Today's Mantra

I have been in a salty mood at work for like 4 months. Ok, maybe not for that long, but I've had more than a few cranky days. I'm not very good at masking my frustration for things like databases that seem to take forever to calculate and merger changes that I don't understand or agree with.

But today is my Friday since I am taking tomorrow off - and to help fend off any feelings of frustration, the quote on this poster is my mantra for the day. Another favorite of mine from this fabulous Etsy Seller. I could buy a poster for every room of my condo from this girl's site. But I won't because I am kind of putting myself on a strict budget... I really need to make buying a house a reality and not a dream. So time to tighten the belt. My goal is to be in a house by the time I turn 30 on February 6th, 2011. Mom, I will try to not make you guys move me on a ridiculously freezing day in February... But just think - it should be the last time. My dear parents have moved me into more apartments than any other kid in our family. It's possible they've manned more moves for me than for all 4 of my siblings combined! What would I do without them?

Anyways, back to the mantra - here's hoping it will result in a day free of any snarkiness... Perhaps I need to bend the rules of my budget and purchase a copy of this to hang in my cube...

LOL. That poster is HILARIOUS! Hahahaha.

Hope that you do have a good day and you truly are happier than a bird with a french fry, hahaha!

I think that sounds like a great "house" goal. My parents have moved me LOTS over the last couple of years too. Last summer when we were packing up to move to Kamloops Eric said to me, "Amber, I'm only moving three more times with you after this" Haha, since we had moved EVERY spring and every fall for the two years before that!

That's a great mantra!! Too cute.

I'm right there with you on the moving thing. I can't even count how many times my parents have moved me into various apartments. Here's to realizing your house goals.

Hope you have a relaxing long weekend. You deserve it!
