The falling down – Isabelle from dosfamily 39/52

One of those day.
Woke up late, dead tired still after a long nights sleep. Had to drag myself to the breakfast table. Got the kids out of the house and had to re-park our car due to street cleaning. After praying to the Parking God the way my old white bearded Belgian Yogi Guru teacher once taught me, I found a great spot. That chant Always works.  Well lo & behold, me being a self proclaimed world champion of parallel parking and all, got in a bit to narrow and when going back out again HIT the car in front of me. Oh Lord – that noise of doom. Guess the good karma flew out the window. I started to cry. Big time. The ugly version. When I’m tired this always happens not crashing the car but crying. Then this truck pulled up next to me and was like – What’s cookin’ cookie? It was some teachers from my daughters school but I scared them away with the burst car driving image of myself and all the tears flooding. Then I wrote this sorry not to the owner of the other car and went to drown myself in some Coke & watched a couple of episodes of The Killing.  Also got my period. Not the end of the world but Yay what a day!

This days. I know them sooo good. And i ask myself: im the only person with this feeling?
And sometimes it´s hard for me to accept that sad feeling. And i ask myself again: what is that? go away.
The day is over. A new day starts. Everything is good. And i´m smilling.

Go to bed. Say good bye to this shitty day and wait for the new day.

Vet inte riktigt vad jag ska skriva, vill ju trösta dig lite. Men jag antar att vi aldrig undkommer de där låga dagarna helt, hur vi än gör. Så det enda tröstande är väl att veta att man har några runt sig som är beredda att ge en kram, när det verkligen behövs.

Så, här kommer en liten försynt cyber-kram, från en som förstår hur det känns. Även vad det gäller bil-oturen alltså. På vår första semesterdag i somras fick vi hela, och jag menar verkligen hela, ena sidan av bilen skrapad… Det låter kanske lite konstigt, men jag önskar verkligen att det hade varit du – Isabelle – som hade skrapat vår bil. För vad glada vi hade blivit om någon hade brytt sig och lämnat en lapp. Inte ett ord har vi hört.

Och du, kram som sagt.

Hey Isabelle, I’m with you totally. I know these days too well myself. Luckily, the sun always rises the next morning (or some morning at least!)
Take care!

Ahh, Isabelle, I am having a very similar day, and just read your very well-timed post! ;)

Happy to know you’re feeling better, and solidarity for the crappy (period-fueled, teary) days!

Cheers! xo
