It's a Good News, Bad News Kind of Day

The good news?

Today is the last day of school for LadyBug and Baby BlueEyes.

The bad news?

We can't spend the afternoon in the pool celebrating our freedom from alarm clocks.

The good news?

The Boss has started fixing the unbalanced chemical levels in the pool water.

The bad news?

He had to shock the h*ck out of the water to do it.

The good news?

No one got hurt when the mirror slid off its broken bracket in the master bath.


The bad news?

Looks like there's a master bath re-do in the near future for The Boss.


The good news?

Dr. D is very good with a screw driver. And at rescuing his Momma from herself.

The bad news?

The mirror was heavier than I thought. And my hands were very slippery with hair product.


The good news?

We purchased a replacement faucet a long time ago.

The bad news?

It's been sitting NEXT to the vanity for almost two years.

The good news?

Ni Hao Kai Lan has taught Li'l Empress to talk about her feelings in a helpful way. Most of the time.

The bad news?

Stomping off in a huff when you are a "top heavy" toddler rarely ends gracefully.

The good news?

Li'l Empress didn't break her elbow when she fell on it this morning.

The bad news?

She's still crying about it as if she did break it. An hour later.

The good news?

Shaggy is a very compassionate, kind brother.

The bad news?

AFTER he gets his "candid" of her freaking out, wailing and weeping over her bloody elbow.


The good news?

It's almost naptime.

The good news?
You survived today.

The bad news?
There will be more like it.

The good news?
They'll be slightly different
so there will be less feelings of deja vu.

The bad news?
Days like these suck. No cliche on earth can solve the problem - they just suck. Having someone tell you "This, too, shall pass" is just as annoying as living the actual day.

The Good news??
I"m not about to tell you that.

The bad news?
I'm sort of happy it's not just me that has days like that.

The good news?
I'm not normally so selfish.
Love you.
