Monday - I need to hop on my own bandwagon today.
I've had a Murphy's Day - today. I've faught to keep myself positive, but I'll admit - I was a tad bit (lol) frustrated today.
Got the GS to school and went and washed my hair (and it did not turn out so well today - it looks pooped), started flying though my emails, when all of a sudden - the whole entire house had a power failure.
I was right in the middle of a long letter! Well, that's gone. I tried to get on my computer all day long! Nope couldn't get on. I'm a computer-holic so this was so rough for me. It drove me nuts and I was worried if the computer was even salvageable - I waited for hubby to get home and wouldn't you know - it worked right away with no problem.
Had to make dinner and clean all that up - then it was my night to put the GS to bed - so not much computer time for me today.
My keyless alarm quit working so I bought a replacement one at Ebay. I can't find my valet button - which I know I have, I know where it is supposed to be - yet it is not there. Can't fix that either.
Money is tight. My GS wanted something at Toys R Us - he 'really really' NEEDED! Abd I'm a push over.
Daughter and I are having some words today too.
School has been a little rough for the GS - so we have to deal and be a little more forceful with his teacher.
Should I go to my room and cry, yell at someone, feel sorry for myself, kick the dog or . . . or what?
Now I did have some of those moments today - I will admit. I was whining some too.
Now that I'm taking some breathing time and some thinking time - I'm going to pick myself up, dust myself off, complain to you all (lol), and then I've decided to have a good rest of the night! YEAH!
It is a choice (even for me as I am a work in progress too) - at least not to waste the rest of the day!
