This morning I started reading the book Rebecca. Some friends suggested it and I have heard so much about it. So I was reading it and in Chapter 2 there is a great quote. I remember thinking wow, that is cool, I should write it down, but I didn't. So as the day went on I wasn't feeling very well, I thought I needed fresh air. I went on a walk and that is not what I needed, I felt more sick afterwards. Then we FINALLY get home and Brooklynn informed me that she lost her 2 monkeys (littlest pet shop)and they are her favorites. We did 1/4 of the walk again and couldn't find them. Then Cameron wouldn't let me put him down, I was trying to get dinner done and Brooklynn decided to be naughty. She was screaming, throwing fits etc. Needless to say it was a bad night. Finally things got calm and I picked up my book and remembered the quote "Happiness is not a possession to be prized, it is a quality of thought, a state of mind." I can choose to be happy regardless of how bad my day is. So I am going to try to be more patient and choose to be happy. We'll see....

Thanks for letting me vent!
