The Worst Day in a While

Today I had a series of unfortunate events. Starting with a 4:58 a.m. wake up and ending right now with Will crying and screaming at me to let him play the monster truck game on the computer again. Today at Hancock Fabrics, Will unrolled a whole spool of light blue ribbon in our cart. As I was trying to wind it back up, Paris puked all over it. Including the cardboard roll, so I was pretty much buying the whole thing. I felt humiliated when I had to tell the lady at the cutting table what happened and she said, "do you know how much was on it? I don't really want to touch it." By the way, these ladies at Hancock are so mean to me and others I know. Though I am one of their most loyal customers (only for lack of another good fabric store close by.) Then later I was working on an Easter dress for Paris and I couldn't get it right, so I kept ripping it apart to redo it and finally I just chucked the whole thing in the trash. Maybe I'll start a new one tomorrow, maybe I'll just buy one at nordstrom. Will is still screaming in my face. Better go put him to bed. Sometimes I love my kids and want to play with them all day, but TODAY IS NOT THAT DAY! (Tricia, you know what I mean - as I am plagiarizing you.)

I feel for you! And you know I really dislike those witchy ladies at Hancock! I'm glad they got to get a good wiff of Paris' puke though. Hope you all feel better soon!

LOL. I'm so sorry you had to have one of THOSE days. You are too nice and talented to deserve it.

Sorry about your bad day. Matt was just talking about how I should open a fabric and ribbon store. I didn't realize Hancock was so bratty.

Sorry about your bad day. Today will be better! I wish every store would offer some kind of daycare. That way we could get all of our shopping done quicker and without incidents. I can't wait for the Ikea to be built! We will defiantly be planning a shopping day then!

Sorry you didn't have such a good day. Those Hancock ladies are so rude, I don't get it. Hope tomorrow is a better day!

Go tell those ladies off! I seem to be having lots of those days lately as well. It's the result of stretching myself too thin, and then it all pours at the same time.
