Lessons Learned

Have you ever just had one of those days? You know you have. We all have right? RIGHT!?! I seem to have them a lot. Like for example today I was super excited about this recipe I found and couldn't wait to make them because everything in them I can actually have without feeling guilty and they smell sooooo good baking and look good enough to eat but when you put it in your mouth you realize that the texture is awful and can't finish it. So, you have 18 "muffins" sitting on your counter and no one will touch them. Yeah.

Then to add to the wonderful-ness of your already sad tummy your son overhears you saying a bad word (dammit!!!!) and looks at you in disgust and storms off to his room crying because HOW COULD you speak that way around him. I honestly don't know where he came from.

Oh and lets not forget Miss fashion police that lives in my house. She is always pointing out the obvious. Listen little girl... I KNOW I don't match today, I realize that what I am wearing may be a big no-no in your world but I am just pulling weeds. Mmmmmkay?

OR that time when two bubbly young teenagers show up at your door, you know the ones, selling magazines. You are already having a really really bad month day and you are sitting there listening to their "story" and thinking that you would rather be anywhere in the world but there listening to them and then one of them says something that just hits the spot and you have a total meltdown right there on your porch with two strangers holding you while you sob. No? Not happened to you before? Yeah, me either!

My point is... we all have crappy days, days that just make us want to march back up to our beds and start over but what we learn from these days is whats important. Like for example, I will not make those muffins ever EVER again. I am sure glad I learned that. I also won't say dammit around my son EVER again, and when I pull weeds... I will make sure that I look presentable just in case! And when two bubbly teenagers show up at my door I might have to hide because that was the most EMBARRASSING moment in my life!

Lessons learned.


  1. Aww :( I hope it gets better for you. I gave up making protein-dominated baked goods a long time ago.

    If you haven't already discovered this little gem and are after a sweet treat while on a comp diet, try protein dough! You just take a normal scoop of protein and add it to a bowl alongside 1-3 tablespoons of water, and then mix in a tablespoon of peanut butter. It tastes amazing and I'm addicted to having this every night!

  2. Oh no! I hope your weekend goes better than your week!

  3. Sorry about the rough times! Fact: I used to burst into tears every time my parents swore. I still remember specific incidents.
