I go to see my therapist every Wednesday.
My husband and I go to see our therapist every Thursday.
Between the therapists, the kids, the blog, the swim team, the furniture business, the e-course, the private swim lessons, the baseball games, the end-of-year parties, the concerts, the recitals, and all the other things going on right now,
sometimes I mess up.
So on Thursday, as I was driving to the appointment for the marriage therapist (MT), my phone rang.
I looked at it.
It was the MT.
I must have fucked up again.
My heart started racing as it does when you realize you have fucked up.
I answered the phone.
“Susie. It’s MT.
Where are you?”
“I’m almost there. I’ll be there in 10 minutes. I didn’t realize I was late. I thought I was early, actually,” I said, not giving her an opportunity to get a word in.
“You’re not late,” she said.
“I messed up. I don’t know what I was thinking. Someone called in crisis, and I double booked your appointment. Then I realized that you were coming in, but that other person is here right now. I’m so sorry,” she told me.
I hadn’t fucked up!
It was MT!
MT fucked up!
Now I don’ find pleasure in seeing other people mess up.
Well, people that I like, anyway.
But it did feel good to know that someone who supposedly has her act together does that same stuff that I do.
We all do.
So here’s to hoping you have a fuck-up-free day.
But just in case you don’t,
You’re not the only one.
It’s not just us frazzled moms.
Remember that the lady with the neat office, and the stain-free clothes, and the cute accessories, and not a kid in sight,
that lady messes up too.
