Not my best day!

Hi friends....
I have to apologize for something I did, without even knowing I did it!
It has been pointed out to me that my cute ( I thought I made it up in my head)
code word to enter the contest this weekend was a nasty slur.
Seriously, at 40, you'd think I'd have heard them all, but no. I am absolutely sick to think I may
have offended anyone through my dumb big mouth!
I have changed the code word, please don't worry those who have entered, you're still good :)
To add to that today,
I attended my cousin's funeral ( who I found out was even more groovy and awesome than I already thought ), I got a ticket, broke my new necklace ( I never buy stuff like that for me ),
and ripped the arm off of my sunglasses.
I give up for today.
Tomorrow will be better.....
I hope....
as long as I keep my foot out of my big dumb bunny

For what it's worth I didn't know it was a slang word. Some days are just yucky ~ I am so sorry your day was so bad! Tomorrow will be better and remember you have a ton of people who really care about you out there in blog-land. Here is a hug from me to you:)

Sorry for the loss of your cousin. It's always tough to lose the terrific people in our lives. Here's to a better day today!

PS, Is it bad that I really, really want to know what the code was?


Lori Rosenberg said...

First, and most importantly, I am so sorry about your cousin. My condolences to you and your family.

Second, I saw your code word and thought to my self, "how cute!" I, also, had absolutely no idea it was a nasty slur. Anyone could easily make the same mistake and I'm sure that no one thinks you did it on purpose.

Lastly, my fingers are crossed that you have a better today! You certainly deserve it!

Hugs to you!

****That was me giving you a big hug! I'm so sorry for the loss of your cousin, Nikki. Prayers to you and your family.

I'm 50 (ok 50-something :0)and have never heard that word was a slur?

Some days are just the pits, but know that we all LOVE YOU and think you are amazing, caring, wonderful, giving, oh so creative and kind, with a heart of gold!

Tomorrow will be a better day!

Oh Nikki! It is time to break out the cheesecake. I am so sorry for everything!


Nikki said...

Awwww...... thanks my friends! You're all such blessings to me! Thank you for overlooking my foot in the mouth And for your thoughts! My cousin was an amazing man! I'm blessed to call his children not only family, but friends too! Lubs to you all! xox

sspeller said...

Wow! I guess I am in the dark too. Would never have guessed that your "code" word was a nasty slur? Anybody who has read your blog regularly would know that your intentions were completely pure. Don't let it get you down! Sorry too for your bad day, but that's the great thing about life. Each day we are blessed with comes standard with its very own "do over, clean slate" button that God presses for us each and every morning...

I am so sorry to hear about your cousin. When you stack all the other on top of that, it is just the pits. What I tell my kiddos about a bad day is that they ALWAYS get better. But I must admit, the arm of the sunglasses just might have sent me over the edge. I didn't know your code word was not OK either. We definitely would have been in the dark together on that one.
Here's to a WONDERFUL week. Amy
