Did you ever have one of those days where nothing goes right? I am sure everyone has had one or more of those meltdown days. Well, yesterday was my day it started out with a bit of crying, and then frustration and then just back to crying. It was about everything and anything I could possibly think of. 🙁
Then from crying so much I brought on a headache 🙁 and top it off I had my weekly Dutch lesson..which by the way when I got there my meltdown continue to my teacher, who is such a sweet lady, she just sat there for about 10 minutes and let me just get everything out there and I thank her so much for that. It started early in the morning with the internet. My friend had come over in the morning to help me fill out a application form that needed to be dealt with on-line but the internet was just not working in my favor.
When I returned home, I had all my ingredients ready for me to cook and the oven wasn’t working, then the stove top wouldn’t start one thing after the other.. Need I say moreee?? What did I do you ask? I gave up! Yep, that’s exactly what I did I through my hands up in the air and just gave up. I took my dog and went for a long walk and when I came back everything was exactly the same as I had left it…absolutely nothing was working. So, I spent the day moping around the house and just feeling awful. 🙁
This morning I woke up feeling better the headache was gone so the day started out better…no crying, but I wasn’t sure what was going on with everything else. So, I went into the kitchen and everything was working ???? even the internet was back to normal. 🙂 Since I was not able to cook or bake yesterday I am posting a Lentil Soup recipe, which was actually one of the first recipe post’s I started my blog with last year….so please accept my apologises and since everything seems to back to normal today, I am back in the kitchen cooking and baking. 🙂
I hope everyone’s day is super great today 🙂
