilliant. I have a day like this, complain about it and it just sounds like I'm whining.
