The Mood Can Change On A Dime


I started the day and I was in a fantastic mood.

Dropped the kids off at school and went for a quiet shopping trip.  I needed some life supplies at Target.  It was quite peaceful.  I compared laundry detergents, got some self tanners, and even picked up some shorts for the kids.

I saved the fun stuff for last…I love looking at the clearance clothes at Target.

Then I faced the fact that I had to buy a bathing suit for vacation.  It’s only a few weeks away.  I found one on clearance! Score! I even found a second that was on sale! Awesome!

I picked Chloe up from preschool, we ate lunch and Chloe set up shop on the couch for a bit while I did some work.  Chloe was invited over to the neighbor’s house for a couple of hours.  Score again! Two hours of no interruptions (well, no interruptions from kids).  I wrote the restaurant schedule, I worked on the event calendar, I paid some bills.  I still had time.  I decided to try on my new bathing suits.


I’m just gonna sit here in the fetal position for a while, mmmmkay?

    Oh, how bad could it be? I think you still look great!

    Awwww…thanks. But in my head, I look about 25 years old. Putting on a bathing suit makes me realize that the picture in my head doesn’t exactly match up with the real thing.

    No, I know what you mean. Most days, I still feel about the same as I did when I was 25. Every now and then, I catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror (usually when I’m at work and a bunch of teenage girls are in the bathroom,) and I think, “How the heck did THAT happen?” Monday was terrible because I was in a room filled with mirrors and 100 pound dancing teenage girls all day!
