As I always say: "the only thing we can really control is our attitude". Bad things are going to happen no matter what. So here are my "turn-arounds" for this Thursday
1.) We came home on Sunday from a weekend out of state to a very messy apartment. And I was immediately ashamed at how much I have been slacking as a homemaker
Turn-around: My last day of work is this Friday and then I will be able to devote more time to keeping an orderly home. Plus, only a small percentage of people on this earth can say they have "too much stuff".
2.) The sole of my only pair of flat shoes (not sandals or gym shoes) ripped off
Turn-around: They weren't very good arch-supporting shoes anyway
3.) One of the small diamonds fell out of my wedding ring and I have no idea where it went
Turn-around: People probably assume I've been married longer than 1.5 years because my ring already has so much character, and that is nice because then I won't have to hear those "give it a few years" comments people give newlyweds about how marriage will become awful.
4.) It is fall which means my sinus headaches are thriving and I am in horrible pain all the time
Turn-around: It gives me an excuse to ask for head massages from my husband, and being as wonderful as he is, he always obliges. It makes me feel loved
5.) I found out my poor overworked husband has to work first AND third shift this weekend.
Turn-around: At least it will give me an excuse to get out of the house in the afternoon so he can sleep. Perhaps I'll try to find a replacement pair of shoes for the ones that died.
Do you have any turn-arounds to share this week?
