Today started with a ‘puddle’ of water in my kitchen floor… followed by an exploded bag of rolls in the freezer, can you guess why??? ding ding ding, lady in the corner? Yep, the refrigerator died! Just what I wanted on a nice Tuesday morning right? Oh, it gets better…
So I was feeding Iz her blueberry, vitamin, protein, soy milk drink and she was kinda whiny like something was hurting so I tried to reposition her and when I did I sloshed the cup of drink all over her head. So, we headed directly to the bath and didn’t pass go …
And then… I was trying to unload things to try to salvage them from the freezer when I walked in the front room (my dad was here) to find a guy I used to know when I looked like I do in those pictures right below this post about 20 years ago… wasn’t it just lovely of him to stop by to say hello? I couldn’t be more pleased… except that I had on my big t-shirt, no bra, pink pj pants with christmas packages on them and blueberry soy drink all down my front… my hair was in a messy bun with my bangs bobby pinned back, get the vision of loveliness? He did. It was kinda mortifying.
So I spent the afternoon shopping for a new fridge and cleaning out the old fridge… they will trade places tomorrow when the delivery guy comes.
Lessons learned… don’t slosh blueberry drink on people, don’t be so ugly even when at home where you think no one will see you, and always look for the bright side of things… play the glad game like pollyanna did… you know.
I’m glad I am alive. I’m glad I get a new fridge. I’m glad tomorrow is a new day. :o)

Awwwwww, Annie, no fair !!!!!!!

There needs to be a law that cute men from our past MUST call at least one day in advance with a specific time that they are going to be dropping by, before they do !!!!!

Augggghhhhh !

I hope your new fridge is one of those cool ones with all the shelves and ‘toys’ that make new appliances so much fun to have !

Hope tomorrow is better for you, sweetie !

I’m so sorry, but I couldn’t help but laugh–not because of what happened, but because I can so relate. I am the worst about getting presentable in the mornings–and I have paid for it dearly–not as dearly as you just did though. So sorry about your fridge-I hate it when that happens–hope you found a great new one, though.

I promise I’m NOT laughing at you, but wow, I’m REALLY laughing. You described that situation SOOOO well and we’ve all had one of those days, so I guess I’m really laughing at myself for all those days I’ve had.

I’m excited for you that you get a new fridge!

We’ve all had days like that. Glad you saw the humor in it and could write about it:o)

Oh Annie, I’m so sorry you’re day went like that! I had to grin while I was reading it though! I sure hope tomorrow is much better!!

Love Pollyanna–glad you found good out of “not so good”!

Oh my goodness, Annie!
Seems like quite the day for sure. Maybe tomorrow will be better my friend.

I got my GOOD MAIL today! You are so darn sweet. THANK YOU SO MUCH

Oh! I have fear every time I don’t get a shower right away! That’s got to be the worst!

But, way to take a page from Pollyanna’s book!

Oooooooooooohhhhhhhhh Izzzy!!

Oooooooooooohhhhhhh Annie!!!

You know I know better than to stay in my jammies, but I do it anyway. Today was one of those days. I spent most of the morning horizontal as much as possible with my back issues.

Glad the fridge got resolved!!

I’m glad your day took a better turn.

Just have some steak and ice cream for dinner like Pollyanna and everything will be better. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh Annie! You won’t hate me if I admit that I laughed, will you?! LOL! You painted the funniest picture!! I’m sorry the fridge bit the dust and man from long ago had to see ya all in a *tizzy* … you sure you weren’t writing the story of my life? LOL! Here’s hoping tomorrow will be much different!

**Hugs** We all have days like that. It makes us appreciate the good days all the more. I hope tomorrow is a much better day.

Kerri wrote on May 30, 2007 - 3:37 am

Oh girl! How DO you stay so cheerful?! I would have been in tears by that point!
(((HUGS))) and you DO know you’re an inspiration to me (well, to a lot of us!), don’t you??
Off to try to put up my first date post.

Sheryl wrote on May 30, 2007 - 4:24 am

Oh—I must admit, I am laughing. Not at you, mind you, but with you. “Mama said there’d be days like this…” ๐Ÿ™‚ Tomorrow is a new day AND you got a new fridge out of the deal!

kim wrote on May 30, 2007 - 4:44 am

Oh Annie!

I’m sorry that you had a cruddy day. I’m glad you were able to look at all this in a funny way though!

Tomorrow will be brighter.


Haley wrote on May 30, 2007 - 7:12 am

Oh my word – that’s when you just want to get right back into bed and start all over again!

How lovely that you can still look on the bright side.

At least you’re getting a new fridge!!!

Marcia wrote on May 30, 2007 - 10:00 am

Oh, don’t you just HATE days like that? There comes a certain point where your best bet is to go back to bed and start over.

Leni wrote on May 30, 2007 - 1:00 pm

Hi!I got here by blog surfing and you have a lovely blog. I think it’s funny how everyone has had one of “those days” and yet they’re all funny and interesting! Thanks for the lessons and enjoy the new fridge!

Anju wrote on May 30, 2007 - 1:18 pm

The glad game is always the way to go on a day like that!

Cindy wrote on May 30, 2007 - 3:14 pm

Sounds like something that would happen to me! At least you got a new fridge out of it! SILVER LINING!!! I hope today goes better!

Dena wrote on May 30, 2007 - 3:35 pm

Hello! This is the first time I have come to your blog and I just LOVE it! I will definately be back. This post is too funny – although you may not be laughing right now I am sure you will laugh at this in the future. Right? LOL

God Bless~

Karen wrote on May 30, 2007 - 4:26 pm

Oh I’m so sorry you had a bad day! I stay in my pj’s too long most mornings and usually regret it.
Hope today is better!
Can’t wait to hear about the new fridge, pics maybe!
I want a new one but don’t want to have it the way you did.

gail wrote on May 30, 2007 - 4:39 pm

I had to laugh, too! ((pouty lips)) I’m so sorry, and I feel for Izzy. I don’t think she signed up for a blueberry shake on her, either! I had something real tacky to say, but I’ll leave it out. Glad you’re getting a new fridge. Our microwave went out, and our dishwasher is pushing it.

CoachJ wrote on May 30, 2007 - 5:14 pm

Laughing WITH you on this one. Isn’t that always the way it goes – we see people we know when we don’t look our best. Hope tomorrow is better.

Oh, Annie!
When I read the title to this post, my response was a resounding YES!!!
But see, it made for a great blog entry. Yes, we can find redeeming qualities in this situation.
Did the refrigerator mishap affect your crock pot meatloaf? My family loved it. Thanks for the recipe!
Here’s to new days!

Irritable Mother wrote on May 30, 2007 - 6:32 pm

Thought you could use this.
Is the new fridge in yet?

KC wrote on May 30, 2007 - 6:55 pm

So sorry Annie. I am laughing at the thought of an old friend stopping by in the middle of this. You are so funny!

Corrie wrote on May 30, 2007 - 7:30 pm

I was laughing but not in an ugly way! I have had more of these days than I care to recall. Hope that today is better! Oh and sorry I didn’t do TTT. I could not for the life of me remember my first date. ๐Ÿ™ I know I had one, and I know who with….I just couldn’t remember it!

Judi wrote on May 30, 2007 - 7:38 pm

Just checking on you to see how you are doing this Wednesday, Annie !

Loving Annie wrote on May 30, 2007 - 9:52 pm

Easy for me to chuckle! But yea what an awful day. Lots of :hugs: going your way!

Jessica wrote on May 30, 2007 - 10:06 pm

Oh, I can so relate. That ranks right up there with surprise guests seeing your living room littered with toys, and sink full of dirty dishes.
I’m a first time visitor to your nice site. I’ll pray for your Izzy. Thanks for stopping by to check out my menu for this week!

Lisa wrote on May 31, 2007 - 12:02 am

I would have had a breakdown on the spot! LOL! That’s alot to handle in one morning! The only bad thing that came my way today was lots of doggie puke and a $100 trip to the vet ๐Ÿ™

Sonya wrote on May 31, 2007 - 2:01 am


This had me laughing only cause I can relate! Nothing like company at all the wrong times. I love the description of the clothes, sounds like something I would be wearing! Thank the Lord that we get another chance on a new day!

Hope all is well with the new frig, and that Izzy is back to herself.
Love and hugs to you!


DJ Hartman wrote on May 31, 2007 - 4:32 am

Oh Annie! So sorry about that! Especially for the guy!
That reminds me of my mum: she always looked perfectly groomed, even when running errands. She used to say: “You never know who may walk through that door!”. She never wore sleepers, apart from the time she was going to bed or out of it.
My MIL does the same. She is always dressed up with a little piece of jewellery and tow nail!
I think it has to do with that generation of women who grew up in the 40s-50s:it was unthinkable not to be perfectly groomed.
Sometimes when I do a chore (especially the dreaded all out cleaning, my weak spot)I lift my eyes to a mirror and for a moment I wonder “Who is that crone over there?”. Then I realise who she is. That for my morale!
Kiss beautiful Izzy for me. I think some blueberry and soy are OK for the skin, so I wouldn’t worry about that!
Have a bright new day!
