I just yell at everyone around me like I did this morning, and then I realize that I need a St. Johns Wort. I take one, apologize to everyone, feel bad because the kids had a bad morning before going off to school for the day, and vow to never let it happen again. We did manage to pray together (my husband did the praying) before they left, and we did get hugs, kisses, and "I love you's" out there, so that was good. I think you have a good idea about curling up with a good book.
I grump about and think to myself, "Martha, what you really need is a nice long nap!" I used to leave my kids home together and take off in my car for a while until I felt better again. Now I don't have that option. I take a nap after Troy goes down for his nap.
Oh how I can relate to the whole yell and scream thing and then feeling guilty and horrible and apologizing... UGH! I just couldn't get into a book last night... so I ended up popping in Dick Van Dyke and vegged out in front of that for a good hour or so. (I watched at least 4 of them!) I'm still feeling kind of yuck today too... I hope and pray I don't strt grumping! I took a 2 hour nap right after taking the kids to work - but my headache is just as bad if not worse than before the nap.... and I'm supposed to go Christmas shopping tonight!
Headaches don't help the "grumps" much, do they?
If I can...I get away by myself. Sometimes I just get tired of people. If Jamie is home I take off by myself...if he isn't and I am stuck here, I suck it up until the kids go to bed.If I am smart, I pray.
Hey, Happy Snappy, where are your Christmas pictures?
