Monday's prompt

How do you cope with a change in plans? Not very well actually. I like for there to be plans. I like for those plans to be followed. I like to have backup plans in case the first plan falls through. It does depend on just what the thing is. I'll roll with a restaurant being closed unexpectedly or toddler tales being cancelled for snow. I'm disappointed but I can work with it easily enough. But something big like a flight getting cancelled or other travel/vacation plans getting changed throw me pretty hard at first. I get upset (angry or sad) for a bit, but then I move on to solving the problem. I'll probably complain about it for awhile afterwards too. I have my spontaneous moments, but they are few.

LOL, you sound like me with that last line. Guess it's true of most mommies. Thanks for playing!

I'm with you, Stacey--I like to have a plan A, a plan B, and maybe even C in my pocket. And I have been known to freak out a little when A, B, and C fail to happen. Still, I find it's best to start with a plan, even if it doesn't work out and you have to do a whole other thing in the end. That's life, I suppose.
I'm enjoying reading your blog!
