The terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day

Do you ever have one of those days that just doesn’t quite go your way? A day when you feel like Alexander from the book Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day? If you haven’t read that book, you should. If you have, you know EXACTLY what I mean.

My day went something like this. I got rope burns at the gym (ask if you must), the coffee I paid $5 for was gross, I couldn’t get cash back at the gas station and when I showed up with a client to look at a house there was no key box for us to get in. My socks kept falling down, a house went up for sale 2 doors down from the house I’m about to put on the market and I stood in the wrong line at Costco (again.) I guess some days are just like that.

Then I got home and sat glued to the TV watching the miners in Chile being rescued. Wow. Suddenly my day didn’t seem so bad.  I thought of it like this. Rope burns at the gym is a small price to pay for the way I feel after a grueling session that ultimately makes me feel good the rest of the day. The $5 coffee may have been gross but it’s a good reminder that I shouldn’t be paying $5 for coffee in the first place. Having no key box to get into a house isn’t the best way to impress your client but she understood and even more importantly, at least I have clients who I want to impress. My socks kept falling down but on the outside of my socks are the most perfect pair of black boots you’ve ever seen that were given (yes given) to me by a very good friend. And even though we have some competition with the house I’m about to put on the market, I still think my listing is superior. And as for Costco, I guess having a pantry and fridge full of food for my family is worth all the hassle. And to the miners, I hope all those terrible, horrible, no good, very bad days become a distant memory and you are able to move on and lead very happy and healthy lives.
