Mama always said

...there would be days like this. Today was one of those days. It seems the whole day has been one bumble after another. I would go into the boring details but they are just that...boring.  I broke down at 2pm and went downstairs and put in the 30 day shred workout. It helped a little. For 30 minutes I didn't think about my awful day until it was over and I really needed water and realized that the water was off (boring details - the outside faucet broke when I was watering the dog) which reminded me of the terrible day I was having.
I have been spending WAY too much time playing my fire. I barely have time to read books with all my game playing. But today I decided to open the online Bible and I found some really wonderful reading plans. I am going to start a month long plan about the Christmas season. There are tons of plans to choose from and I am excited at the distraction from real life. Hopefully, I will follow through with reading. It will be a great distraction from broken faucets, sick children, hunting husbands, loads of unfolded but clean laundry, piles of dishes, unanswered emails, and a lack of decision making when it comes to choosing a cookie for the swap I want to participate in. In short, today I am thankful for distractions, schwew!

Some days are harder to find things to be thankful for, today was one of those days, but once I sat down and thought about it I had a hard time finding one thing to post about!
