one of those days

you know those days.
the ones where you feel like you've given all you've got.
the ones where you end the day wondering what happened to those 15 hours i had this morning.
the ones where you added more things to your to do list than you crossed off.

you know those days.
the ones where you run around in circles, fill your car with gas and then run around again.
the ones where you wonder how you managed to go to a meeting and remember to bring what you were responsible for and offer creative suggestions.
the ones where you coordinate and solve issues only to have everything fall apart.
the ones where you drive away wondering, how am i going to get this all done?
the ones where you realize you are not.

you know those days.
the ones where you drop your daughter off at school and are reminded that you are responsible for snack the next day.
the ones where you rush to the grocery store.
the ones where your friend invites you over for a deli sandwich and talk about losing weight before summer.
the ones where you laugh and laugh and then rush out so you're not late for pick-up.

you know those days.
where you are never at the right place when you need to be; close to a computer, in a good cell phone spot, near pen and paper.
the ones where you get phone calls from strangers because your cell phone number was printed on a mass mailing for a bank.
the ones where you just can't answer everyone's questions when you need to.

you know those days.
where your son pitches a confident second inning.
where you get an email that confirms you are about to do something amazing.
where you chat with your sister about the trip you are about to take.
where your other son brings home a 100% in a subject he's been struggling with.
where your husband tells you over and over how good dinner was.
where you can't think of anything to blog about, and then you finish your post.

i had one of those days.
but today is a new day.
and i'm ready for it.

make it a great one.
