Positive Polly

I have started this new week with a great attitude. Yesterday in church, the sermon was about making your life more positive and how that will affect everything around you. I felt like the pastor was speaking directly to me. I think that a dark cloud sometimes follows me around, especially lately. I hate it when I feel that way and have noticed on many occasions that I am the most negative person when I am feeling down. I HATE that!! Not only is it not fun for me, but I know others around me don't like it - especially my poor husband who I take most of it out on. SORRY HONEY!! It is easy to feel negative and sad as we go through this adoption process. There are so many days when we all just want to bitch and moan about everything around us - I am the queen of this. I decided yesterday that I am going to put forth a serious effort to work on my negativity, my complaining, and my overall attitude and make my life happy again. After all, I am working at something that is going to make my life fulfilled - I should be rejoicing. No one ever said that this was going to be easy, so I knew that going into this. I am taking the approach of "battling" the negativity when it comes over me. I think some positive thinking can go a long way to get me past a bad day. I am trying to focus on Lucy and her needs, the good in my life, and how I can make myself a better person before she gets here. I really think I can do this!

Aside from becoming Positive Polly versus Negative Nancy, I did not get near all of my projects done this weekend. I did get to IKEA for the organzing stuff - didn't get near enough and made a second trip yesterday. I had never been to IKEA. I must say, it was a bit overwhelming and at one point I really felt like I was trapped in there with no way out!! Once I learned my way around, I found some awesome bargains and am very pleased with my purchases. I got some organizing done, but this is going to be a LONG process. We have a lot to do. It is going to look so great though when it is done.

I did not get to the fabric store, so my quilt swaps are no where near being done. OOPS!! I will get that done this week though. One of our neighbors had a cookout last night and it was so much fun. I live in such an awesome neighborhood - we have made some amazing friends!! Also, Saturday night I ate at a Vietnamese restaurant. It was AWESOME! I loved the food so much. It was only my second time to have Vietnamese, but it really was so delicious. There were several little girls playing in there and they made me really miss my Lucy. They were precious.

I really hope to hear of some referrals this week - I would love to hear of mine, but I just don't think that this is the week and I am okay with that. I hope that this week flies by though so that maybe next week will be my week!!!!

This is a great attitude Kelly! I'll join you on that goal. I've been so negative and there has been so much drama and the combo of the two creates a viscious cycle. Let's end that cycle, darnit!

I definitely feel ya on the IKEA thing - we were there too. Plus we went with the intent to eat lunch and that included an hour wait in line for meatballs! Sheesh! We didn't get all our shopping done yet but tonight we are diving into organization anyway. Whee!!

I agree this isn't our week but maybe next week!

Ooh, I hope the Positive Polly thing is contagious... I agree, it's no fun going around with a big ol' Eeyore cloud over your head. And I hope your patient wait for a referral doesn't last too much longer!
