5 Things I Hate About Wednesday (+ One I Love)

OK, my sunny outlook (note Monday’s post) has left the building.

Here are a few things I’ve got against this day:

1. More goddamn gray skies and rain.

2. We just found out our tenant — a fabulous guy who’s been renting from us since M. was a newborn — is leaving. Crap. Now we have to find someone else, and I doubt anyone will be able to measure up to him.

3. I think the skinny jeans I talked myself into in Austin may have been a bad idea after all.

4. I have absolutely no clue what to do with the rest of my life, and I am holding this day personally responsible for it. (Ideas welcome, by the way! I can sort of write and edit, I like to travel, and I just planned a successful event for about 5,000 people. This translates into…?)

5. There is not one mother-effing chocolate chip cookie to be found anywhere in this house and I ate the last holdout piece of the kids’ Easter candy yesterday.

One bright spot: this photo of M. It says a lot about her — always looking for another opportunity to stick her tongue out at a mommy! — and it makes me smile, even when I’m feeling down on Wednesday.

    I can relate to much of what you write Melissa…glad to know I am not the only one stealing from my kid’s Easter baskets, and could never imagine myself rocking a pair of skinny jeans. Regarding your tenant, I have to say I have been pleasantly surprised and relieved to have always found lovely, responsible and kind tenants at each juncture. And I have always connected with them through Craig’s List. So I wish you the very best in your search and hope you will have the same good fortune.

    Thanks, Rebecca! Happy to hear that about tenants, and I sure DO hope we wind up having the same good luck! Fingers crossed.
