I Forgot Bananas and it Ruined My Day


I try hard to be an efficient homemaker and keep my ducks in a row. So when David said we were out of bananas, I didn't worry about it because I knew I was going grocery shopping and would get more.


And I did get more - a lot more - but somehow I didn't make it home with them. I was chatting with the cashier and didn't check the bag carousel to be sure I got everything. 
It must have been because I was sick and PMSing, but it hit me hard. I felt like a failure. David needed bananas and I forgot them!!!  What kind of a homemaker was I???!!!  A big, fat failure - that's what kind. I sat on the couch and cried. 

So this morning I'm laughing at myself for getting so upset over feeling like a failure over missing bananas. The laundry's done; there's food in the pantry; dinner's made; the house is clean. Missing bananas just isn't a big deal!

Do you ever overreact over smal things?

  1. Patty,
    It happens to me on occasion. It is usually when I am PMSing or tired. I used to be able to look at my calendar & determine if I was PMSing or not. But, since start the BIG change, all bets are off. ;)

    1. I'm right there with you, Jodi. The BIG change is not for sissies.

  2. Oh, Patty! It wasn't the bananas that ruined your day. It was more likely the PMS thing. It might also be a bit of perfectionism... but we won't go there... LOL. Grab some bananas on your next trip to town. David is the forgiving sort...

    1. David definitely is. As a matter of fact, he had stopped at HyVee that morning to buy bananas to hold us over until I went to the store. So we already had a few. It really wasn't a big deal at all. Stupid PMS.
