Happiness Experiment - Day 16 (of 21)
Tuesday, August 06, 2013
Truth be told, this day could not have gone worse. So it's going to be a stretch for me to do this today.
1. I took all three kids to the eye doctor this morning. I was prepared for a purchase of three pairs of glasses and an astronomical bill. Come to find out every single one of them has an astigmatism and is nearsighted. However, the younger two are not severe enough yet to require glasses unless they have trouble focusing in school. So, ended up only having to get ONE kid new lenses (b/c she likes her old frames). Total cost for all exams and new glasses: $106. NOT BAD! Thankful for AMAZING vision insurance!
2. I'm thankful that my kids got teachers that they like. We went to check the lists this afternoon and they were very pleased.
3. I am thankful that my kids start school tomorrow. That is the honest truth. Ugh.
Positive from today? Ummm...oh. Got $25 in free groceries from Kroger b/c I transferred a prescription over from KMart. Needed that reallllly badly...so that is a plus!
Nope. Not today. :(
Day 2 of the Oprah Winfrey/Deepak Chopra 21-Day Meditation Challenge.
Today's centering thought: I am a radiant spiritual being.
Ha. Wow. I felt LESS than radiant all day today. In fact, quite the opposite. But it was interesting to hear that who I am as a person is not defined by what happens around me or even by my own turbulent emotions. I didn't do my meditation until 11pm tonight. I'll definitely be doing them early morning from here on out to start the day out right.
RANDOM ACT OF KINDNESS
I don't think I was kind to one soul today. For shame. Oh well...tomorrow is brand new, right? *SIGH*
