Attitude Adjustment Needed
Some day’s are better than others. No matter how positive a person stays we all have bad days. The type of day that makes you want to go back to bed. If it’s a really bad day other people will tell you to go back to bed. I can say this has been one of those days. I think it’s a day that I needed an attitude adjustment
Challenges Are Good!
I started the A to Z +1 August blogging challenge to see if I could do it. I even told myself, “This will be easy! I can easily find things to write about!” I normally try to have a post written a day in advance but life (like it often does) got in the way. Today is about the letter “A.”
It’s the month of August and if you didn’t know my name is Aaron (double “A’s”) When I got up this morning I thought to myself, I can write about Aaron in the month of August. It will be an easy thing to write about. I like myself. I like August.
Wrong Day – Wrong Letter’s
Dogs Gone Wild!
Life is never so simple though. In fact, if today had been the letter “D” I would have written about our three dogs, all dachshunds
. I am not sure exactly what was wrong but all three of them had delicate tummies. The trouble with their stomachs caused me to have to wash their bedding. I often write in the early morning before my son gets up. Taking care of the dogs this morning took up that extra time and made me feel like a dumb, dork, dad. The dogs helped start my day in need of an attitude adjustment.
If I didn’t already need an attitude adjustment I would very shortly. After, my son got up we would need to make a trip into town. I knew that he would be up anytime and thought I would get things ready to leave. I packed the diaper bag and would have taken it to the car, if I could have found my keys. I could have written easily about the letter “K” for keys. The day is almost over and I still have not found my keys. I am almost positive that as klutzy as I am I dropped them and kicked them somewhere, possible even in the kitchen. I could be wrong though and some kleptomaniac kept my keys. (I will let you know as soon as I find them)
When my son finally was awake,I thought the day might start looking better. Toddlers seem to have a way of knowing you are having a bad day. Sometimes they can make a bad day better and other times they can just be tiring, troublesome toddlers. I know my son loves me and I think he was trying to help me see I still needed an attitude adjustment.
I thought that if my son had known today is about the letter “A” it would help the situation. He didn’t seem to care and insisted on proving that it was a letter “T” day, for toddler. At one point today, I asked my toddler to pick up some toys (nicely I might add. ) My son (A.K.A. toddler) told me, “No, I big now. You pick them up!” It was in that moment I discovered my toddler was correct, I needed an attitude adjustment!
I felt better now and knew I could handle the rest of the day. I was still thinking about the letter “A.” It never even occurred to me that I should write about the letter “I.” for ice. I was thirsty and thought I would ponder the letter “A” some more. I was drinking out of an insulated cup and needed more ice. I went to the freezer and pulled out the bag of ice. Normally, it would have been illogical for me to try to ignore the bag of ice breaking and spilling everywhere. I would have been indignant about it. Instead, since I was working on my attitude adjustment, I laughed! I wish today had been the letter “I” day, for ice!
Attitude adjustment help
Thinking about the letter “A”
Now that my day is finally coming to an end I can write about the letter “A.” I am just not sure what to say. Since I have had an attitude adjustment I think it would be easier to write about that letter. Oh well, tomorrow is the letter “B.”
