Yesterday was a tough day. There were meltdowns before 7:30. A forgotten project that was due. Overly tired kids (and Mama!) who were out late the night before. The Daddy, however, was on it. He took our son to school, and I would do damage control and take the two late kiddos to school in a bit.
Half an hour later, I came to the horrified realization that my keys were locked in the car. Worse yet, there were no spare keys to be found, anywhere. The phrase, "I just can't adult today," came out of my mouth more than once. After much back and forth with my husband and oldest daughter, I realized that we have roadside assistance. Those folks took care of me. In under an hour, my car was open and the keys were in my hand.
I didn't bother to take the girls in. Or go to the gym to work out. I went inside and let my teen fee me sushi rice with avocado. I fiddled with a sewing project, listened to music, read a book, and played Jelly Blast on my phone. Then I went and picked up my son, and finally felt as if I could face my day. Some days are like that.
I'm glad today is a Saturday. I stayed up just a little late to watch a movie with my beloved after the kids were in bed, and then I got almost ten hours of sleep. It feels nice to get enough sleep. Maybe I'll nap today too...
