Yes, we all have them. And yes, no matter who you are, or what those days entail..they just happen. What I have found is that how those days affect you, family, friends and even innocent strangers is all in your perspective.
I recently had one of those days. It didn't start out that way...both of my wonderful kids got up for school and were ready before it was time..so nice :) My third child, Holly golden was excited as she used to get only one car ride in the mornings and now she gets two. Sent Mr. Cottage a lovely text letting him know the morning went swimmingly well.
I went to the shop and things were great! A busy weekend left the shop a little unkempt, but nothing too bad. Sherrie from A Ruffled Nest was working with me that morning, so life was good. I was working on the Annie Sloan Chalk Paint cabinet and was so excited to watch it transform from a heap of wood into a beautifully detailed cabinet. We chatted about the weekend, upcoming sales & markets, and enjoyed each others company while we worked. As the day came to an end, the cabinet wasn't finished, but was at a point that the paint could go back up. This is where my day became one of those days where it all fell apart...literately.
When the excitement settled, I turned around to see 46 quarts of paint lying in puddles of Emily, Paris Grey, Old White, Primer Red, Duck Egg Blue, Arles, and Henrietta. Still in shock, I stood there watching my beloved paint stain the carpet. I then realized, I needed to act fast if I were ever to get this mess cleaned up. Grabbing the phone with my paint laden hands, I called Laura from Whimsical Perspective and my good friend Julie. Laura and her Husband brought their shop vac and Julie fled her family to help me. I am so blessed! I have the most awesome friends!
You see, sometimes one of those days are the days you realize how blessed you are.
