The Grumpies visiting
Sunday, March 03, 2013
Somehow so often in my life the grumpies visit just after a really excellent day, just like today!
I didn't sleep well, hmm maybe the age?? I mean I AM 33 now, no more a young spring chicken. Or maybe the excitement about them lovely clothes??? Or just my kids slight restlessness??? If I don't sleep well the start in the day is always challenging, so I was slightly grumpy.
And so was offspring thanks to fabulous day and lots of excitement yesterday as well as less sleep than normal. So offspring was grumpy/naughty/irritable as well. Then I couldn't have one of my usual breakfasts (just not being at home and having the stuff), and lunch was at church and way too early. I usually don't have a cooked lunch either.
So in the afternoon the munchies joined the grumpies. I did eat 5 gummy bears but apart from this it was fruit. Still I didn't like the munchies... Nor the grumpies!!!
For dinner we went to a food court. I tried to make a healthy choice and got sushi and pork dumplings. It was difficult though having no idea how many calories anything was... we hardly ever eat our apart from fish 'n chips now and then. I didn't eat much of the plain rice it was served with but stole some wedges from offspring.
It could have been so much worst, yet it feels like one wrong step could send me down the slippery slope. I'm safe now: teeth are brushed and flossed and I'm in bed, yet I'm a bit apprehensive of the trip back home and what tomorrow will bring. Yet I tried to prepare to the best of my abilities: cut up fruit and yogurt for me and the kids snack boxes of course.
But I think I send the grumpies packing and I hope they took the munchies along with them.
