Heather and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Wednesday, February 2, 2011

I've been meaning to pick up this book for a while.  I have always loved children's books and do even more now that I, you know, have a child to read them to.



A charming excerpt:

Alexander knew it was going to be a terrible day when he woke up with gum in this hair.
And it got worse...
His best friend deserted him. There was no dessert in his lunch bag. And, on top of all that, there were lima beans for dinner and kissing on TV!

Yesterday, I had my own noteworthy day.

Heather knew it was a terrible day when she woke up nervous about her foot surgery.
And it got worse...
The baby was fussy.  It was 16 degrees in Austin.  The heater in her house broke!  And on top of all that, there were NO space heaters to be found in Austin and she had to sleep in a hotel!

It's 50 degrees inside my house.

Today got better, inch by inch.  The surgery went well.  The heater guy came.  The baby still rocks my socks.

That's good.

Hope this finds you well,
Heather
