This is a Test

(image:  foxnews.com)

This is a test of Mommygirl's patience and willingness to practice what she preaches.

I love cold weather, and I think snow is lots of fun (unless I'm in a vehicle driving in it...in which case, ulcer alert!).  I try to live in the moment and not stress too much about what's next, and I try to realize that when my plans aren't God's plans, I need to reevaluate.

But seriously?  I had big work plans this week.  Plans that meant that what we've been working on night and day all flipping year was finally coming to fruition, with a grand opening this Friday.  Tomorrow.  Plans that included a drive to Houston today and tomorrow.  Plans that involved being able to access a server yesterday that kept shutting down because of the rolling power outages.

There...it's out of my system for now.

I can be patient.  I can go with the flow.  And once I know if tomorrow is cancelled, I can let go of this stress and enjoy this time with my children.  One of whom may be sick...sigh.  Again, I can be patient.  I can go with the flow.

Or, in the words of Joe Scruggs, "I am a willow.  I can bend."

So bent, but not bent out of shape. It is what it is at this point...

On the upside, we can sleep in tomorrow! :)
