Today was challenging. I guess the morning was okay - the kids got up earlier than usual, and I hung out with them until mid-morning. We went to ToddleTown - a pay-to-play place that the kids love - for the rest of the morning, but then the boys didn't take the long nap I anticipated afterward. *sigh* And the goldenrod blooming everywhere gave me one heck of a headache.
No nap = fussy/cranky/whiny kids. Bleah. I had my usual evil thoughts that I never act on and dragged us all to the grocery store to get the milk everyone was whining for. But I have to admit that it was more challenging than usual for me to keep my cool and not scream at my kids through all this. I have been a grump and a half. I really wanted to rant and rave. Often. Every little thing set me off. And I had planned to exercise during the nap (something inside, because... did I mention it was wet outside?), but no map also = no exercise.
The boys are going to bed early tonight. Really early. I even feel too grumpy/tired to eat dinner. Maybe I will just go to bed when they do. I have managed not to eat to make myself feel better - actually a major accomplishment. Tomorrow will be a better day.
