Unexpected To-Do’s

Oh, what a day! It’s inevitable that when we have a to-do list that’s a mile long that there’s going to be some unexpected problems, right? Something about Murphy’s Law?

Well in between spin class and my noon client, I realized I desperately needed an oil change and a little rotation of the tires, and spent an hour here:


Good times, good times. But, $60 bucks later and my car’s bill of health is much better ;)

Combine that with a little Quick Books freak out (i.e. me shouting WHY WON’T YOU RECONCILE?!? at the computer for a good half hour) and let’s just say a few things I planned on getting done is still left hanging ;)

Such is life, right? In these moments you just have to breathe, realize that life isn’t perfect, and do only that which we can control :)

Like having a delightful lunch, for example:


Talk about a delicious lunch!! Acorn squash + baked beans:


And broccoli and GF crackers + hummus:


This will definitely make up for the Clif Bar dinner I’ll be inhaling on my way from training to my double header volleyball game tonight ;)

Any unexpected occurrences happen in your day today?


Off I go!

Remember to let the things you can’t control just rollll off your back. No need to spend energy just getting angry!

Have a great rest of your Monday!

  1. I hate when that happens! Sorry :(
    Baked beans sounds super good right now.

  2. My whole day was unexpected. I left DC on a tiny plane (prompting an inhalation of an anxiety pill), and landed basically crunk. As result, driving was SO not an option and I ended up making the second half of this day a snow day/re-do of Sunday/a personal day because with all of the traffic (besides that whole not-driving fact), it made no sense to go in.

    Wow. Tale.

    Long story short, we are so rolling with it today, lady.

  3. I love baked beans on sweet potatoes, so I bet baked beans on squash is just as delicious. Sorry about the unexpected twists in your day.

  4. Your words encouraged me to just do what I can after getting back to work from the long vacation today and having lots of work to deal with. I was just actually just talking to my husband on my lunch break and saying “it is what it is” for both of us coming back to work. Then I read your post and was even more encouraged to keep thinking similar thoughts to what you wrote. Thanks for that!
