and with a bolt of lightning...it's over!

Yay!!!!  As of Wednesday night...say, about 8:00 pm...my funk was offically over!!!!!  Yep, that's right!

What happened, you ask?  Let's start from the beginning, shall we?

Picture this.  Me, Layla, Sammie.  Our dog.  Layla lounging on the couch, watching Good Luck Charlie, her new favorite t.v. show, before we head upstairs for a bath.  Sammie...he's chillin' somewhere in the house.  Me?  Naked, in the downstairs powder room, dying my own hair.  Nice, huh?  You like that visual, dontcha?!?  M-hmmmm....

Well, okay...then picture this!  Me in that state....and then the power goes off!!!!

Yeah.  For real.  Houston hasn't had any...I mean ANY....significant rain all.this.year.  But it decides it is high time to rain.  And not only that.  But to storm.  And storm in a may-jah way! 

So my lights go out just after I put some color on my roots...and on the ends of my hair.  Then...nothing!  No light.  All darkness.

So that did it!  The funk was OVER!!!!  Oh-ver!!!! 

I couldn't help but stand there in the complete darkness and giggle.  Naked.  With my hair half colored.  The other half not.  With my baby girl screaming for me on the couch.  And my dog cowering in the corner.

The funk was over.  Reality check set in. 

I really do NOT have it that bad!  And I need to get over myself.  I am lucky I have a broken ankle to hobble around on.  And a mother who can loan me her car.  And this house.  The house that is keeping me dry from the pouring rain.  And that baby girl!  That baby girl who is crying FOR ME!!!! 

I like to call it, "a check yourself before you wreck yourself" moment!

So that is that.  I was in a funk.  Now it's over.  I am glad. 

I still have no new car.  (boooo!)

I still have a broken ankle..."that is repairing..."  (yay!!!!)  And I don't have to wear that big boot foot cast thingy anymore....that's fabulous.  Except for the fact that the broken ankle "popped" last night.  And not in a good way.  So.  I am still in the boot.  But it's okay.  I'm over myself, remember? 

So instead of reading all.of that!!!! 

I could have showed you this picture....

This is the Meli Faif Life....I thought you knew?

Funky funks are no fun. Boo. I gotta tell ya, I giggled while reading this story. Lord knows we all need a humbling moment from time to time to kick us in our arse. Hang in there sweet cheeks! I hope your ankle continues to heal and you get your car situation all worked out ASAP.

From time to time, we all need to have a funk. Such is life. We wouldn't be human if we didn't sit down, have a pity party - which I seem to be doing ALL the time, lol - and just wallow. It's alright! And know that we'll be here for ya.

p.s. the whole picture of what happened that night really made me giggle. :)

So glad you are out of your funk! And that you have a funny story to go along with it! I'm sure it wasn't funny at the time - but picturing it now probably is! And at least it was something like the electricity to bring you back and not something major. Now hopefully the ankle will continue to get better and you find a new car!

And I didn't respond to your Aaliyah post but I meant to. I can't believe its been 10 years! So sad to lose her so young, thanks for keeping her memory alive with your post and the music you got playing!
