I seemed to suck up everyone else's emotions around me as well. I talked to someone who was having a hard day at work, and suddenly, my day was just that much harder. I spoke with someone who was a bit angry, and then, for some reason I was angry too. I consciously try to avoid doing that, but today was different. It was as if I could see myself drawn to the dark side of life and wallowed there.
Would today been different had the sun been shining? I don't know. I can only hope that tomorrow I will be able to force a better attitude and not let those around me influence how I feel.
Enough waxing poetic, or at least my attempt to. On Saturday, we went to the African Children's choir at Kingsbury Hall. Let me just say, it was fantastic and the kids really enjoyed themselves. We had great seats and I just absolutely loved going to a cultural event and exposing my kids to how they should dress and act. With Daniel able to get tickets to these events for free on occasion, we definitely will be taking advantage of it. We had talked about how we both work for universities where cultural events are very reasonably priced and we need to do it more often. It would be a shame not to take advantage of it.
