Last month, my contribution to “Saying Yes” was a big one – we agreed for Ashar to have her own cell phone.
This month’s is a little less earth-shattering.
I said yes to watching The Avengers with Chris and Sarah.
They’d seen it already – and had wanted me to watch it with them, but I just hadn’t worked up much enthusiasm for it. I’m not particularly into comics, or superheroes, but I was familiar enough with the storyline to follow along, and you know what?
Turns out it was pretty fun – and I loved, loved, loved the Hulk, who I’m told I sometimes resemble, usually at the grocery store.
(You know the type: “I need 8 rolls of paper towels! These come in packs of 6 or 12! Arrrrrgh!” To which Chris will say to Ashar, “Uh-oh, Mommy’s hulking out again.”)
Though I admit, I’d prefer to look like the Black Widow, especially at tae kwon do… I probably look much more like the Hulk fumbling around than I do the woman with mad kicking skills, but hey, at least I try!
How have you said yes this week?

I like your posts on ‘saying YES’. I try to say yes too. I don’t know why sometimes “NO” is my first response. I am trying to rectify that. 🙂
I’m still a work in progress for sure! I think my biggest thing is to try to turn from a default of “no unless I can think of a good reason to say yes” to “yes unless I can think of a good reason to say now!” One day at a time… it’s getting better! I can’t believe how much FUN it is, too!!
Clearly now we need to watch the two Iron man movies, the Captain America movie and the Thor movie!
I would probably say yes to those too. 🙂
