Yesterday was awful.
I was so sick (still am, though on good drugs and finally improving). I spent Wednesday unable to stand for more than a few minutes. Thursday I was able to get around alright, but had no energy left after taking care of bare essentials to even begin to patient with the boys. Whether from lack of attention, or an abundance of bad vibes in the atmosphere, or both, they were in no mood to be patient with me or each other either.
We spent the day super angry at each other and me wishing I could get some more sleep and mad that this Christmas season is turning out to be just as unhealthy as last year's.
Since I would not like to be presented with the Worst Mother of the Year Award, that's all the details to be had here.
Needless to say, but I'm going to anyway- I didn't write a thankful post yesterday.
I'm still on the perturbed side today, mostly from having to make up lost time from the last two days in housework and "behavior modification" in my grumpy boys.
But to combat that, here are some things I'm thankful for today:
appliances that help me make meals quickly and with little effort
mine and Bret's early Christmas present to ourselves
energy to stand up and accomplish something today
that no one is throwing up (knock on wood)
our furnace and fireplace
Al and Goose playing nicely together for at least five consecutive minutes
macaroni and cheese
What are you thankful for today?
