It Had Been A Day…and then Lori arrived…

OK, I don’t tend to complain much, but today has been a day…

It actually started yesterday – there are just some moments when your children know which buttons to push…and sometimes they don’t realize their doing it – but they sure push them and it’s a moment of anger that puts me through the roof.

I’m guessing that most of you can relate…

I’d go into the “Ommmm” pose and start chanting if I could…

Happy thoughts…Ommmmm…beautiful flowers…Ommmmm…laughing babies…Ommmmm…Happy little trees (oh wait, that’s Bob Ross – the painter on PBS).

None of it worked…


Lori came over.

Have I told you about my dear friend, soul sister, I swear…sister from another mother – best friend in the world?

I love her.

She’s the friend who calls me if I don’t call her for a few days…

She’s the “Lori – I NEED a Lori moment” type of friend who will come right over, because more than likely she needs a Patty moment too.

So we did.

A glass of wine and some Dark Chocolate Acai Blueberries on the deck and two hours later we both felt better.


It’s amazing what a little friend time can do.

Do I still want to have a few choice words with that daughter of mine?Β  Yup.

But they’ll come out much better now thank you.

Lori, you are my person…

Just like Meredith is Christine’s person on Grey’s Anatomy.

Speaking of which…did you see last night’s Grey’s?



I’m so glad that at least they made sure to show that Meredith and Baby Bailey are ok…but Richard?



Maybe my first mistake this morning was watching Grey’s (I had dvr’d it)…


Note to self…stop watching season finale’s in the morning!

I hope you’ve had a great day…and if not…

I hope you have a person…like Lori…

  1. I have a “Lori” in my life too; God knows what we need and when we need it!
