I hate how days like this…they just seem to spin in my head & when one little thing goes wrong (like…I get lost coming home from the airport, they fight in the backseat  or we can’t find his homework folder…) it can send me into that vortex of sadness I can’t seem to to find my way out of for a while. How dumb!!
