There is a lot on my mind that I just want to talk about. First, I never understood why people hated Monday so much. I mean, it is just another day, right? Well, today, it is Monday. Today, I don't like Monday. I don't have a job outside of the house. Instead, I'm a stay-at-home Mom. Today, I just felt like things didn't start off the way they should. Normally, my Mondays start around 7am when Mason wakes me up. I cook breakfast, I take Allen to speech therapy, and I workout at the gym afterwards. Instead, I woke up to this:
"This" would be six loads of laundry that I decided not to finish folding last night at midnight. It was ready to greet me this morning. Blah. Daniel left for work at 5am this morning. This, is also not normal. He is normally at home, and I've been spoiled having him around. I don't know how to react when he has to work remotely in the surrounding area, instead of at home. I did not make my usual waffles and bacon for the boys and Daniel for breakfast. Folding laundry almost made us late for speech therapy. I'm always ten minutes early, but today I was rushing to get there in time. The gym was unusually crowded this morning, and the boys never took their naps.
Wow, do I sound whiny? I know there are more important things to complain about. So, I will do that.
I want to talk about boundaries. This has been something I've been trying to define in my life. I hate when people tell me how things are going to be, instead of being a considerate person, and asking me. I don't have time for this. If boundaries can not be respected, then I can not be a respectful person in return. With the new year coming up, I'm going to be re-establishing and re-defining my relationships with others.
Also, I don't like being placed in positions where I'm being forced to feel as if I have to do something, or the person is going to respond negatively. Don't be surprised when I decided we can no longer have a relationship.
Today, remember the following:
AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT YOU HAVE THE POWER TO DECIDE: THIS IS NOT HOW THE STORY IS GOING TO END.
YOU ARE IN CHARGE OF HOW YOU FEEL, AND TODAY YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE HAPPINESS.
I feel so much better typing this out. I like to consider myself a tactful person, and I feel like actions always speak louder than words. I won't confront you, but how I respond to the way you treat me will hopefully be an indication that I simply deserve better.
Okay, enough complaining. Let's talk about something else. How about the flu? I took the boys to get flu shots today too. Here are some awesome pictures of the event:
|I decided to bribe Allen and Mason with lollipops before the doctor came in to give them shots.|
|Mason finished first, so he started eyeing Allen's treat.|
|Since he was attacking Allen, he got sent to the chair. Awh, look at that face!|
Nothing but the best,
