What I relearned today is that only I am responsible for my own happiness. Not the Mister, not my family, not my co-workers. Being happy is a frame of mind, you can either choose to be happy, smile and have a good day; or you could choose the opposite. This evening when Mister called and said he would not be able to make it over, I found myself feeling a bit blue and maybe a little angry towards him. And then I realized how I was behaving. Was I really going to spend the evening bummed and blame him??? Heck no! I had things I wanted to do and I was not going to sit around sulking. Besides, Mister and I always have tomorrow.
Speaking of tomorrow, it will be my Mom's 70th birthday. It's hard to think of her as 70 as she is a 5' 2" bundle of dynamite. She moves furniture, carries heavy bags of groceries, drives EVERYWHERE - this woman knows a shortcut to the corner. Should have been a cab driver in NYC. She's awesome, full of energy (wears me out) and just the best. And I love her lots. So, dinner, tomorrow, with Mom.
Good night all!
