More Than The Leaves Are Changing....

This has been a fabulous week with my family. I have enjoyed spending time with my nieces and nephew and spoiling them rotten, I have loved spending time with my sister and shopping on Black Friday with her (I would NEVER shop on Black Friday with anyone else), I have enjoyed my free time and spending time with SB at an extended dinner filled with beer and tears.

I am looking forward to getting back home, sleeping in my own bed and getting back into our routine. We have spent the last week opening presents, eating sugary cereal, laughing and loving on the kids. All of that was fun but I must say, I am somewhat ready for a change. I am ready for the change of seasons, I am ready for the change of weather and I am ready for a change of attitude. On this trip, I have realized that I have become a bitter and complainy type person. This is going to change. I am going to regain my half full attitude if it is the last thing I do. I have become so accustomed to the negativity that I don't know how to respond anymore to a positive. I have realized that friendships change, marriages change, and relationships change...and people need to change with you or they sometimes get left behind. While this makes me sad, it is what it is.

I think we all go through phases like this, but you just started a new job location, and Christmas is coming. Besides, you always, always crack me up!

Change can be hard. But I am betting you will get back to the glass half full very soon!
