The bins are still there, but if I really want them moved, I can do it myself!
I know you’ve all been waiting on the edge of your seats to see how everything went with my no complaining challenge. I am happy to report that things went very well. I didn’t complain to Doug at all, although I think I might have let a few complaints sneak in while I was talking to Ingrid and Dixie. I also made great strides in my efforts to curb eye-rolling. I’m not sure if you realize thins, but eye rolling is a form of complaining! I had a near miss with that one. Doug asked me to change a diaper, and I thought really hard, my eyes started their journey upward, but then I got a hold of myself, and everything was okay.
You may be wondering how difficult this was for me. To be honest, it really wasn’t that hard. The fact that I was concentrating on not complaining really helped me. I thought for sure I would want to tell Doug how good I had been, and then hand him a list of everything that I didn’t complain about, but I don’t even think there was anything to complain about. I’m pretty sure it was a regular day, but it was definitely a lot smoother than normal. I didn’t even tell Doug about the experiment. I might bring it up in the future if he brings up complaining again, but his validation of the project didn’t really matter in the end. I had a really good day, and I think my kids had a good day, and that’s my barometer for success.
In case you’re wondering about the title of the post, I think I did really well until 8:00 when I turned on the radio to listen to the State of the Union!
