I’m trying to be more positive in my life – hoping that the universe will return the favor. However – this morning? Not so successful. Several things caused me stress and anxiety which had me in a grumpy tizzy bitching and grumbling and spewing negative energy to everyone in my family. I feel bad about this – but I still want to vent about what is causing me discord. That’s what the blog is for, right? So, I’m going to let you know the things pissing me off – but I’m going to try to do it in a positive tone. Let’s see if it can be done.
- Ending LilZ’s birthday last night with a tension headache that wouldn’t go away was totally awesome. The great thing about headaches that won’t go away is that they force you to do a lot of squinting. Which is totally sexy. They also have you putting warm rags on your forehead which helps provide extra moisture to your skin. Moisture is great for helping skin stay wrinkle-free, you know.
- AndyZ waking up constantly throughout the night to cough or sneeze was awesome because it allowed me to catch up on some TV! I actually was able to finish all of Lost. I was afraid I’d get behind – but luckily my sick kid remedied that. Even better? He only seemed to want to sleep in the upright position so I got to spend a good chunk of the night in the recliner! It’s been a long time since I’ve done that, I missed it!
- You know what’s awesome about plumbing problems? It forces us to test our resourcefullness by sending LilZ to a friend’s house to shower and having MrZ boiling pots of water on the stove for a bath. These are the type of real-world lessons our children need to learn, and what better way to learn than by watching us face these challenges head on! And even better? The interesting variety of cursing such issues can inspire in us. When would AndyZ have heard the phrase “Son Of A…Donkey!” if I hadn’t been forced to take a cold shower yesterday!
The sarcasm was too strong for any of that to actually come off as “positive” wasn’t it? Oh, well. I tried.
