Somedays you're the windshield.....

Somedays you're the windshield, somedays you're the bug.  Guess which one I feel like?  Yes, it was one of those days.  In the past 2 days I have had several upbeat topics to post about, just not the time to post them.  

But as the day progressed things just happened.  Nothing major, just a series of unfortunate events.  I had a meeting early this morning that could have gone either way but I was prepared.  In fact it went surprisingly well and when everyone left I stuck my head back in my boss's office and said "wow, that was great".  I wish I hadn't because I think I jinxed the rest of the day.  

It was like a line of dominos that just started to fall and kept on going.  I am not looking for sympathy here.  But our blogs are an expression of what is happening in our lives.  We share the good with the bad, keeping it real and that is how we relate to each other.  I would expect that everyone who reads this has had a day like mine from time to time. 

I don't like leaving work feeling unsatisfied as it tends to color my mood and i don't like to drag that kind of baggage home.  So tonight I just need to mentally re-group and try and start tomorrow as the windshield.  

Remember - Be The Windshield!


  1. Oh Kim, to many days I'm the bug, :( Hope tomorrow is better for you, Blessings Francine.

  2. Oh I am so sorry. I hope that you can decompress and feel better tonight.

  3. Kim
    Sorry for your bad day..
    Tomorrow will be a better one, I pray!

  4. Kim, if it makes you feel better to hear that I feel like the bug a lot lately. I get used to it after a while but I would rather be the windshield any day. I don't blog often enough to tell it all. I try to remember what makes me smile because my family read my blog even though they don't comment.

    Sorry you had a bad rest of the day. I hope that you'll be the windshield tomorrow.

  5. Oh, Kim! I am so sorry! Here's hoping for a "windshield" kind of day tomorrow! Hugs!

  6. Kim ~
    I hope tomorrow is better. As I like to say ... sometimes you're the pigeon and sometimes you're the statue. I get tired of being the statue...sigh.
    Hugs to you!

  7. Good advice :) I learned that in teaching too! :) Stay on offense. :)

    Sorry you had a bad day! I always find starting the next day with an extra naughty gooey coffee seems to make the day seem better from go. I like it black too but when I need a little cheer :) Goo :)

    Really hope tomorrow is better! ANd's good to keep it real on the blog :)

  8. My version of that saying is ~ Somedays you get the bear ~ Somedays, the bear gets you!!! I hope you get the bear tomorrow!!

  9. I hear ya girlfriend. Hang in there, it will get better.

    don't mind hearing it on your blog either.

    maybe I should vent more on mine.


  10. good morning, hope things are going better now-love your background-Kathy
