Having the right perspective has helped me immensely today.....
You know how everything from Costco comes in multiples? Like a box of Cheez-it has two sleeves. Well I bought a couple boxes of them yesterday with my handy-dandy coupon of course! I came downstairs this afternoon to find one sleeve empty already. I started to get frustrated but then took a step back and did a little thinking. Okay a box of Cheez-its from Costco costs about $6 and I had a $2 off coupon. So I'm only out $2 for half a box and it made a nice after school snack. That's actually not too bad for 7 kids!
Oh and as long as I'm in a giving mood .... we won't worry about the brand new giant Christmas lights that we brought home yesterday that are already broken. That's right one of them had a little run-in with a soccer ball.
It's just an accident ---- sheesh! You need to work on your patience!!
