As I was blog surfing this week I came across a meme that I thought would be fun to start doing.

Feel Good Friday (which I first found here, but originates from here). I know I have been a bit of a downer lately and I figured since I can’t promise that I won’t be from now on, I could at least promise a bit of good cheer every so often.

However, after the morning I have had, I just can’t find much to feel good about today so I am aptly renaming it (just for this week only…or maybe not, we’ll see):

F@!K Me Friday

So here are my 5 things that I felt screwed up my Friday/week/doesn’t-matter-cause-either-way-you-look-at-it-life-sucks-at-the-moment.

1. This morning:
Dear Sweet Daughter: “Mom! Are you ever going to wake up today?!?”
Me: “Huh? What? What time is…..” looks at the clock and sees that it is 8:00am “SHIT!! I mean SHOOT! – don’t ever say that word ok honey.” I jump out of bed, shower, and get ready in a record 30 minutes. That’s right, I am supposed to be at WORK at 8am. Not being woken up from a sound sleep by my daughter who by the way, had been up for quite some time just chilling out watching cartoons.

2. Get all the kids stuff and my stuff and every other stuff loaded into the car and head to my mom’s to drop off the girls. Realize when I get to my mothers, that out of all the stuff I packed in the car, I forgot to grab my laptop for work. SHIT! SHOOT! Back home I go to get it.

3. Finally get on the road and headed to work. Enjoy a nice quiet drive laughing at the DJ’s on my favorite radio station. Bad start to the morning but hey, it’s Friday and it’s all good now right? That is until I REAR END someone right in front of my office. Apparently when you are merging into traffic, it is a pretty good idea to make sure the person in front of you has merged before you begin your own merge. Silly me. My victims are fine. I am fine. My car is fine. Their car, eh, not so fine (opps). Thank goodness for insurance. So much for my clean driving record.

4. By now it’s 10:00. My nerves are on high alert. I shakingly walk into the office, plug in my laptop, open my Inbox and an alert pops up “Content Team Meeting – 2 hours overdue” FML. Our first team meeting that my boss really wanted everyone to be at and I missed it. Great. Way to go Ace.

5. As if all of that isn’t bad enough, I am STILL sick. Every time I breathe my chest rattles and makes me cough. My ears are clogged and I can’t hear anything. There is so much pressure in my head I feel like it is going to explode any minute. My eyes are so tired from looking at this same damn spreadsheet all week long that I feel that if I don’t get a break from this I will be permanently cross-eyed.

Happy fucking Friday.

Maybe next Friday will feel better.


  1. Is it OK if I laugh? The events aren't so funny, but the way you told it is HILARIOUS! "Happy Fucking Friday" hahahahaha. Bless your heart. I'll toast a glass (or 5) of wine to you tonight from Indy ;) Do you like tequila, because I know Patron calms the nerves and alters the memory hahah.

    And it sounds like you may need to be on antibiotics for the cough. Have you been to the doc?

    AND, thanks for giving my blog a shout out. That always puts a smile on my face (because it happens so frequently and all lol).

    Hope things turn around for the better...


  2. I might have to teach you to set up your account so I can email respond to your comments... otherwise I'm going to just do it here lol.

    Umm, I don't 'know' you, but I love you. BEST COMMENT EVER. "Today I ripped my pants. In the ass. I used to like Friday's. Woohoo."

    HAHAHAHAHA. I was crying I was laughing so hard.

    You poor thing. If I knew you in real life, I'd send you a giant bottle of Patron. Sounds like you could use it.

    And I totally agree, tomorrow we should all stay in bed all damn day. Oh wait, I have to babysit 8-12 and 4:30-god knows when. Welcome to motherhood, huh? At least I get paid for it and get to give the kids back lol.

    How'd the doc's go? Based on what you described (and I already correctly diagnosed once this week haha. tooting my own horn, not normally that cocky. at all.), sounded like bronchitis or walking pneumonia (possibly full blown pneumonia). Hopefully just a bacterial infection though... the other three suck!

    Feel better soon.

    I wrote a novel. Again. It happens. A lot. So sorry.

    Adios ;)

    PS. Do you live in the midwest, too? Or is the entire nation suffering from the wrath of Mother Nature?

    PPS. if you want to respond to this, which you don't have to, my email is ;)

    OK, BYE!

  3. 1.

    2. Did I hear someone mention Patron?

    3. I think the F me Friday should be a staple, because let's face it... shit happens Friday's too!

  4. 1. is missing so it was ((((hug))))

  5. F@!K me Friday sounds like a good idea. Hopefully you have more Feel Good Fridays instead. =)

  6. You are so cute! You should have totally linked this up.

    You have no idea how many times I say "Holy Shit" in front of my 10 yr old and then I say "Did I just say that out loud? Don't say that word!!"
