This week I got banned from an office supply store

Let's be honest. My brain's a lil fried today. This week I've practically lived at a Kinko's knockoff store. Which would be all right for any other person but nooo- I have to be the idiot that breaks the copy machine. And it all started with those ridiculously high platform shoes.

Oh, my brand new shoes are more sparkly than the Eiffel Tower lit up at night. And now, they are broken because I tripped over a cord and rammed into the copy machine. Let's be honest, momentum and my 6'2 tall body are not a good combo. My body just flew across tile, like I was sliding into home.

So, not only did I have to find a way to resolve the fact that I demolished a copy machine but I also had to gather up my dignity and stroll out the door.

Let's just say after a stupid start to the week I retreated to bed. Where my new foster cat Eponine decided now would be good time to vomit on my head. Seriously? My head!

I awoke not but 10 minutes ago and all I want to do is tuck back into bed and forget the world-but who doesn't want that, right?

We push ourselves so hard to achieve our dreams. We deal with tons of crap, I vote we take a moment for ourselves. You wanna see a movie? Go for it! Been dying for ice cream? Treat yourself and pronto. Because the only way we can continue fighting for our dream is to look out for ourselves.

I am convinced that every single big, fancy copier I've ever met is possessed by demons.

I definitely had one of those days today. Waited for a price on my daughter's darling princess suitcase. A relentless pursuit for a week. Waited, and waited...between the occasional nudges to the cashier, to find out half hour later fetch person had sent another fetcher to get a price the the suitcase. The second fetcher was dismissed by the overly confident cashier I had, that I had occasionally nudged that she had checked out 12 people already and the price hasn't come. There is more, but this is long enough for a post already ;-) Have a great weekend!

Yeesh, Self Sagacity! I'm exhausted just reading about that.

I lean into the momentum of my embarrassing moments. I never even gather my dignity anymore. I assume people are so busy gathering their own that they do not really even notice me. ~Mary

You're hilarious!!! Your daughter's lucky to have you! I went to college several states away from my parents. My freshman year I lived mostly on white cereal, bread, and an occasional fruit. I gained fifteen pounds, but it was a great year.
