Yesterday I thought I had a crappy day. I guess I should say I had a crappy day yesterday - until I thought about it today.
I am RIDICULOUSLY busy at work. My kids are all sick and needed immediate care. I had to leave work to take them to the doctor with Shel then entertain two of them while the others were at outpatients. I got further and further behind at work, the boys were acting out, the prescription cards didn't work to pay for the meds we needed. The outpatient visit took more than 4 hours. The babies had to have tests that were painful. Jumping bean did what three year olds do best and had a tantrum in the waiting room. Shel and I had a "whisper" argument in the hospital. Max and CJ acted out HORRIBLY in their appointment at the medical clinic with me. Max had a VERY sick stomach and we had to keep stopping and taking him to poo in public bathrooms and he is neither a speedy, nor a quiet pooper and requires someone to remain in the room with him at all times.
The day just seemed to get worse and worse and I was mad, sad, grumpy, who knows what all else by the end of the day.
Then I couldnt sleep and woke up with a headache.
Today I saw this photo on facebook on the Emilie Parker Fund page.
Emilie Parker was a 6 year old girl killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School. This is a photo of the employees of the Salt Lake Airport who stood to honor Emilie as she arrived home in Salt Lake City.
I am so humbled.
Hug Your Kids. My day was not such a bad one after all.
