Sparkle shorts! Seriously, what could go wrong with this day? These were a birthday present and I was feeling especially sparkly! Today would sparkle just like the stars on my shorts, right? Not so much!
But seriously? Who would have known? My shorts sparkled after all and I was a STAR! Today should have been amazing right?
My nails looked fabulous (another birthday present). And mind you I said my NAILS not my hands. I have ugly man hands. I’ve had man hands all my life (shush up…that’s hurtful).
So I was feeling incredibly good, and sparkly, and the day would be tremendous! Yea…not so much! The babies were acting up beyond belief. They messed up my new couch (I can’t even share pictures because I’ll cry…AGAIN).
Got an email that didn’t make me giggle at all (although I did get one or 6 that did make me giggle). A little reality check here and there (running your own business isn’t always pretty…kind of like my hands…SHUSH)!
And B let me down. Probably the most non-sparkly part of my day! He went fishing…that’s fine! He would be gone for a couple of hours…that’s great! He deserves it! He works hard. BUT he had my car…again. The (non) joys of sharing a vehicle. He’d be gone for a couple of hours (I knew in my head that meant 3-4). But it was 5. FIVE HOURS. That meant I missed my tanning appointment (you know…the only 12 minutes I get to myself every once in a while). And it meant that I had to go to Walmart at 9pm which is never pretty! (For the record, he apologized the minute he walked in the door and thanked me for letting him go…he’s not a total ogre!).
I did go to Walmart in my sparkle shorts and I’m sure I was the envy of every Walmart patron. But that’s not the point. The point is…today was NOT as sparkly as I had intended it to be. It was not as sparkly as I felt. And it sure as heck did not match my sparkle shorts!
So tomorrow, I shall wear plain shorts. I shall hide my fabulously manicured man hands in shame! Heck, I might not even brush my hair! Tomorrow will sparkle no matter what I’m wearing. It will…SHUSH UP! Wish me luck and sparkle on!
