Not a bad day, generally
Saturday, February 19, 2011
It's been a day baked in frustration thanks to my 5 year old, but over all, I'm actually pleased with today. I picked up a few new books at the library (which I probably SHOULDN'T have done since I'm in the middle of about 4 right now, but they were graphic novels and therefore quick reads). I was going to go shopping for cheap things at Deals while Rich was tutoring, but Teddy's temper tantrum cancelled that plan. I tried to take the boys to the park, but it was too windy and started to rain. I got things done online that I needed to do (including getting two more swaps out the door... woo-hoo!) I've enjoyed my night out at Starbucks. I'm ready to go home and have a good night's sleep.
I'm trying to remember that attitude makes up a large part of whether I think my day will be successful or not. It's sometimes hard to remember, especially when I have disappointments (like Teddy's fits and the fact that I didn't get into a study I was hoping to get into). But even when I look back at those things, I can see more good than bad. My husband let me have a night out to myself, AND he let me bring the laptop with me so I could get things done. I've walked over 5000 steps today. I've eaten relatively healthy (even getting a skinny at Starbucks and a low fat coffee cake). I've gotten things done that I needed to. I didn't go nuts when we went shopping at Big Lots.
It's all in how you look at it. And I'm choosing to look at it in the positive.
And now, I think it's time for me to choose to clean up the table, slip the laptop back into it's case and head back home to my husband. There are more things to do tomorrow and more ways to make it (as Teddy would say) the Best Day Ever.
Have a great night, all. I hope your day was as positive as I'm choosing to remember mine, and that tomorrow is even better.
