2016/August/29 - Back to Work, Again

What kind of day was today?  How about this: after a very poor night's sleep, (his tummy hurt), Grump drove off to Columbus FORGETTING to bring the yummy tea Sweetie had made him.

Grump's Tea, (in the blue travel mug), left behind at home

After that cruddy start, you can kinda expect that today was pretty rough.

But before we dwell on the bad things, let's take a peek at one of the good things that happened today, namely, Grump's lunch:

Yummy Embutido for lunch!

Sweetie makes wonderful embutido!  Grump thoroughly enjoyed lunch.

Now I suppose we need to return to the day's challenges .......

First and foremost was Kuya's absolutely HORRID performance on a homeschooling test.  I don't know what got into the boy, but for some reason he was completely unable to concentrate, and thus gave fantastically stupid answers to most of the test questions.  For example, did you know that 4 + 4 equals 2?  (When asked why he answered that way, he said that he thought the 4's were 1's!)  This behavior drove poor Sweetie up the wall!

Right before he was supposed to go to a meeting Grump got a call from a frantic, upset Sweetie, describing Kuya's lame-brained attitude.  Grump tried to help, and called back a few times with "advice", but all he did was upset Sweetie worse, to the point where by the end of the day she was more aggravated with him than Kuya!

It was a bad day.

But the very good news is that today is finally done!  All bad days must eventually pass, and then we get a new day to start our endeavors all over again.

Hopefully things will go better for us tomorrow.
