Not So Wordless Wednesday

I've seen other blogs that do wordless Wednesdays, which I think is neat. The problem I have is that I like to write/talk/elucidate/go on and on and on... so with that in mind, here's my not so wordless Wednesday post...

Yesterday was sort of a crappy day. I got so angry and frustrated about a situation that I ended up bawling all over the office (which I HATE to do). The day got better but then worse. I'm very thankful it's over. (Interesting, that I was choosing to be thankful during all of that. Thanks God, for growth!) Anyway, my darling sweet hubby gave me an early Christmas present to cheer me up and make the day better. If you know me AT ALL, you know I adore Jane Austen, and especially her novel, Pride And Prejudice. (My blog's name actually came from this novel.) CC found this children's counting primer hardcover book and I LOVE it! It's adorable, the pictures are cute, and hilarious! I looked at it multiple times and am enjoying it immensely. This kind gesture by my hubby definitely made my day and cheered me up!

Yesterday also marked the end to my six months of earring stud exile and the beginning of my obsession with all kinds of earrings. I can now wear whatever I want whenever I want, which makes me incredibly happy. The downside is I had my first casualty this morning. I wasn't even to work yet, when I realized I'd lost one of my purple sparkly Mickey heads (even with the rubber backing on!). Especially sad when you realize I got these at Disney World, so I can't just go back and buy another pair. I called CC to look at home, but I am pretty sure it's lost and gone forever. Fortunately I brought a back up pair to work with me today, just in case something happened.

Hopefully the day only gets better, but I am sad I can't wear purple sparkles today. Oh well.

I'm so sorry for your day yesterday. That makes me sad for you. I thank God that you were thankful through it all and looked to Him to get through it. I also thank your hubby for his sweetness toward you. What a fun surprise and ending to a crappy day. I hope today was better.

I love cuppakim's suggestion of making the lone earring into a pin or necklace (that way you can still enjoy). :)
