you know that kelly clarkson song, even with my dark side? i have been feeling that creep in and out, in and out, in and out of my days lately.
tony has had atypical meetings last week and this week. they could have -and did at first- put him in a gnarly mood. then he decided to just learn something, anything, from the experience.
just like that.
he changed his outlook and wha-bam ---better mood, giggly husband, playful dad.
so this morning when i drove away from home thinking about how much i'd rather be there than anywhere else, i decided to take a page from tony's book.
i thought about how lovely it was that nadia made me a special snack last night.
and about the dance she put on.
and about the lecture on the importance of taking school seriously.
and about our special girl time when tony and aidan go to scouts.
and i thought about how thankful i was that i decided to play battleship with aidan while i cooked dinner.
i so badly wanted to tell him i was too busy. i wanted to explain that i was tired from working all day and still had a list of stuff to do around the house. and i might have too, but i couldn't say no to that face. he kicked my booty too. even that was worth it.
and i saw this in my rear view mirror and decided to learn something today.
i watched as car after car past with grumpypuss faces, their darksides showing.
maybe my learnin' for today is to let my brightside outshine the dark?
