The Turnaround

So I just had to share.

I was feeling very grumbly this morning; Daylight savings is still kicking my ass, Leila lost her homework folder, and this is one of those days where there was nothing on the agenda to look forward to. I find these kinds of days really hard. You should always have even a little something to look forward to in a day. I had to go grocery shopping, one of my most hated things, and I'm going to clean Leila's room and organize her closet since I just shoved everything in there willy nilly when we moved in. Grumble.

I was in line at Safeway, probably looking as grumbly as I felt, and there was a little old lady in front of me - scratch that: my mom hates it when I say "old lady" because the lady in question was probably not much older than my mom who considers herself "middle aged." Lets call her an older woman, and she had on her little rain coat and hat, and was buying her little groceries, and she looked at me and said, with well honed sarcasm, "Isn't this fun?"

I cracked up, and told her she had made my day. I'm feeling much better now, thanks to that little comment. Now I'm off to put the groceries away, eat some breakfast, put on the radio and get Leila's room into some kind of shape. We moved in not even three weeks ago, and its already a nightmare.

My weekend starts tomorrow, so Have a Good One!
