Monday and I could not be happier!
I only have to work Monday and Friday of this week because I am taking Ethan and Rylen to a Laurie Berkner concert in northern Illinois on Wednesday. All of my kids have loved listening to the Queen of Children’s Music since they were born and I am surprising my two younger boys with and amazing, live performance in a historic setting!
Monday and Friday, that’s all. Today was half over, I was on my lunch hour and my Jimmy quits on me and won’t start, halfway home on my lunch. I am blessed to get a ride home and able to call for a tow. I couldn’t call because my phone was out of minutes and I actually forgot it at home.
I had two choices sitting there, I could get upset, which would solve nothing, make nothing better and only hurt my mindset. My second choice was to be grateful that my event was already paid, the hotel was already paid and my rental car was already taken care of and take my boys on an amazing week adventure we would never forget!
What did I choose???
#2 All The Way!!!
It made for a crazy day because I hitched a ride back to the town where my work is and when my mother came to pick my up afterward, she locked her keys in her car and spent the next two hours, walking a lot, finding out how to get into my mothers home without a key and hoping that a neighbor downstairs from my mother was not dead. Don’t worry, she was just in a medicated sleep and could not hear us for some time.
Anyway, tomorrow Ethan, Rylen and I will begin our journey in our rental car and with us will be ten copies of Barney & Lexi! I will be swapping books at the show and taking two of Laurie’s book home with Ethan and Rylen!
Time to gather things up before bed, just remember, you always have two choices, get upset or get determined! One will take you nowhere and one will take you everywhere! I will post pictures by Thursday!! Have a great Tuesday!!
