The Week From Heck

Disregarding the good moments we had on Daddy's birthday, this has been an all around cruddy week. One of our vehicles had to get worked on, some of our family members have been ill and one is in the hospital, the kids have been cranky, the weather has been yucky, a bill has come due that I had forgotten about, I thought Zeke's school field trip was canceled but it was a misunderstanding & he missed out...just an all around bad week. I had been dwelling on the "woe is me" aspect of the week but today I just decided to stop it & think positively. For inspiration, I went to the internet and found:

"A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.” - Winston Churchill

"A man is but the product of his thoughts - what he thinks, he becomes." - Gandhi

"A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort." - Herm Albright (Don't know who this was, but I like his style! haha)

So I decided I am going to look at the positive things that have or could come out of the bad week. The van needed worked on but it wasn't anything major, it's in good working condition and it is still under warranty. Most of our family members that have been sick are feeling better AND as I was typing this, I got a call telling me that the relative in the hospital is going home - still sick but is able to go home! The kids have been cranky but I've just had to come up with some more creative things for them to do. The weather has been very yucky but it hasn't been overly cold and it could be a lot worse! Bills have come due but they're going to have to be paid at some point in time or another and it's good to know that we have the money to pay them. (Hmm, that one was a Zeke did miss his field trip but it was a very rainy day out (so it wouldn't have been much fun) and we could try & go the place next week sometime. It's finally the weekend and hubby is getting ready to start a week or so of vacation. And above all, we're still living & breathing so it wasn't as bad a week as it could have been! :)
