I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. The past couple nights I have woken up at 3 or 4 am and then couldn’t fall back asleep. Yesterday I solved the problem by giving in and heading to the gym to swim, but today I just lay in bed exhausted.
And then I was so grumpy with Abe and the girls all morning that I felt miserable and guilty. In the middle of my sad-sad inner dialogue, I heard the girls talking to each other about how much they like their mama. I couldn’t believe my ears. I felt so unlikeable! But that’s one of the many beautiful things about children–they still see the good, even when it’s not exactly shining through.
Then I called my mom and felt better. The rest of the day turned around and I didn’t feel grumpy at all. I hope I sleep through the night so I can stay on this happy train for the rest of the weekend (and not ruin everyone else’s weekend!).
Also, I didn’t take a picture of this, but I lost my mind and made gingerbread today. I have been craving it for a week and finally gave in. This might be the first time that gingerbread and watermelon teamed up to make a dessert…but my craving is satisfied!
