ONE OF THOSE DAYS that make you want to cuss....

Thanks to MARY at WORKS OF A POET

Thanks, TAM at THE GYPSY'S CORNER

My THREE things are a bit unusual to blog about but....O, well ...
***************
*
Do you ever have one of those days
when EVERY thing you touch, goes sour ?
Days when you would like to haul off and let a string of cuss words fly ?
*
WELL....I HAD ONE not very long ago.....and had
THREE bad things happen...all in one day..
and I might have said "WELL, HELL !!"...
These weren't really BAD things...
just things that made me want to throw up my hands and go back to bed !!
*
First off, my grout in our bath is beginning to look pretty dirty.
Now, I KNOW it's not dirty because I mop it almost every single day....
But...you know....
it started looking pretty grungy so....
*

I got out my Bathroom Cleaner....
gave that area of the floor a few squirts...
UH...O !!
*

It totally bleached some areas white and other parts didn't bleach at all.....
DANG IT !!
*

So now....I've got to use this freakin' TOOTH BRUSH....

on every single, solitaire piece of grout in my bathroom....
bwaaaaaaaa...
*
that's ONE...

Then, I went to the grocery store and had to pee so bad by the time I got home,
I was trying to carry too much and move too quickly and I dropped
a bag with my strawberries and..of course...
my strawberries rolled all over the concrete !
bawaaaaaaaa...
* that's two....
*

But, I didn't cry LONG over spilled strawberries...no sir...
I just left them there, went in the house with the rest of the bags
and ran to the bathroom with the stupid-looking floor...
THEN I went out and picked up the strawberries, washed them and they were as good as new......ate one and now I'm happy...*smiling

THEN....
I reached for the cup towel and....
knocked my cute little black and white cup off and on this ceramic tile...
it shattered into pieces that flew all over my red kitchen.....
bwaaaaaa....
That cup came from one of my favorite cheap stores, BIG LOTS and
half the time, they never get the same thing in twice ....
but I jumped in the car and drove over to see if they might have some more....
but, NO SIR...they did not!!!

that's three things...
*

BUT......they did have these little cups full of cuteness....
latte
cafe'
mocha
coffee......
They just MADE MY DAY.....
***
I' M HAPPY AGAIN........
****
'cause it's the little things !

Bj.. at least at the end of the day you were still smiling.. the mugs are adorable.. and the strawberries look delicious... wanted to share a few weeks back I notice the tile in the kitchen was looking a bit on the sad side. I put some bleach in a spray bottle and went to town spraying.. it turned out amazing.. no scrubbing and it looks brand new.. I hope yours turned out the way you wanted it to... hugs ~lynne~

Connie said...

Maaaaaaan, I hope tomorrow gets better for ya, chick! I understand this perfectly of course. Chin up and laugh!
xoxo,

Sares said...

You are too funny! I guess you made lemonade out of lemons with that broken mug! I love the picture of the strawberries with the water too, it's a great shot!

Melissa Miller said...

BJ you sure had me laughing at this cute post. Then you ate a strawberry....LOL! Too funny girl. Love the new cups. ~Enjoy! :)

Neas Nuttiness said...

So sorry that you had a bad day, but dang, it's nice to know that I'm not the only one who has days like these.

Oh how I LOVE Big Lots!!!

Stacey said...

BJ, if I ask nicely and serve pie will you help me with my bathroom floor? It's not pretty! Needs a little toothbrush intervention.

I'm so glad you found the cutie pie cups!

Really Rainey said...

Chris said...

GM BJ, Oh I can so relate to days like that, I don't think I handle it as well as you though.:)

Love Ya,
Chris

Poppedijne said...

In a way this is even funny...I bet you will have a laugh about it. Some days are like that!

Amelia said...

Oh my, some days just do not roll along like we would like. The cups are cute...bet they even make the coffee taste beter.

Stay cool!

SmilingSally said...

I've had the same bleaching result with my bathroom grout. I wish they'd invent an invisible grout.

Beverly said...

BJ, you always make lemonade from lemons, and you always make me smile. I love starting my day with you.

I recently broke my favorite cup, and I can't find another one I love. But, I am still looking.

Nancy said...

Cute post, BJ! I am glad all thinks worked out for you, by the end of the day! Nancy

santamaker said...

Hey BJ..so funny. I think the funniest part is that as a seasoned blogger, we have to take time out of our bad moods, to quickly grab a snapshot so we can share it! Glad that it ended well for you, though!

Kathleen Grace said...

I'm glad your day ended better than it began! Those mugs are perfect for your cute kitchen. You know, if you just let that bathroom floor be, all the grout will eventually revert back to being a uniform dingy color (mine always does) and then you can try something that will clean it more evenly, lol. Hope today is better:>)

Trish said...

What a bad day...I think the 5 second rule applies on the strawberries!

Thanks for stopping by my blog to send some luv!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

They say every cloud has a silver lining and those cute mugs are certainly the silver lining on your cloudy day!
Hugs,
Penny

Diane Duda said...

My goodness! Thank heavens for cute cups. :)

squawmama said...

Hi BJ, Sorry you had such a day. Doesn't it always come in three's??? Well let me tell you I loved the new cups even more then the cute little black & white one... So luck was on your side!

(((HUGS)))

Trish said...

BJ...when it rains it pours! But the Lord blessed you with those cute new Mugs because you let the Fruits of the Spirit work in you. By not letting out a string of cuss words.
Yep, self control is one of the fruits! Cute post...sorry about your tiles!!! =(

Chris said...

Glad your day got better! Love the mugs too.

Hope it's a great Tuesday...

Chris

PEA said...

Oh yes, I've certaily have had those kind of days! lol I always say I should have just stayed in bed!!! In your case, though, some good did come out of a bad day, look at those delightful cups you ended up with:-) xoxo

Justine said...

It cracks me up that in the midst of all these mishaps you were snapping pictures of it!!! ROFLMAO!!!!!!!!

You mop your bathroom floor EVERY day? A little obsessive there, BJ?

OMG, I LOVE those mugs. LOVE THEM! Ack! if you go back, pick me up a set and I'll pay ya for them!

Justine :o )

You can even make a bad day sound like fun!

salmagundi said...

Some days are that way, but glad you are smiling now. Thanks for stopping by and explaining more about the large pictures. When I get an uninterrupted time span, I'll sit down and experiment with it. I do have Susan's instructions. Sally

Sue said...

Gotta love it when silly things just continue to happen. What's with that little saying about things happening in threes? in my case it's fours, fives,and sixes. LOL must have something to do with being a Sullivan and Murphy's Law...haha
Glad you survived your traumas....
:-) Sue

Susie from Bienvenue said...

I'm so happy you stopped by my blog. This is a hilarious post. This post sounds like my life. I have days like this one too often, lol. Yes, you should write about the 50's. I would love to hear what you loved about them.

I just became a follower so I'll be stopping by often. Have a super week!

Bill said...

Hey there, BJ,

Well, you had a right to sing the blues; you sang 'em, cried a little, ate a strawberry, went shopping and found something FUN!

You set a great example for all of us!

Thanks for stopping by and leaving the nice comments. Have a wonderful week!

Bye for now,
Bill

My DEAREST BJ...AKA...BJ> MURPHY....
Ok darling.....I so understand...you think all is well...everything is going wonderful and along comes something....
Ok...we finally started the babys room...yeah...so I stop the work in my room(no-one mentioned I'd drop everything for our new princess to be) But...in an order to try to keep things rolling,afterall we now have 2 bedrooms and a bathroom under construction...again...well anyway..So here I am...well I will try to keep at least the area bnear the front door clear...everyone will understand if they come to the door...why MY curtian rod is draped over the sofa...well...maybe if I just vacumn up a bit...it won't look so bad.....
Well...should have taken a moment...picked up the rod...suddenlt...grrrrrrr......brrrrrr....rrrrrrrrrrr
Ok...is that burning rubber I smell? Yep...my sheers are now caught in the vacumn...yep...belt is broke now! So...I'll just sit down...cry a bit ...maybe go visit BJ! Oh...so glad I did...Misery loves company...and HEY I want to go and buy new sheers anyway...maybe I'll go to BIG LOTS ...maybe I can find my friend a mug....See you later girlfriend...GONE SHOPPING!
And oh..don't worry...I'll tinkle before I go! I loved your story!

Dreams and Decor said...

What a cute post (& I think we can all sympathize---some days are like that!) & I'm glad your day ended on a positive note with those cute, cute mugs! Patti

Lynne (lynnesgiftsfromtheheart) said...

BJ, I know what you mean. I would love to take some classes..this is so additive, I find myself redoing each photo I take now about 5 times or more until I feel like I have it just right and then... redo it again..lol..
I use the bleach straight...I found I could take the smell and then I burnt candles afterwards to sort of take it ouf of the air for Mr. P.. he wasn't the most fond of it.. but it sure cut my work time in half..that way I have more time to play on here...lol
hugs ~lynne~

Fun RT post!

Hugs and blessings,

srp said...

It sounds like you had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.... but it turned out ok.

imjacobsmom said...

Sometimes we just have one of those days. I had dropsy at work yesterday. Your new mugs are cute, though. So I guess all is well. (I hate scrubbing grout...) ~ Robyn

Kim said...

I loved your 3 or more Tuesday post. I hate days like that. But look on the bright side, it could have been worse & if you hadn't broken the one cup, you wouldn't have found the new cute cups. So sounds like it turned into a good day afterall. Now about that grout.....just kidding. I'm not going to show you mine.

maryt/theteach said...

So small things can make you pissed off too! But in the end it's not too bad, right? Those are fun cups! :)

Theresa @ Take A Sentimental Journey said...

Oh shoot , those cute mugs made up for all 3, lol .I sure am glad I am not the only one that could cuss sometimes , LOL . I hope you have a great evening sweetie !!

ellievellie said...

I know the feeling - all my coffee mugs come from the Dorcas Thriftshop - but they never run out of interesting mugs :) Great sequence!
