“One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this: to rise above the little things.”
This is the quote of the day from Real Simple. It fits my day. I was thinking that I needed a re-do of the first day of the year because it didn't turn out quite the way it was suppose to.
I had expectations for today. It is after all the first day of the new year and the new decade.
This is going to be MY year. It is going to ROCK! That is what I woke up saying to myself this morning.
Then the washing machine hose came out of the washing machine while it was full of soapy water. Oh, did I mention that the washer and dryer are upstairs? Yeah, I haven't done much laundry this vacation week and was just getting ready for a slew of laundry. The clean laundry was on the floor in front of the machines. Yup, soaked. Along with the wall to wall carpet, along with every towel I could put my hands on.
Matt happened to be here and was able to put the hose back on the washer. I bundled up a bunch of wet towels to take to our rental house to double up on my washing. I had to take Matt's truck. I left the radio on while running in the house which killed his battery (which was on it's way out anyway). He had to come over and jump the truck with my car.
I went to a lovely party with the girls and had made beef stew in my new crock pot. Delish, right? Of course it was, but the crock pot was so full that some sloshed over in my trunk. Mmmm, that will smell good for awhile, right?
All this caused me to be a bit crabby. (The girls would say, very crabby).
But, I came home, looked at my quote of the day and have decided to adopt this resolution.
I think this is actually one I can keep.
