Have you ever had one of those sorts of days when you’re just feeling kinda blah, and you certainly don’t look your best, and you kind of just want to hole up with a good book and some ice cream, and then it turns out that you have to, like, entertain company?
When I was eight months pregnant with Chickadee, I woke up one Sunday morning and burst into tears. I was too fat, too uncomfortable, and the very idea of hauling myself to church was TOO MUCH. I told my husband to go without me. He insisted I would feel better if I just got up and out. I pulled the covers over my head. He continued cajoling me until I put on one of his shirts and some stretch pants, threw my hair into a ponytail, and accompanied him to church (sans shower). When we came home? All of my friends were at our house, throwing me a baby shower. Oops!
And so it is today–the first day that my children are away on their trip–that I have worked late, grocery shopped, come home and considered going straight to bed. Well, maybe I’ll poke around online a bit, first. While I have some ice cream.
Imagine my shock and surprise to discover than Woulda Coulda Shoulda is today’s Yahoo! Pick. Here I am with thousands of new visitors and unsightly stubble. I’m so embarrassed.
Thank you, Yahoo!, for taking notice of my little corner of the world. I am humbled to be recognized. But, uh, a heads up would’ve given me time to shave… and maybe bump those posts prominently featuring my vagina off of the top page. Just sayin’.
