Ever Had One of These?

Today, is turning out to be one of those days...one of "those" days.

I woke up this morning, after a good night's sleep, completely and inexplicably exhausted. I flopped around the house trying to get my caboose going and I couldn't really. Had to call an appointment and re-schedule it for later, because I was still flopping around the house up to the time I was suppose to be somewhere else. Got lost and almost had an accident on the way to my appointment. Came home, and the dear husband, love of my life, had tried to cut a slice of my nice, homemade (and hand-made) bread with a butter knife. Yup~g.r.r.r.r.r! I went to the bedroom to relax at the computer while eating my hastily made lunch. While I was dipping my taco chip in some salsa, I absent-mindedly dipped it instead into a tin of "Bag Balm" and then tried to eat it!

My whole house is falling down around me and all I want to do is crawl back into bed and play hookey or sit at my computer.

So, I am now going to go "gird up (my) loins" and clean my disgusting kitchen (from canning, etc.). If I was rich I would have a maid, but that ain't gonna happen in this life! I won't promise pictures of my newly clean kitchen, when I am through, but I may post my favorite recipe for refrigerator pickles.

H.m.m.m...Unless, of course, something more exciting than cleaning happens...Like, I don't know. I want to play hookey!

Have a good day!

Hope things get better for you & you feel better soon! "Those" days are always hard to get through. By the way, thanks so much for the comment & insight on my blog.

oh dear Elizabeth...moi aussi...about the maid! Sigh...not in my lifetime either...though...I do admit that for three months after my son was born and I had to go back to work..my hubby hired a cleaner to get me 'past that hump'...was wonderful? NO...I redid everything..ha..someimes we are never (I am never) satisfied. HOpe your day goes better tomorrow...sometimes I think we should really just play hookey...just for one day!

hope u r doing better! sometimes my days like that last longer than a day... i think it is because we have been thru so many things & do so much that it is time for a rest. computer has been down & out & will git you the salsa recipe if u still want. could u e-mail me your address & i will send u a recipe since the computer is still slow... i go to load something & it loses it. still will call & see, it must be an interference in the house. our phone line is full of static, it is hard to comprend sometimes everything they tell you to do... i am not a tech nut at all. hugs & blessings, vikki ♥
