As a lot of you know that my husband hasn't been very helpful with our car having problems. Today he has to take me to work and to a few stores. I hope that this can be a good day. I mean it doesn't have to be a horrible day. As long as he doesn't have an attitude and complain the whole time. I was thinking that we could grab some coffee at a coffee shop or something. And maybe eat lunch while we are out. I also think that it could be fun for us all to find my daughter a pretty outfit for an event we have out of town tomorrow. I guess I will see how the day turns out.

That sounds annoying to put up with. I hope today (well, yesterday) was also a good day for you.

Yes that day went well. My husband only complained once before we left and then he let the day turn out to be a good one. I try to tell him that days go so much better when we don't complain about every little thing and we try to make the most of a bad situation. He's just a very negative person. But I'm glad that that day things went well because he could have made it a miserable day.

A day will only be good if you allow it to be good. So if you wake up and are still in your bed you count your blessings for 5-10 minutes and tell yourself this will be a great day and you will do everything to keep it that way! That is the spirit! It all has to do with your view on life and attitude. Your will to make the best out of your life. Just hoping is not good enough.

I agree with you that we have to do your best to make the most out of our life and our days. But a lot of the time no matter how hard we try to make things right others actions can affect us in a negative way. I'm glad though that today is going pretty good. I have worked hard to keep it that way and I hope that my husband will keep his positive attitude as well.

i like your optimism of the scenarios for the day. well, if it is so clear in your mind, i am confident that it will likely happen. the principle of mind over matter may be in works here. continue believing and hoping for the best.

Thanks the day is going pretty well. I'm happy about that.We did get coffee on the way to work. While I was working my husband took our daughter to the pet store to see some turtles,puppies, and some birds. Afterward we went out to eat Chinese food at his favorite restaurant. Then we went shopping for an outfit for our daughter. He even saw a vacuum cleaner for vehicles that he liked (he's a detailer for a car company) so I bought it for him. In a little bit here we will be going back out to get some groceries and then we will be in for the night. Thanks for your thoughts. I'm glad that the day is going well because the week has been crazy.

I hope things will work out better. As of right now things are so stressful. I just feel like I can't take anymore of this stress. I mean I'm not joking he doesn't do things to help me out. He knows that our daughter is attached at the hip to me and since she likes to be with me he uses that as an excuse. But that shouldn't be the case. While I take care of her he should be willing to do something around the house. When he makes comments about the house I think to myself well if he notices something needs taken care he should get off of his game and do something about it. I can't do everything all the time. Now with all that is going on with the car he doesn't even want to give me a ride to work. That is really sad. That is not how a family is suppose to do things.

Thanks so much. I appreciate it. Today has went pretty well. I'm glad that it turned out to be a good day. Because it could have turned into an awful one if my husband had an attitude about the whole thing.
