You must have missed my last week.

Cruiser's avatar

More like a bad month…2 weeks ago I tore 2 of my 3 hamstring muscles, yesterday I slipped and re-pulled them. The constant pain is getting to me.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I have been doing lousy lately. Do you guys think it has anything to do with the days getting shorter here in the US? What about some of our jellies from NZ and Australia?

AmWiser's avatar

I don’t like to say I have/had a bad day. Even if the day didn’t go so well, it humbles me to know if I’m here now, I have a chance to find some good in a not so good day. (In other words no, no bad days recently).

@Adirondackwannabe I’m doing fine down here. I slept all day to make up for late nights thanks to my assignments. I do appreciate the longer days. Spring makes everything seem more manageable.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh I was just wondering if the longer days for you guys made things more upbeat as opposed to our days getting shorter.

Well today at school my friend was kinda mean I thought. She was too happy and was making fun of me that am from Africa and stuff like that. Later when we were in class one of my other friends asked me what smell that was she smelled, i told her that is was my handcream, so then the other 1.friend I mentioned said ” oh did you use your hands instead of tissue?” I thought that was too much… so I stopped talking to her and just the whole day she was just talking about oh why does everyone die in africa and why are my hands white inside and black on the outside – just all these silly questions.

p.s she’s 18 and am 16.

@Thesexier I can’t believe there’s still Apartheic people these days. She was discriminating you and it’s not worth dealing with such dishonest person.

TexasDude's avatar

I got dumped yesterday.

TexasDude's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe, thanks for the condolences mate.

Your_Majesty's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I believe you’re such a sweet guy! Don’t worry,there’s still a lot of much better people out there for you to choose. I too,feel sorry about that,and thank you for sharing this painful story.

TexasDude's avatar

Thanks @Doctor_D, that means a lot, good sir.

TexasDude's avatar

I mean ma’am. Sorry.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard One thing you can take away from the experience is remember the hurt and try not to inflict that on someone else down the road. And don’t be afraid to try again.

TexasDude's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe, I’ve been trampled plenty of times but I’ve never once thought to take it out on others. Thanks for the encouragement though.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard More along the lines of if you have to let someone go, remember the hurt and try to be as gentle as possible.

Trillian's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard I’m really sorry to hear about that sugar.

TexasDude's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe, okay, I get what you are saying now. Thanks a lot.

@Trillian, thanks dear… much appreciated.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard What?! I just got called in…what a short-sighted measure did that girl take…I’m absolutely indignant because you’re yummy in about a million different ways and thankfully I have enough brains to realize that…and you know…if you ever need a rebound…

wilma's avatar

Sounds like some of you have had some hard times lately.
I’m sorry for that, sometimes life sucks doesn’t it?

I had a particularly bad time last night.
My son ( age 14) got mouthy with his dad, my husband. The ensuing fight was harsh, violent and very frightening. I don’t think any of us slept much last night and the poor kid had his first day back at school this morning. I’m still upset by the whole thing as I’m sure both my sons are and their dad.
I’m doing a lot of soul searching today.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@wilma That sounds intense and scary – I hope you can gain some clarity through soul searching – and if I were you, sit them both down and say that no future violence would be tolerated.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@wilma That would make for a bad day. I hate verbal family fights, I can’t imagine it going that far. Sorry for everybody involved. Maybe this does give you a place to getting everybody on a better level, like Simone said.

nailpolishfanatic's avatar

@Doctor_D , yeah well, I just think that it’s her own problem, and if she’s going to continue being my friend she better stop it. I usually just ignore people, cause in all the schools I’ve been to they’ve always called me a lesbian since 8th grade, though what I do is just IGNORE THEM! CAUSE THEY ARE NOT WORTH MY TIME

faye's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard silly girl- she’ll regret it.@wilma this happened in my house too , years ago. I made a big thing of it, but they were cool in a couple of days. both trying to be the alpha dog?

wilma's avatar

Thank you @Simone_De_Beauvoir and @Adirondackwannabe perhaps it was a lesson the kid needed, but not in that way. I can think of much better ways to teach a lesson and set a good example.
@faye Alpha dog is right. A whole lot of chest pounding, growling and shoving, grabbing and a few punches. I have seen this kind of thing before, just not this bad. It seems that there can only be one Alpha dog and any signs that the pups are becoming strong as well is seen as a threat? or… Is it just teach the whelp a much needed lesson? or am I not seeing clearly through the testosterone haze around here?

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@wilma I know it’s so cliche but forget the alpha dog bs and testosterone bs: teach your kids to be in control of their impulse and tell you husband the same.

wilma's avatar

@Simone_De_Beauvoir yes, I’ve been all over that, but it’s easier said than done.
My husband knows he has a problem with his impulsive temper. I can’t fix that, only he can.
I am trying to teach my sons, that there are better ways to handle problems.

faye's avatar

They have lost control which is why the behavior occurs and in my case it was one time. It seems to be an occurrence than has happened through the ages. I think it is testosterone fueled, growing up angst and getting older angst. Teenagers are a boiling mass of emotions and dealing with them every day does things to your controls.

Simone_De_Beauvoir's avatar

@wilma Of course it’s easier said than done, I know – I know you’re doing your best. I’m sorry that it happened. I don’t know what else to tell you – I’d never tolerate it even once.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

The ironic thing is my week is probably going to even worse. Yay, I’m really looking forward to that.

holden's avatar

My dad has been having a pretty lousy couple of weeks: his mom passed away on August 25, and our washing machine broke down pretty much as soon as we got home from the funeral, causing him additional stress, and while driving a few nights ago in an unfamiliar area he accidentally ran a stop sign and rear-ended another car. No one was hurt but our car may be totaled and he feels awful about everything. Poor dad!

tranquilsea's avatar

I was having a good day until a lady didn’t bother to shoulder check her way out of her parking space and hit me. Scraped right down my fender and bumper.

I hope she does the right thing and tells the truth when push comes to shove. She was all full of sorrys after she hit me.

daytonamisticrip's avatar

Horrible day! :(

Deja_vu's avatar

Yesterday was a really bad day :(

daytonamisticrip's avatar

@Deja_vu what went wrong yesterday?

Neizvestnaya's avatar

Driving home alone last night after 10pm, one of my tires had a blowout and scared the crap out of me. At least it let me exit the fwy and find a side street to park on before going flat enough to ruin the steel wheel.

Deja_vu's avatar

@daytonamisticrip I’m just really overwhelmed with different things in my life right now and I broke a little. I bounced back though, so it’s all good.

YARNLADY's avatar

Not really. My back is taking longer to heal than it should, because I had to take care of my two toddler grandsons last week. Their Mom was sick. Now I’m facing a five hundred mile car trip with them over the next two days, followed by a week at the beach. I’ll probably go through a lot of Aspirin.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

I guessed wrong. The week can get even worse. Woke up today with no electric, which means no water. Want to go to work with no shower, or a s/o that hasn’t had a shower and coffee?

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe I’m sure it will get better. These things only get to you if you let them – so smile regardless!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh I like your optimistic outlook, here’s a smile headed your way:)

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Here’s a smile back : ). Now we’ve conquered your bad day together. Have a splendid day to come!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh Thank you. My days still going to be crap, the weeks going to be worse, but somehow, you made it better.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@FireMadeFlesh Just to let you know, I was so down yesterday I never played a single cd.(Yes, I’m a dinosaur). Just cranked up Lifehouse, All In. You did make a difference.

chyna's avatar

@Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard So sorry about your relationship. You are such a nice guy, that silly girl has no idea what she has lost.

TexasDude's avatar

@chyna, thank you kindly, dear.

lonelydragon's avatar

The last couple of weeks have been bad. It’s one of those times when I feel I can do no right. I am waiting for my luck to turn.

FireMadeFlesh's avatar

@lonelydragon Luck doesn’t come into it. Make sure you get a good sleep tonight, then tomorrow think carefully about everything you do before you do it. Remember you are the only thing under your control, so you must learn to handle all possible circumstances. It will get better for you.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Here’s a strange twist for anyone that cares. Wednesday no power, no shower, sat around getting more disgusting all day. Thursday Dr’s appointment, good news. Todays been great. And the weekend looks halfway decent. So the week didn’t end worse than it started. laughs

Neizvestnaya's avatar

I’m having a bout of bad nights. I’m stable and predictable during the day but by late night I become an emotional evil turd and it’s worriesome. It’s not hormonal so something else is afoot but I’m a few steps from being sent to the other room. Bad girl.

Cruiser's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe Glad to hear you got your rainbow after all that!

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Cruiser Still far from a rainbow, but I was expecting absolute crap, so it was some sort of an improvement.

faye's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe glad you got good news from the doctor

YARNLADY's avatar

After my last entry, we drove 300 miles, stayed the night in a delightful motel, and loaded up our van for the next leg of or trip, but the car wouldn’t start.

We called for service, and they sent a tow truck to tow our car to the nearest dealer – 50 miles away. I took a room at the motel for a second night, using the points we had saved for a free night and my husband rented a car to drive back from the dealer.

Next morning, we loaded the few things we had kept out into the rental car, and drove to the dealer to pick up our car. They found nothing wrong with it, and it has worked fine since then.
