No Good, Horriable, Bad Day!!!

Well, I had a pretty bad day! It started with a bit of bad communication last night between a parent, a teacher and I (plus my supervisor) and ended with one thing going wrong after another. Let me tell you a few "bad" things that happened today. Well, in the school I work at there is a student bathroom (that we can use) and a "teacher" bathroom that we can use, but we need a key. I very rarely use the "teacher" bathroom because I don't like grabbing the key, but sometimes I like the privacy and the mirrors are a little better. Anyways, I grabbed the key today to use the bathroom (it is on a key chain with a lot of other keys) and went to open the door; however, the key got stuck in the door and I could not get it out. What makes it worst is the key (I thought) opened the "teacher's" bathroom is also the spare key to my supervisor's office. Why I didn't think this was weird today is beyond me.

So, I went to get the custodian and he was on his lunch break. I went back about 30 minutes later to track him down and he went to check out the problem. Things did not look good.... He took one look and said "Do you still want the key if it does not come out in one piece?" I said give it a try and let me know.

Meanwhile, my supervisor came back from a meeting inquiring about the key because she accidental locked herself out of her office.

Really could this all be happening in one day.......

After explaining the story and watching my supervisor become a little disappointed, I tried to carry on with other work until the "key problem" was fixed. A little while later my supervisor entered the room where I was working and asked me if I would go on a "walk" with her to "talk". Well I was SO nervous I thought "this is it, I am gone." However, it turned out that she just wanted to chat about a few other cases. Once we returned, to my surprise, the key/door was fixed and the custodian returned the key in one piece. THANK YOU!!!!! Anyways the afternoon stress enticed my "bad mood" and I could not wait to leave work!!!

In attempts to cheer myself up, I did my two favorite things: Eat and Worked out!!! I did 15 minutes on the Stair Climber followed by my favorite workout class: Total Body Condition.

Then followed by a yummy meal: Chicken Sausage, Homemade Sweet Potato Fries and Tomato and Basil with a Balsamic Reduction Sauce. Oh and a few grilled zucchini


His: Pork instead of Chicken Sausage and Yukon Gold instead of Sweet Potatoes

I made the balsamic reduction sauce by boiling the balsamic until think
Note: Do not over boil (I did it on the first try) because it will turn into a thick and stick candy like substance. As for the sweet potato fries I just cut up a sweet potato and sprinkled salt, black pepper, red pepper, sugar, canola oil and cumin on them and baked at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. PERFECTION!!!!

What do you do to cheer yourself up after a bad day?
