Five Reasons Why Today Sucked

Every Saturday, Melissa from the Mommyhood Chronicles hosts a Top Five Laughs blog hop.  I will be linking up, as usual, except the following is only funny if you are laughing at me.

1. So I was at Walmart today, and I needed to go to Costco, which is in another part of the same plaza of big box stores. I got in the car to go to Costco, took a wrong turn, and somehow ended up on the highway.  I have no idea how this happened. Did I mention that I am terrified of driving on highways, and avoid them at all costs? So here I am, trying to merge onto the highway that I accidentally ended up on, freaking out because it’s so foggy and rainy that I can barely see a foot in front of my face. Oh, and my little girl was in the back seat.

2. I planned to exit off of the highway the first chance I got, but I was so angry and scared that I missed the first two exits. When I finally got off at the third exit, I was so far away from Costco that it took me 40 minutes to get back. The drive from Walmart to Costco should have taken about 40 seconds, had I just driven over there like a normal person.

3. For whatever reason, my daughter did not take her afternoon nap. She just didn’t fall asleep for it. This was super annoying because had I known she was not going to nap, I could have left for Costco much earlier in the day.

4. Because of my stupid highway detour, in addition to the fact that everything already takes eight times as long with a baby in tow, I got home later than intended, fed my daughter dinner later than intended, and did not get her into bed until an hour past her bedtime. If you know me, you know that my daughter’s bedtime is serious business. Mommy and baby both get very grumpy when it doesn’t happen on time.

5. To top it all off, my brand new stroller that I was sooo excited about that I just got yesterday is defective. Great.

I think today was one of those days when I should have just stayed in bed.


  1. Oh, honey! Sounds SIMPLY HORRID. I have only been driving for 10 years, and the highway still makes me very nervous, even more so with my precious cargo in tow.

    I hope you had a glass of wine bigger than Tony Soprano's pants to put the day behind you.

  2. Oh, you poor thing. You know, I don't think it's your fault at all. It was just too foggy. Blame it on the weather! Ha!

  3. oh!! I hate times like that.. when my son doesn't go down for his nap it throws my whole day off! I hope things get better for you!

    i'm your newest follower :)

  4. Oh boy, I have had those days! They are the worst! Thankfully a good night of sleep usually makes me feel better and when that doesn't work, stand up comedy on youtube usually does. :o)

  5. Hope this comment doesn't come up 945 times--my computer is being crazy.

    What stroller did you end up choosing?

    PS. I tagged you in my Fabulous Blog Ribbon post--hope you can join :)

  6. Aww, that sounds awful! I hate it when naps get missed and then bedtime is not earlier! There is no justice in this world. I also have problems when I miss a turn. I just keep driving and driving, looking for the perfect place to turn around! It's compounded when there are people tailgating or I'm on a fast road. It happened the other day going to the recycling center! Granted, it only took an extra 10 minutes (not 40), but, yeah, it was frustrating! Thanks again for linking up at the Super Sunday Stumble!

  7. Oh no! I can so relate with fear of driving on the highways. I also avoid it with all costs! When days happen like this, I know the next day is going to be better. LOL- like my mentality! Heads up to a great week ahead for you!

  8. Defective stroller alone would be enough reason to have given up on the whole day and just stayed in bed!
