It’s A Matter of Perspective

I have the flu.

That sucks.

At least it’s not H1N1.

That’s a good thing.

Between winter break, my kids’ sickness and now my flu, I’ve been in the house for 4 weeks.

That sucks.

But I don’t have to be anywhere else.

That’s a good thing.

I did have big plans to start a new exercise program and now I can’t.

That sucks.

Well, at least I really don’t feel like eating bad food.

That’s a good thing.

My husband has been out of town all week while I’m sick.

That sucks.

But he is working.

That’s a good thing.

Because my car is leaking coolant and needs to go in the shop.

That sucks.

So I am driving my husband’s car, since he’s out of town.

That’s a good thing.

Except his car is messy and I don’t know how to turn on the windshield wipers.

That sucks.

At least it hasn’t rained.

That’s a good thing.

But it did snow and got really icy and cold here in Atlanta.

That sucks.

However it looks like it’s warming up and the ice is melting.

That’s a good thing.

But I have the flu and I’m inside all day anyway.

That sucks.ย Being sick sucks.

Hey, I’m alive.

That’s a good thing.

  • That’s cool. You made the best out of all the bad situations.

  • It’s all in whether you see the glass half full or half empty. I’m thinking that you’re choosing to be a half full kind of gal. That’s a good thing. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I guess you’re not going to Blissdom.

    That sucks. (I’d love to see you!)

    But you do get to do the Disney Social Media Moms thing.

    That’s a good thing.

    (Not as good as me seeing you at Blissdom, but there’s always next year, right?)

    • I REALLY want to go to Blissdom, but don’t think I can swing both so close together and the whole family is going to Disney, so that’s the priority. But I’m keeping hope alive until the first day of the conference. If I make it, I will let you know; I would love to see you too! If not, I look forward to your post about it. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This is hilarious! After a really bad week this made my day! You’re sick-that sucks! You made my day – that’s a good thing. As you said-it’s a matter of perspective.

    • You all are making me laugh! That’s a good thing. But I have a sore throat. That sucks. ๐Ÿ˜€
