    Red face The dreaded question... (A new meaning of "frustration")

    There is one question that should never be asked of a woman wearing stained (with who knows what, 'cause I sure don't) sleep-pants and a raggy t-shirt who smells of slightly sour milk and looks exhausted... especially if she's sitting on a bench in the Walmart pharmacy, waiting for a prescription.

    The dreaded question is... "How ya' doin'?" (or any variation there-of)

    My answer today? (with sincere apologies to the elderly gentleman who politely inquired after my well-being..)

    1)I had a baby 5 weeks ago. I now have 4 children. All of them are sick and our insurance hasn't come through yet. I get to pay full price for their doctor visits and medicine today.
    ---So I'm frustrated enough.

    2)My fiance is in the field (military training exercise) for the next two weeks.
    ---That's a different sort of "frustration" entirely.

    3)My cats have decided that I am their personal scratching post.
    ---They will soon learn that their assassination attempts will be frustrated at every opportunity.

    4) I'm attempting to deal with 2 different lawyers on 2 separate issues. Each of those lawyers is in a different county and neither is returning my calls at the moment.
    ---That gives new meaning to the word "frustration".

    5) My house is a mess.
    ---Apparently the vacuum and the dishwasher dealt with their frustrations by having internal melt-downs.

    6) I have only managed to sneak in a single meal today between dealing with the kids, the cats, the lawyers and the breaking of the appliances.
    ---Even my stomach is being frustrated in it's search for food.

    My kids are at home being watched by the neighbor, so this is my first break all day. All in all, and despite the "frustration".... I'm doing great. How about you?

    The gentleman seemed at a loss for words, but finally rallied enough to reply with this:

    Well, seeing what you've dealt with today... I'm certainly not going to complain about mine!

    Aw....

    You are a great Mom and that takes a lot of energy. I know that (and I don't have kids.) That poor man had no idea what he was getting into when he asked you that little question. *hee*

    BTW your description of yourself at WalMart is priceless. I'll have to tuck that away and remember, jus for reference.

    *chuckles* Hey... If I can't laugh at myself, who will? I got a giggle out of the whole thing. The giggle may have been a bit strained. There might, possibly, have been a slight edge of hysteria in it, but it was still a giggle.

    Today I'll be dealing with all of the above... PLUS the cable guy is supposed to show up "between 8am and 6pm" . Nice window... So I'm trying to clean with a broom and a wash rag today. (And doesn't that just take me back to cleaning up at Scarby after a day of working the booth...)
