My attitude was off today, and that's totally my fault. I let my patience run out, and my temper is short, and the kids seem to listen even less than usual, and I feel even worse of a mother than usual.
-I made it one week without a single drip of chocolate (and then celebrated with chocolate cream pie today...?)
-Got our car's title registered and now have official Idaho plates (brought both kids and decided never to do that again)
-There was snow on the ground this morning (melted by noon...but it was still pretty)
-Mailed out my charms for a charm square swap I'm participating in (many thanks to the lady at the post office)
-Took the kids to the indoor play place at the mall to work off their energy (didn't really work)
-Had a healthy lunch
-Did some exercises while the kids napped (very first baby step, so here's to that)
-Bundled up and kicked the football "to the moon" with Monkey Pants outside for a while (also good exercise)
It was a pretty productive Monday, I did things I wanted and needed to do. But still, I could've done much better. I yell too much, I am too lazy, I get frustrated too easily, and I spend too much time sitting and wishing for what I want and not being courageous enough to get up and start making it happen. I am too hard on myself, but I do think it's good to know I can do better...as long as I actually DO better, right?
Monday's can be tough...even for no good reason...
*One morning we found this plastic alligator stuck in the shades of our front window, so we took a picture of it. It makes me smile. The other picture is just our lovely patient "Hobbers" as the kids call him. He is the best dog, and I frequently wish I had his patience for my children.
