My kids are on winter break right now. I don't know if it's being out of school, or that they just got a bunch of presents for Christmas, but my family seems extra ungrateful lately towards me, and it's really getting to me. I limit their screen time, so that they don't turn into piles of mush when they return to school next week, but that seems to just add fuel to the fire.
Throughout this whole 2 weeks that they've had off, I don't think that I've managed to drink an entire cup of coffee, as they find ways to spill it. Being unemployed, it's an extra slap in the face for them to waste food, especially when coffee is the one luxury in food that I buy for myself.
I was running some errands this morning and was thirsty. I decided to be nice and swing by McDonald's for the $1 large drinks. I got myself a large unsweetened iced tea to replace the coffee that I (once again!) did not get to finish this morning. The minute I walked in the door, I told everyone that all I bought were sodas, no food. All I heard from my husband and kids were gripes about not getting fast food. Fast food is not good for our bank account or our bodies (especially the hubby and I). This happens every time I try to be nice and think of my family, it's never good enough!
While I was doing dishes (which everyone else seems happily blind to), the kids were arguing over a new toy and knocked over all of the drinks.
I seriously want to just go back to bed and start this day over. Maybe I'll wake up and not be surrounded by such selfish and ungrateful people. On days like this, it is so hard to ignore the negativity and feel motivated enough to workout.
