So what does your day sound like?

I’m sitting on my porch trying to figure out how I went wrong today. Maybe the stars didn’t align just right? Maybe it’s the rain? Maybe it’s because I’m wearing my shirt with the holes because I haven’t done laundry?

Whatever the reason, I have the stupid pain that starts in my belly and shoots into my heart, then tightens my brain. I don’t know if y’all are familiar with that but it’s the only way I can explain it. It’s the one that makes me cry and makes my heart hurt from thoughts.

Anyway...the sound.

So I’m on the porch and I hear this sloppy, clumpy sound. I look up and across the way in the pasture, one of the cows is taking an enormous dump. And that, my friends is the sound the perfectly sums up how I feel today. Hot clumps of grassy, slimy cow poo falling onto wet, mucky grass.

Envy me.

[@6912,Pinkstarburst] i was wondering if it could be food allergies

[@533101,Penny] No. It isn’t anything physical. But thank you.
I'm familiar with that feeling that you describe.
Sorry that you have it today.🤗

sorry but i had to laugh at the cow patty story lmaooo... isn't it funny that some dogs see those dried-out cow patties & play with them like toys?????? just goes to show what a lil perspective does... i hope these feelings pass & you have some peace in a new day.

[@417823,lovelywarpedlemon] 🙂 We had a hunting dog who would roll in them to mask his scent. Guess he wanted to sneak up on them. It was terrible.

Thank you for the smile.

I had a weekend like that. Attacked and went into defensive mode, nothing I could say or do was right.
I just gave up, and bit the bullet.
Sometimes you can't win, swallowed my male pride and said, yes dear, you're right. 🙄😔🤷‍♀️
