My Glass is Half Full Today

Well, I whined all day yesterday about it being Sunday and me having to go back to work on Monday. When I finally dragged my ass out of bed this morning I tried to change my outlook. I was talking to myself in the shower. Always a good time. I was like "Carmen, be glad you have a job - the economy stinks and you get paid this week and that's a great thing. Think how depressed you'd be if you lost this job". It worked. I felt a little better driving into work today. It's really all about your perception of things. Is the glass half full or half empty? I tend to complain and whine and pout a lot, but really, things could be so much worse.

Yesterday I went shopping with my mom and she bought me two new pants for work. Loves her! My mom is the best. I was going through my closet last week and I realized that although I do have a lot of clothes, my work clothes are all like brown, black and grey. Pretty dull huh? I needed something different to spice up my attire. So, I found a pair of really pretty cream pants that fit nicely at New York and Company - they were on sale too! I also got a pair of beige and gold striped pants from the same place. I'm wearing them today. I can never turn down something with a splash of gold running through. I'm like those New York Jew chicks that bring gold lame' bibs to dinner with them when they eat out. No joke. I used to wait on them all the time when I was waiting tables in Florida. These chicks were over the top with their sparkly wardrobes and their gold bibs. I liked it though! I'm gonna be just like that when I'm older. They would line up at 4:30 in front of the door because we did a 2 for 1 early bird special every night for dinner from 5 p.m. - 6 p.m. It was a good deal and they took full advantage of it. Nothing wrong with that.

Speaking of good deals. Don and I met my parents at the new Aliante Station Casino last night for dinner at the buffet. My parents had two for one coupons and we pretty much gorged outselves silly. I didn't eat all day because I wanted to have a BIG appetite for the buffet. It was great. The food was delicious and they had a little bit of everything. You name it. Chinese, American, BBQ, Tex Mex, Salads, and of course a huge dessert buffett too. It was well worth the 30 minute drive.

Happy Monday Peeps.

I love this idea. I dread Mondays too, but then I remember that having a job is a plus right now.
