Man, why is it that some days can start out so well and then end up on the downslide?
Yesterday was one of those days. Great choir mass, spectacular weather, golf date with Andy and friends, fun at Hahana Beach watching the Bengals game while S practiced volleyball outside with her teammates.
It was a glorious day!
Then the Bengals lost, and it was ugly.
Then we figured out that our hot tub is dead.
When figuring out that the hot tub was dead, we noticed that our hot water tank needs replacing ASAP. Like DO NOT PASS GO, CALL THE PLUMBER IMMEDIATELY AND GIVE HIM YOUR $200.... AND THEN DO IT AGAIN, AND THEN DO IT AGAIN, AND THEN DO IT AGAIN. Rinse, lather, repeat (if your hot water tank works). I actually didn't sleep much last night because I was worried that my hot water tank was going to blow the house to smithereens (what are smithereens?).
Then Shannon got some sad news from a friend.
The Reds got swept.
And finally, I've got a sore throat. You know, the kind that is telling you that the next week or so of your life is going to be quite unfortunate and the timing couldn't be worse.
For the record, this isn't me, but it's how I felt yesterday.
Do not try this at home.
Today's going to be a good, good day. Like I tell Shannon, put a smile on and fake it if you have to. Hopefully I won't have to.
