Stupid Mistakes

I can't be the only one who makes dumb mistakes!  Surely there are more out there who forget deadlines, take on too much and assume those around you can "handle" seemingly normal responsibilities. Life is just tough that way, right?



Take this, for instance.  This is probably not the time to rush out and tell your husband that, "Hey, isn't today the deadline for FAFSA?".  Working under the hood trumps all other pending issues and will most likely cause one (or 2 or 3) to forget that whole important deadline!

Yea, me missed the date!  🙁



Oh this!  You know what's wrong!  I don't have to go into detail about how my teenager couldn't find her glasses and decided to borrow mine and when she didn't quite like them….threw them with a fierce vengeance tossed them down in the floorboard.  I've finally replaced them, but my squinty facial expression still sticks with me.  Botox?  Please?


I've told you this sad story but it's worth sharing once again.  I wanted this cup, it's a Lilly Pulitzer (my fave designer).  I bit the bullet and ordered it on my anniversary (Happy A Day to me) and the 2nd day I had it at work….some dude out of his seat knocked it off a desk flying to its poor little cracked up death.  I used it, broken, anyway until I dropped it myself recently.

It's really gone now!


The point is, we make stupid mistakes!  There isn't anything we can do about it AFTER THE FACT!  Life throws curve balls.  I spent yesterday crying over the missed FAFSA date.  It ruined my whole day!  I still do not know the extent of the damage that error will cost us.  But, I can't give up.  I have to go on.

And so do you!

If you've flubbed up….trust God.  That's all we can do, for worry never gained us a thing!

Happy Monday & time change day people!  Oh and whatever you do, try not to make a stupid mistake!
