Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.....

I am having a really bad day.  One of those days when you just want to crawl back in bed and get a "re-do" in hopes that it might be better.  This very well be one of the most blah days of my pregnancy in terms of non pregnancy related frustrations.

I realize that I am blessed - I have an amazing husband, a healthy baby girl that will be here in 2 weeks and 2 days, wonderful and supportive family, and friends that keep me sane. 

I had a wonderful appointment today - I lost 3 pounds (probably just water weight), my blood pressure is back down, and we found out Kate has some hair!

But, today still sucks.

This morning I was dropping the dogs off at Happy Tails for day care.  I got there right when they opened at 7 but there were lots of cars in the parking lot.  I figured there was just a delay in bringing all of the dogs back to the rooms so I got out with Sadie and Ollie - both on very short leashes - just enough to be able to walk.  Sadie likes to go potty before going to play.  I realized after we got out of the car that HT was late to open and there were about 6-7 dogs outside waiting by the door.  No big deal.  Sadie decided to do her business right in the middle of them all instead of making it to the grass.  Again, I have a bag - no big deal.  Well, one of the dogs waiting was not on a leash (I didn't realize this) and ran up to Sadie right as she was finishing going to the bathroom and freaked her out. 

She got defensive (I mean who wouldn't if someone was getting all up in your business) and spun around quickly which startled the other dog.  The unleashed dog proceeded to run under my feet and trip me. 

I went straight down on the concrete.  Flat on my butt. 

And the unleashed dog owner had the nerve to get an attitude with me while I was trying to pull my 9 month pregnant, dress wearing self gracefully getting off the ground.  She looked at me and said "Well, aren't you doing to check on my dog?"

Then I got ugly.  I'm not going to lie - I tore the woman a new one - and didn't use nice words.  Put your ugly dog on a lease and then this wouldn't happen.  I mean you are really worried about your dog when a super pregnant lady has just fallen (b/c of your stupid dog)?  I am still mad about it.  And I was so worried that something happened to the baby.  All is fine but, that is not how I wanted to start my day off.

So, I come in to work already upset and my computer won't turn on.  After about 45 minutes it decides to turn on but won't really work.  After about another hour it magically starting working. 

I had a big presentation today and let's just say it didn't go too well.  And it wasn't because of my work - it was because some people like to throw others under the bus.  That's all I'm going to say about that.

Also, my company's medical office doesn't like my doctor's paperwork dismissing me from work.  So, my last day is who knows when.  I may just take the time unpaid - which is so frustrating since my doctor has specifically said no work past August 9 and I have coverage to go out and be paid 100% of my salary for up to 10 or 12 weeks. 

It all just makes me want to cry and eat brownies.

To end on something positive, we got this beauty in last night.  I'll post non iPhone pictures tonight or tomorrow.

Holy mackeral, I would've called the cops. You were assaulted for sure. The world is too full of total idiots. I sincerely hope the rest of your day gets better.

Oh on, I am so sorry you've had such a crappy day. I would be livid at that dog owner and they deserved every word you said to them. This is definitely a day when a glass of wine would be nice huh?

I can't believe that stupid dog owner! I would be falling over myself trying to make sure the pregnant lady my dog knocked down was okay.

Hope tomorrow is a better day and your work stuff can get straightened out.

The Lindsey we all know and love was present at HT that day right?! I would have LOVED to watch you tell that stupid lady a thing or two! She deserves everything she got. I'm so glad you and Kate are okay though. I hope your time left is better and that you get to enjoy you last few days!
