Dodi and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

I thought you'd enjoy a self portrait of yours truly today.   Here are some of the highlights of my day:

  •  Ladybug ripped the vaccume cord out of the wall and it broke off.  
  • Friends came over and played in the basement.  Costco table was broken and everything  (including beads, and newly organized boxes) was spread over the floor.  
  • Ladybug charged Sunshine with murder on her mind, knocked them both over injurring both and throwing a hot dog with ketchup and mustard on the carpet. 
  • 2 children I don't know jumped into my car and stomped the antique plates I'd just purchased for a shower into small smithereens.
  • Husband took chair downstairs to help bad day.  Slipped on magazine a friend left on stairs, strained knees and legs, flipping chair into the wall and left a foot long hole in the wall.
Dodi and the terrible horrible no good very bad day.
For those of you who say you envy my "perfect" life, I thought I'd give a little reality. 

I don't really like chocolate, ice cream makes me sick, What to do with a day like this except put everyone to bed?  Tomorrow has got to look really good in comparison.
