We've been plagued for almost two weeks now with pink eye and a virus. But today, with the help of my Mother in law, Beth, I got everyone (yes! Everyone is well enough finally!) out to school by 7:30 so I could make a 8am meeting at work. Stella and I go skirting into the conference room at 5 till 8 only to find out the meeting was postponed until next week. Now, I wouldn't say I'm the most evenly tempered person alive. I mean, I got up at 6am, got 4 kids out the door by 7, didn't even have any coffee yet.... I could spin this some kind of way. But, I told myself during this Lenten season I was going to Hunt the good stuff (HTGS).
Queue: EVERY person in the army laughing at me. HTGS is a principle of the army's Master Resiliency training model to "enhance overall performance, improve unit level readiness, and sustain a balanced, healthy, campaign capable, expeditionary army." But I've always thought there was really something to some of these principles. I mean, really, HTGS is just forced optimism. So for the last month I've been taking all the potentially crappy situations and spinning them into something positive.
So, today, I was able to get 4 kids out the door at 7 (#winning!) which means I have 4 kids healthy enough for school.
My meeting was postponed until next week, which means I have a week to better prepare.
I'm standing in the hospital at 8am for no reason now (when I could be in bed), which means I get to go get coffee and sit in the Mothers Room to peacefully feed Stella.
How's your Wednesday? Happy hunting ❤️
And may we all be as relaxed as Stella in her sink bath last night.
