One of Those Days

by Melinda Langston from the Pampered Pets Mysteries series by Sparkle Abbey

Hey everyone, It’s Melinda!

Sorry I’m late. It’s just been one of days. Have you ever had the morning when everything that could go south does?

First, Missy got into the dog treats and ate the whole bag. Well, you know what happens when dogs overeat? Yup. I stepped right into a large puddle—barefoot. She’s fine now. After I got that cleaned up, I realized that at some point during the night my electricity had gone out. My cell phone was dead, I was late for work, and I had no way to blow dry my hair. I decided to pull my hair into a wet ponytail and call it a morning. Until I hopped into my Jeep and it wouldn’t start. I'll let you imagine what I said at that moment.

I just got back from the mechanics and it's not good news. He said I needed an alternator, which will only cost around a thousand dollars. Only?

I’m sure the day will get better. If not, tomorrow is another shot at a better day, right? But for today, I wish I could have a “do-over.” 

What about you? Do you have any crazy mornings where you’d like to hit the reset button and start over?
