I'm pretty sure if you asked my kids what they thought of their mom, they'd say, "She's crabby!" I do not know why some days are worse than others, but today was a crabby Mommy day. I tried to break out of it, but just didn't have a whole lot of luck. Sigh....
I don't know if I need more sleep, exercise, or simply time away from the family to replenish my patience tank, but something's gotta give. I think my husband could sense my need for a little "me" time, so he kindly suggested I call a friend and go out for a bit. I did just that (and made a stop at the local chocolate shop!) so by the night's end I did feel a bit more refreshed.
I know I've said it before, but creating this blog project has made me realize how many days I struggle. Acknowledging this is important for growth. I am starting to feel like this saying is relevant to my life right now: "Insanity: doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Yes, that is me!
Tomorrow is another day. Hopefully the chocolate and time with a good friend will carry over until then.
