It's been one of those days. . .
You know the kind where you start out with visions of sewing most of the day.
And then. . .
You decide that even though you are just about out of funds for food for the week, there are a few errands you just HAVE to run. . . which turn into a few more and at each and every place, you spend 30-40 dollars and realize by the time you get home that you spent your ENTIRE weekly budget and didn't come home with anything to fix for dinner tonight or tomorrow or the next night. . .
And then you get home and find that one of your purchases inadvertantly was left in a different store than the store the purchase was actually from. They don't have the purchase and can't find it.
Tell me, how many people out there in a small town in Idaho really need 2 pairs of navy leggings in a girls size small? Why wouldn't they turn it in? I mean REALLY.
And in the last store, your potty-training 2 year old wets her pants and the child seat in the shopping cart. No, I didn't bring a diaper. No, I didn't bring extra clothes. And yes, we had visited each and every public bathroom.
Finally get home and bathe the kids. Take a few deep breathes, eat some chocolate and think, 'Okay, I can handle this. It isn't that bad. I'm okay, I just need to accomplish something and I will feel better.'
So I decide to hang a curtain rod and curtains that I just purchased for my two living room windows. We do not own any power tools, so hanging a curtain rod requires a lot of effort. Anyway, I was starting to feel a little better, since I actually hung one rod without too much blood, sweat and tears.
Then I pull out the curtain panels, kind of excited to see how they will look.
And guess what? There is only one panel in each package. Just one. Like who in the world would ever just need ONE curtain? Do you know anyone with with a window that measures 20 inches wide by 50-something inches long?
They were purchased from TJ Maxx, which means they most likely will NOT have two more panels. Which means I am going to have to beg them to take back the two that I have hanging in my living room. And what the heck! They were so expensive-- for each panel! I mean it is just a piece of fabric for crying out loud!
And the only reason I went out today in the first place, is because I didn't want to attempt sewing another set of curtains after the LAST incident. . .
And while I am typing this sad story for you, my girls somehow managed to ruin brownie batter, from a box (must take after their mom!), and I realized that I recently removed the program from my computer that uploads the pictures from my camera. And she peed again. On me and the couch.
Heaven help me!
So, how was your day?
