THE TERRIBLE, HORRIBLE, NO GOOD, VERY BAD NIGHT--with apologies to Judith Viorst

Maybe this is just what I need on this Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Night. If there were worms I'd eat them. If I could huck this computer one hundred miles I would--maybe one thousand miles. No one sat by me at church but an old man--he's a nice old man. But still. My house stinks. My house is messy. I'm feeling unloved and unlovely. I feel worthless and unworthy. I feel like I wish I could walk out the front door and walk somewhere else like that woman who swam a whole ocean. I would walk a whole life. Forest Gump where are you when I need you?

Things will be better, maybe, after I've slept. I guess I will watch this sixteen minutes video again and hope for a smile and that I were validated but for what? How can you be validated for nothing? I can't even write a good first sentence.

After the trial comes the blessing, right? I'm due a good one.

Let's have a nice hug, Lynn. What a great smile you have. And those eyes, amazing.

Perhaps I should watch the 16 minute blurb. I think I am too ADD to sit for a whole 16 minutes. Maybe I'll try it.

I hope you feel better. I called just now but you people ignore alot. Makes a girl wonder if she REALLY is the favorite.

Must've been in the air yesterday, because when I saw the heading I was sure you were describing my day.

I hope today is a better day for you.

Loved the video.

Lynne, you make the very best caramels in Utah, Florida, and even the United States of America! And although I've met you only once, I read your blog regularly, and I can tell you are a lovely person.

I loved the video.

definitely something in the air and it has been blown up north.

the video was great...you are great you have the most amazing smile and those cheek bones and that wit

and where is that guy in the parking lot...still on holiday? Could he be a reference for my resume? That probably wouldn't help anyway for nobody wants me.

Lynnn, I think that now it is you who needs some chocloate. Watch for some chocolate heart shaped cookies to come your way. They are best dipped in milk. You deserve it, girl!

Yesterday was like that for me, I would watch the video, but I too am to ADD to sit still for 16 Min right now LOL

I hate having those kind of days---I have more than I like to admit, but I try to ignore it...

I hope you feel more validated today---cause you should.

I love the honesty of this. When I feel this yucky I don't blog, because I think my "Team Zan" blog has to be all nice and happy. But life is not always nice and happy. And by the way, you are one of the most lovely people I know, and that is an objective opinion! I am not swayed because I like you. I promise! I'll bet even if I couldn't stand you, you would still be one of my favorite people because you are so wonderful.
