A Mickey Mouse Day
I’ve said it before; I’ll say it again: It’s all about attitude! With school out last week, an out-of-town trip over the weekend and the beginning of summer camp schedules starting this week, I’m feeling a bit over-extended. I wake up at night worrying about how I’ll manage to fit in everything that must be done, which then leaves me feeling tired and lethargic during the day so that I don’t get as much done – it’s a vicious cycle. This morning, as I prepared for the day, I decided I needed to break this cycle, so I put on Mickey Mouse jewelry. I know, that sounds pretty hokey, but sometimes hokey is the push I need to get myself moving. I’d like to think that wearing a Mickey Mouse watch, necklace, earrings and bracelet will imbue me with some of that famous Disney Magic. I have to admit, though, I’m not feeling it yet. Maybe I need to take more drastic measures. If you see a woman driving around today wearing Mickey Mouse ears, wave to her because it might be me.
