Orange Sherbet in my Fine China

Today has been one of those days.


Exhausting. Frustrating. Bewildering day. One drama right after another has unfolded. I just don't understand some people. I have tried to help a few individuals/situations over the holidays and I'm weary. I guess I am just very black and white. If you say you need help, then I am going to help you to the best of my knowledge. I think some people don't really want help though. This is what I am learning anyway. I just don't get it. I know the Bible tells us to not "grow weary in doing good" so I am going to tuck that one away in my thinking for now and move on.

Today has been one of those days.

I think I must have a sign on me that says "Insult me please." In the past two days I have had someone tell me that my "genetics" are probably the reason that I'm a "big girl" and that my body isn't the size I would like it to be. And then they proceeded in telling me that I was probably going to stay "that way." Hmmm...I can't really figure out what part of that sounded right in their head before it flew out of their mouth. But, then again, when I think about it...maybe "big girls do cry" or want to after a comment like that. Rude radar anyone? This reminds me of the "other time" I was visiting a customer and one lady said to me "So, if your allergic to wheat and you cannot eat anything, then why are you so fat?" Can someone please give me a tissue please! And we wonder as a society why some girls struggle so much with their self esteem? Hmmm...I'll take FAT COMMENTS for 200 please!

Today has been one of those days.

And to add insult to injury, I tried to help a friend find a car who was competely rude to me on the phone when I called them with some good news about a vehicle I thought might work out for them. He was "in front of someone" so that was to explain the rudeness away I guess.

Today has been one of those days.

Someone left my sunday school class because they were bored. I know I am not the first sunday school teacher to have someone bail...but it's discouraging just the same.

Today has been one of those days.

By the end of the day, I was so discouraged that I bypassed my workout and came home and ate. I basically had two dinners. And then, in honor of one of these days, I had a big glass of Orange Sherbet. And since it was a special day, I served it to myself via one of my wedding goblets. Those things never get the attention they deserve anyway!

Despite today's disappointments, I did have an excellent gluten free breakfast at my favorite mexican restaurant with a new friend. I actually had a wonderful time! We talked about my ability to attract insulting comments and had a lot of laughs actually.

Today has been one of these :( days....
