First, Ben has been sick, vomitting, fussing, screaming...
Next, while running errands, I had a few issues. If you have ever been to Costco at 1 p.m. on Sunday, you know that is enough to try anyone's patience. I am tired and stressed from a sick baby, so I am already at the end of my rope when I finish paying and head to the food court for a quick lunch. Only after waiting in a line 10 people deep am I informed that the food court is cash only.
Mike borrowed my last $4 for coffees this morning. I leave empty-handed and hungry.
I go to the ATM to get some cash. The ATM informs me that it cannot dispense cash at this time. Excellent. I finish my errands and return home, tired and cranky. Lucky Mike.
After dinner, I load the dishwasher and add the soap. Only in my frazzled state, I apparently accidentally used the dish liquid instead of the dishwasher gel.
One mop, one bucket, 3 towels and a lot of elbow-grease later, I try to look on the bright side. I am certain I now have the cleanest dishwasher in the neighborhood.
I decide to self-soothe with some Dove Promise chocolates. Each chocolate comes with its own "promise" written on the wrapper. I open the first one, looking for a little inspiration. No joke, it says "Think of every day as Sunday." If every day is like this Sunday, I'll pass. Hoping for better news, I open the second chocolate. It reads "Make the most of today." Hmmm.
