What is the worst way you’ve started your day?
What is the worst way you’ve started your day?

I woke up this morning and on my way to the bathroom stepped in dog poop.

Worst start to the day EVER!

Now I will say that my husband takes the dog out first thing in the morning while I am still in bed. Let me further explain that Gizmo prefers to have you wait for her to do her business. I’ve learned that if you just put her in the back yard she will sit and wait for you to return. But if you stand there she will do her business. My husband was running late so I am assuming he put her in the yard, then came back inside and got his lunch ready. And Gizmo got even.

I thought this was just a horrible signal as to what the day held for me. But then I remembered the day I woke up to my husband leaving for California and waking me with the news that the kitchen sink was plugged up and full of water as he dashed out the door. That was a gem as well.

What is the worst start to the day you’ve experienced?

Yesterday I ran home to enjoy some outside time with Rhiannon. It was a beautiful day! So we changed into some exercise clothes, grabbed Gizmo and headed out for a walk. When we got home she wanted to draw with her sidewalk chalk so we made some sidewalk art.

And then we broke out the colored bubbles! The Easter Bunny left her purple colored bubbles in her basket. Hello stains! We had purple everywhere. It actually looked like we were both bleeding at one point. Not a fan! But we did have a fun afternoon. We are going to try to start walking more together, weather permitting.
