Today is the last day of spring break. I should point out it is the last weekday of the break. THinking of today in this manner helps me settle into the weekend knowing and accepting what Monday brings.
I play this little games like this with myself to help me adjust to the inevitable.
I have a few more of these little games.
Would you like to hear them?
- Tell people you're about seven or ten years older than you are. They'll think, "Wow, you look amazing!"
- Start saying your child is their up and coming age about four months before their birthday. Pre-announcing the number allows you time to adjust. Now, you won't be sad on the actual birthday.
- When I am shopping for clothes, I always take in my size and one size larger. And, I ALWAYS try on the larger size first. Feeling how big this size helps take the sting out of the size I actually need. I started the size game because once upon a time I arrogantly said, "If I ever need to by a double-digit size I am not shopping!" This haughty comment was long before marriage, four pregnancies, the long-standing tradition of Friday night pizza and Saturday morning doughnuts.
