    I remember once working overnight and then having my ACT test right after my shift ended@ It was horrible!

  2. Debbie Welchert says

    I remember my parents stopping to look at one of the huge metal slides, which was closed, where you had to climb up 50 steps to get to the top and they gave you a rug to slide down the slide. I was really young and was wearing a dress and decided to go down the slide without my parents permission and I didn’t have a rug and I went down anyway. When I got to the bottom, the slide had tore off my little underwear, I wasn’t hurt. This happen to be on a sunday and no stores were opened. So here I am wearing a dress with no underwear. I just wanted to die. That was my long long day.

  3. Mary Happymommy says

    My longest day was when I was in 8th grade and my mother informed me we were moving in with her boyfriend, who she had just met. A week after we moved in, she decided it was a mistake.

  4. Jennifer Marie says

    I had a long day when I was 13 and found out my parents were getting divorced and my mom was moving out. Broke my heart and I remember being up all night.

  5. Regina says

    My memory of a long hard day was when my sister went into labor with my niece. I was only 15 and we were there until 3 AM…needless to say, I wanted to go home.

    I helped with a charity yard sale, in July, I had to get up so early and it was the hottest day of the year, seriously. I was so exhausted by the end of the sale but it was for a good cause.

  7. Sarah Hall says

    My long hard day was the day my first child was born. My husband was overseas with the Army so I went thru the birth without any support. I was very young and very scared.

  8. Lisa Brown says

    My log days were when I would sit at the window waiting for my sister to come home from school. I looked forward to it.

  9. Teresa Young says

    My son broke his arm the morning of my cousins wedding – after 2 doctors, X-rays, the wedding, I was falling asleep at the reception.

  10. Tim says

    I remember when I was around 13, my dads parents got into a car accident and my parents went to be with them at the hospital. For the whole night we went unsupervised so we stayed up all night on a school night. The next day at school was the longest day of my life because I was so tired.

  11. Tabathia says

    when I was in middle school and my pocket on my pants ripped and I had ot use a safety pin to hold it close so my panties wouldn’t show

  12. Ashley Hatten says

    staying up all night with my sick child and then getting up to go to work the next day on less than 2 hours of sleep…whew…but I made it!

  13. laura ari says

    When we were young, my parents made up pull weeds between the bricks of our pool deck. It seemed like torture at the time. Poor me – pulling weeds around the inground pool!

  14. Peggy says

    a long hard day for me has been the last few days, I put my beloved dog to sleep on the 6th and just dealing with it has been very hard


  15. says

    Oh boy there’s so many! My most recent was Monday. My neighbor and I are on a mission to make a 10 mile run before it snows. We are up to 8. Monday we ran 8 miles in the morning. Then, that evening, we had a boot camp workout with a friend who is a personal trainer. 10 minutes into boot camp, I was regretting those 8 miles! When my body hit the bed, I was out in about 20 seconds! Whew!

    I broke my grandma’s vase and tried to glue it together w/o my parents knowing…..very long day waiting to see if they would notice

  18. Ellen B says

    A long day was when I was in labor with my second son. My husband was taking an exam at school and I didn’t want to bother him after he worked all day and he was at school at night. Well I decided I couldn’t wait anymore and called the school – yes he was in the middle of taking his test. He had to leave. My son wasn’t born until 6:33 that next morning. Guess I could have waited until he finished his test lol.
