A bad day and a cute (& helpful) puppy




This morning, my brand spanking new coffee pot, did something horrible, the water stayed trapped up in the filter/coffee area, and it didn't acutally FILTER into the pot - being as this is it's only job on the freaking planet, you would think this is not so hard. It disagreed, making me surly at best... I should have just gone back to bed, right then.



But no, some part of me, said "it will get better".. Silly silly me.

This day went down hill out of control - like an epileptic on rollers skates at the top of a ski jump.
In short. It just plain sucked.
I was amazed I didn't get hit by a cement truck driving home.

One of my friends used to encourage me to find one good thing that happened in the course of a bad day. I did have a moment. You see at about 6 am this morning my puppy stepped on my little toe. While this doesn't at first blush sound like a good thing, and it hurt like crazy for about 12.8 seconds, it seems to have fixed the problem. How, you ask? I think all along, my toe has very possibly been dislocated, not broken. No joke - it's all better. I even RAN on it during my workout today.

So yeah. I'm running again. Oh.Yes.I.Am.

I have no idea how I'm going to work out the rest of the crap that happened to me today - but at least I'm going to run through my frustration. Oh.Yes.I.Am.

How's YOU?

Well, I'm fine.

Sorry you were having a shitastic day. Wish I was better at picking up on those signals....

But YAY for no broken toe! Well done on the workout.

Bad day number 2.... A broken toe would be welcome at this point....

Well, hey,I'm sorry he didn't step on your toe a while back! I'll have a talk with him about it, if you'll bring him over.....LOL

Hey!!! How can there be a Friday post when it's still Thursday, Jen? What kinda high tech trickery is involved here!?!

Well, congrats on the toe. Makes me wonder though, how long this would have dragged out if the puppy hadn't stepped on your toe. Can't your doctor tell when a bone is broken and when it's not? Scary.

Well yay for running, in spite of everything else!

Oh my gosh, puppy is completely cute AND magical!

You just can't get any better than that.

where's your mojo????
heh.
look at it this way.... its better than making the coffee when the pot is on the counter a foot away from the maker....

The coffee maker at the office will keep going for 2 minutes after the pot's full about half the time. That sucks monkey balls. My philosophy: better here than at home.

Yay for chirodoggies!

I snorted at the epileptic on roller skates. Hard. Is that bad?

What do you do if an epileptic falls into your pool?


... throw in your laundry.

/you started it.
