There are a few different ways to use today’s word, but this time we are talking about accepting an unpleasant fact or situation. In this case, it means that you get used to it or recognize that it cannot be changed.

Nothing to do with traveling, but last week was “Book Week” for Australia. It means that around Australia, all the elementary schools celebrate books. This is a great idea of course, but the one thing that I dislike is that they have a parade and the kids have to wear a costume of their favorite book character.

Every year, I say, “Let’s get your costume organized soon!” and every year, the kids say OK… and every year, I am stuck making costumes on the Sunday night before the parade on Monday because they couldn’t decide what character to be! I guess I just have to accept that this is going to happen every year until high school… ha ha!
