Three positive things, day four

So today was a little different - my wife took our kids on an adventure drive to some parks around Nashua while I worked on some things. There were still some highlights :)

The first item was watching a few rather surprising movies, specifically "Faults" and "The One I Love." Neither was what I was expecting, based upon the trailer, and kudos to Gavin Rothery for the recommendation on the latter.

Three positive things, day two

So, as part of my "Three Positive Things" self therapy, here's my list for today.

Firstly, I applied my patent-pending "Australia" technique to turn an grumpy & fussing li'l monster into a giggling toddler - I held him upside-down :-) While this technique may not work for very long - he's likely to outgrow it - it works rather well at the moment.

Secondly, I had a ukulele class with our eldest, a friend, and a really cool teacher. But no, my dog doesn't have any fleas, despite the teacher's insistence that he does. ;-)

Three positive things, day one

You might not know it, but I have a bit of a negative personality - I have a tendency of pointing out negative things about something rather than start with praising the positive. While it may not seem like a huge deal, when this is my automatic reaction, and because I still haven't worked my way out of the habit, my wife asked me to try something to change it.

Introducing Sonic and Shadow

On Tuesday morning this week, right after breakfast, I was doing some last minute preparations for a presentation at work. We were out of milk so my wife decided to take two of our kids to our dairy-supplier-of-choice to restock for the week. While she was gone she started sending me text messages, e.g. "I love you", "you are wonderful", etc; I thought she was trying to help pick up my mood and self confidence prior to the presentation, so kept working away. When it came time to do the presentation I locked myself in a room to avoid the anticipated interruptions from when they returned.
