I have about decided I have a serious mood swing problem. (I am 51..Could it be?) One day I am happy with the world and the next I am ready to explode. Often within the same day.
OK..I take care of 3 children, a 2 month old, a 1 year old and a 2 year old. they are my grandchildren and I ADORE them. But they are more than two hands full. I need at least 4. Soo...some days are stressful. Today was one of them. We have tried to hire help for in the morning and it is hard, for what my kids can afford to pay. We found some great college students but schedules and other jobs make it challenging to say the least.
Today, as once again, I was formulating a way to make myself tell my kids I can not do this.....my daughter IMed me from work. (slow day). I was told her how I was feeling. She said she would figure out a way to make this work. When I checked up later..she said "READ YOUR MAIL> READ IT NOW". So I checked and found that daughter in law had written us both to tell us that a friend of the family was looking for part time work that was flexible enough for her to go on school outings with her own children. This lady is already my back up and we totally trust her.
This is what I call a God Siting. He never lets me down.
And..while I am searching the house, frantically, trying to find something sweet and junky to eat, all this transpires. I eventually found a little peanutbutter fudge, ate just a little anded handed it to my son whom I knew would remove my temptation by inhaling it.
Thank God, I keep the junk out of the house. I ate within my calories after all. I thought it was a lost cause.
I did squeeze in a 30 minute work out and i think I can manage another one tonight. WOO HOO!!!!
