The other day I was watching VH1's Behind the Music and it was about Ice Cube and they played his hit song, "It was a good day."
I remember when that song came out, I was in middle school and I loved it.
Thought it was fantastic.
So it's been going through my head since I watched the program.
Today I want to curse that song.
Because today is not a good day
Today is, in fact, a bad day.
Have you ever had a day when it all snowballs? It's just one bad thing after another and it seems to build and build until you feel like you are going to snap in two?
I got into a spat with a friend who was acting like an idiot, the house was a disaster when I came home from a play date, my new cell phone wouldn't let me log into my account and then, to top it all off, Turtle refused to take a nap. Like refused as she spent thirty minutes screaming and arching her back, clawing at my face and kicking me if I came too close to her.
I thought I was going to burst into flames.
I had to put her down and separate myself from the situation.
Not because I was going to hurt her, never.
Just because I was going to bawl like a little girl.
I stuck her in the room with her Dad and sister and ran outside to get fresh air.
I gave myself some time, went back in, got her down for her nap and called my friend to hash out our spat.
Now the day is starting to get better, but it's not back up to Ice Cube's status just yet.
We'll get there though.
