I feel terrible

Part of my job requires drafting, which is done on the computer. Yesterday it took me about 5 hours to incorporate about 7 drawings all into one. The problem was that the drawing I was creating had to be to scale, & once I got all the drawings together something was wrong. Things were not lining up right & it was just becoming a huge mess. So this morning I had to scrap all that work & re-do it in 3 hours, then make modifications... all of which had to be done before lunch. Stress anyone?

Then I got to the restaurant. As I was scooping nachos into my plate (while telling my folks all my morning stress) my grandmother grabbed the plate in my hand & started yanking on it. Apparently I wasn’t scooping my nachos right. Before I knew it, I GOT IT came out of my mouth. I said it so loudly that people turned. I felt so embarrassed & ashamed. I yelled at an old lady... and my own grandmother at that. I’m such a jerk. I've been beating myself up for it the rest of the afternoon.

And since I had to go back to work I couldn’t even have a margarita. Sad

I am sure your grandma will not hold it against you! maybe just explain what your day was like and i am sure all will be forgiven, especially if you have a margarita with her...or two

Don't beat yourself up honey. It is hard to stop a determined granma! I am sure she understands and loves you just as much.

does anyone ever love us as much as our grandparents do? I don't have any any more so give yours a hug for me! Smile

You are right, when I watch my daughter and my mother together it is such a wonderful site. Grandparents may have the purest love of anyone on earth for their grandkids.

According to my parents my children are incapable of doing anything that requires forgiveness.I think it is in the granparent gene.

Hipchik, you should have turned around to all the onlookers and explained that her hearing aid was off. Smile
Grandma loves you, we love you, let the day go , have sweet dreams and don't let the bed bugs bite.

I loved that 'hearing aid was off' response. LOL Biggrin

Things are much better. My grandmother understood & since she drives my mother crazy my mom thought it was funny. It's not typical of me to go off like that but I guess we all have our breaking points.

I never did get my margarita, but I did go to a charity event last night where local businesses gave out samples of chocolate. So it's all good. Smile


When you wish upon a falling star, your dreams can come true. Unless it's really a meteorite hurtling to the Earth which will destroy all life. Then you're pretty much hosed no matter what you wish for. Unless it's death by meteor.

My daughter is mad at me because I got her a three lb bar of chocolate for Christmas and I have been nibbling. She knows thouugh that Valentine's Day is coming soon and she will clean up at that time Wink
