The Card of the Day today is the Five of Arrows, which has the keyword of "Frustration". As I was shuffling the deck, I was thinking: What do I need to be aware of today? I have to admit, I did think: Oh bugger! when I drew it out. Then I got to thinking about the last time I had pulled this card. Most of the frustrations that were shown through the day were other people's. It was their arrows trying to hit me and there I was, oblivious to them all.
So today, I was observing frustrations from my point of view and trying to see that from the view point of others. I saw both sides and I am pleased I did not get too frustrated with myself. My poor husband on the other hand, was at the brunt of the frustrations with our 2 year old for about 3 hours. The disadvantage of being two, is that you can't communicate very well what you need, what you want, what you'd like to do or general communications. Both the toddler and the parent are learning what the toddler wants, which isn't always what the toddler needs.
So, today is going to be a fun day for that. Oh, what it is to be 2 years old, a parent to a 2 year old and living with a 2 year old. I'm not moaning, it makes for interesting times!
And perhaps, tonight, the frustrations of the last weeks will end! Hubby is going for his first PS3 Platinum Trophy with Dark Souls. I'll be glad to have the TV back in the evenings for a few nights, before Batman: Arkham City takes over... 😉
Today, what are your frustrations? What frustrations are you observing? Are you the goat, jumping over the arrows? Or are you trying to stick your arrow into this goat? Only you know that.
