This seems to be a phrase that's muttered in our home a lot as of lately..yet I'm quickly starting to realize (perhaps not quickly enough) that maybe this week is like most weeks. Whether its in reference to how busy we are in general, how many out of town trips we have, how many extracurricular activities with the kids we have, or even how much overtime Jon's working, I'm finding myself hearing this phrase a lot.
And yet no matter how many weeks in the last few months we've uttered this phrase, somehow my attitude revolving around it is simply unacceptable. So that's it. I'm going to choose to have a good attitude about it and accept that this week is like most weeks. I'm heeding my very own advice with this one..as I am constantly telling our 4 year old that she has a choice to make. She can choose to throw a fit and be upset about whatever is happening and basically make life within earshot of her feel unlivable, or she can choose to accept it and move on, which makes everyone happier. And I'm afraid I've done just that. I've simply had a negative attitude that this week isn't like most weeks and I'm sitting on pins and needles, anxiously awaiting the week that IS like most weeks....only to be disappointed when that week doesn't come. And all the while I could've been utilizing my energy in much better, more efficient way.
So there you have it. Only the second post (which I haven't been keeping up on because, of course the last two weeks haven't been like most weeks) and I'm already pouring it out. Thought it'd take a little longer, but alas, here we are.
