It's as easy as choosing sometimes
Today I woke up and thought, "I'm going to just be today." Obviously there was breakfast to be made, laundry to be done, beds to be made, etc., but I wasn't going to hustle anywhere, put makeup on, or expect anything from anyone. We had an unusually late night last night so the kids slept about 45 minutes later than they usually do. That's always a good start to the day. Chris came home after having been gone for lots of days. Drew and I played Letter, Letter, Find the Missing Letter (a brilliant game I made up), I built towers with William, I made a peanut butter cake with peanut butter frosting, I cleaned out the toy closet, and now I sit here at 3:36pm IN MY PAJAMAS. Lauren is napping and Chris took the big kids to the grocery store because tonight he's making firehouse chicken caesar salad for dinner. After the kids go to bed I'll head to the gym to work off a bite or two of my fabulous dinner. I kind of think the day could have had a whole different vibe if I hadn't woken up with a mission for the day. It easily could have been a crappy rainy day, stuck in the house, nothing to do, blah, blah, blah. It's all about the attitude and I'm so glad today I chose to have a good one.
