It's all in the attitude

Last night was prom night. I was not looking forward to going. I did not have a dress and I put off buying one until yesterday. For the entire 2 weeks of break I had a bad attitude about the prom and I was not going to let it go. In the back of my mind I thought I might be able to get out of it. But yesterday dawned and the prom loomed and I had no decent excuse not to go. So while I was planning my day yesterday I decided to change my attitude. I could dread it and not want to do it and make myself miserable all day over it, or I could just bite the bullet and accept that I was going to the prom. So I accepted it, put the prep into my plan for yesterday and got on with my life. What a difference that made. I had a great day yesterday. I got a lot accomplished and I had a decent time at the prom. It was boring - those things generally are - put the time went by fast and before I knew it it was time to go home. So not a bad night at all.

I'm facing a similar situation today. It's my last day of break and I can either lament all day about it being the last day, or buck it up and get things done and enjoy my last day. Guess which path I'm choosing???

Today's to-do list:
  • Take Bella to the marsh for a walk
  • Get Gas
  • Clean birdroom 
  • Do laundry
  • Prepare for school tomorrow
  • Get clothes ready for the week
  • Grocery shopping
  • Walk the dogs
  • Train Bella
There you have it.  Not a terribly long list which means there is plenty of time to enjoy my day - and it looks like it's going to be a beautiful one.  So now, it's off to the showers and take Bella for a walk.
