Hello, my name is Mrs Grumpy Butt!

LOL well its good that I can have a laugh at myself today, cause boy, it's been one of those days that started so well, then dissolved into crap not long after.

We had a little sleep in here this morning (well, Mr B didn't, he left for work before 7am ;) ) but the little boys and I did. It was 8am that I was awoken by 4 little eyes staring at me with smiles on their faces. Awww what a lovely way to wake up. Then not long after, whilst I was laying in bed talking to the gentlemen's, I hear a little 'Mummm' and sure enough Master P was awake. How I LOVE it when he wakes up in a good mood like that, and not awoken abruptly by a noisy brother that makes him cry.

Anyway, we got up and got breaky going, had some music on (Kings of Leon for those playing at home LOL and no its not 'Sex is on Fire' its 'Six is on Fire' in our house ;) ) and we were all happy and laughing.

Until I made a phone call. I rang up to find out about a little kids basketball group for Master L. We really want to get him into a team sport as he is having a few confidence issues and this would be great for him. Anyway, on their website it clearly states for 4-8yr olds, COOL I think :) So I rang to find out what we need to do, when it starts etc only to be rudely told that Master L is too young (4 1/2yrs). Geez people, if you don't want kids who are 4yrs old then please, don't put the starting age as 4 on your website! Anyway, we are going to go to the open day to see more about it, talk to the actual coaches rather than a rude admin person and hopefully we might have some joy.

About 2 minutes after I got off the phone, it rang again. Now this was the one that blew the day away. Turns out the money that we had secured for our new car, wasn't so secure after all :( So, for now, no new car :( :( *sighs* I will stay positive though as we WILL get another car and it will be soon.

So because of those 2 phone calls I was officially Mrs Grumpy Butt for hours later. The boys also seemed to bounce off this and became 'precious little darlings' too but it took me a while to realise they were only doing it cause I was. So, we shook it all off, picked ourselves up, cleansed the house and the place finally started feeling better again.

But it truly amazes me though, how a day can start out so great, and then a couple of things happen and it just goes CRAZY!

Tomorrow WILL be a better day :) :)

Sorry to hear about the car issues Mandi - hopefully it will all be sorted soon.

As for the basketball - I'd be saying something to them when you go to the open day. Both about the incorrect information on the website and thr rude ass woman on the phone!!

I hope today is better - you get a call from the coach asking Mr L to join the team and a finance company calls to offer you a ton of cash!!!!

It's amazing how the Law of Attraction just keeps spiralling, heh? I'm with Bec - good luck for having a WONDERFUL day today!!

Oh Bec, don't worry, I will say something about the woman. Hey maybe she was being a Mrs Grumpy Pants day too LOL

Yeah Deb, it was one of those moments when I knew exactly what was going on, but was so far down that I really didn't know what to do to get out of the spiral. Was trying damn hard to get into my vortex LOL Got there eventually though thank goodness! Am back in it today, so am VERY happy about that!

Hey Mandi, If it makes you feel any better no one is lending money at the moment, we had pre approval from toyota finance which ALL our cars are through and we have never missed a payment and even paid out loans early and right before we picked up my Landcruiser they called the dealership and withdrew their approval! WTH??? We did get finance though from the next company (underwritten with our bank and at a better rate too! so there you go ) so dont loose hope, just as your day can go from good to bad it can also go from bad to good :-) !
Oh and my pet hate is kids sporting groups because of that exact reason, hopefully you'll have better luck talking to the directly...

Mandi it can be so hard to get out of it sometimes. Unfortunately I know that oh so well... although I am getting better. Glad to hear you are having a better day today!!!!
