Spinning out of control

It starts innocently enough…..a meeting runs late….then you have to leave before it’s finished to run off to the next…then you spill your water at your desk when you’re trying to grab your laptop….then you can’t get it booted up for the meeting that you’ve called…then you get it booted up, but can’t get the display to show up on the screen….then you FINALLY get it on the screen and it’s the wrong resolution…and you realize you’ve lost control of the meeting…..


So you do the best you can….finish the meeting….rush back to your desk to write up the meeting notes and send them out while you can still REMEMBER what in the world was discussed….then you’re late leaving work…..and you have to be home on time to make dinner because your husband is going out that night….


Then you get home…feeling frazzled….and the dogs are just so darn happy to see you that all you want to do is play and snuggle, but you have to make dinner….and clean up some puppy messes…..


Now it’s not even 7pm…dinner is finished…kitchen is cleaned up….hubby has left for his meeting….dogs are chilling…..and you’re going….WHAT THE HECK HAPPENED TODAY?!!!!

I’m a writer, reader, and creative. I thought by now I’d have things figured out, but I keep coming up with more questions. I think that’s okay. I’m here most mornings pondering ordinary things and the thin places where faith intersects.
  1. Sounds like a wild day to me. Get a nice rest tonight!

  2. wow you had a wild and crazy day, glad you made it through! Hope tomorrow is better!

  3. Oh no! I hope your evening found you some respite.

  4. Your life is hectic! But you make it through:)) I would give anything for a busy busy day!

  5. Ack. One of those “days.” They’re never any fun. But I guess it makes you appreciate the days that aren’t like that. 🙂

    Hope today is better!

  6. Whoa! I’m out of breath reading this post! Hope you are a place of rest and restoration now!

  7. You make me smile! Don’t ya hate days like that? Everything happens so fast you’re not sure how it all came together in the end. It’s like your very own Survivor program.
