Peaks and Valleys

"Sometimes you're the windshield; sometimes you're the bug." At least according to an old country song. I have always loved that line. Today I realized that sometimes you are both.

Today was filled with peaks and valleys.

LOW: Getting up two and a half hours earlier than normal to get some work done a project with a looming deadline only to be joined by my daughter five minutes after pouring my first cup of coffee. So much for working.

HIGH: Realizing that I have lost 4 pounds this week - Woo-hoo!

LOWEST POINT OF THE DAY: Standing in the parking lot of the grocery store while Angelgirl is screaming inside the minivan while I try to explain through frustrated tears to the very kind customer service representative from my bank that the bank had absolutely no business changing my PIN because I can't seem to remember it and she needs to change my PIN back to the same one I have used for 20 years. The old PIN is a good PIN. There is a reason I haven't changed it in 20 years. I can remeber it!

HIGH: Finally being able to use my debit card for the first time in 2 weeks

LOW: Keeping a cranky child who has been awake an extra 2 and 1/2 hours awake even later than normal because of a tornado warning.

HIGH: Not getting hit by a tornado.

HIGHEST HIGH OF THE DAY:


Watching Angelgirl on her first merry-go-round ride.

That smile makes everything better. Life is still good.
