Have You Ever Had a Day Like This?


Have you ever had a day where you were prone to mean looks and gloomy attitudes and flat-down exhaustion?

You just wanted to crawl in a cave...
(Or a craft cabinet. Same diff.)

Where there's only room for you...

Say farewell to your peeps...
(just for an hour or five!)

And shut.

The.


Door?

Well, that day was yesterday for me. And, incidentally, it was the young man pictured directly above that plum did me in.

Cory had the nerve to work late Mon. through Thurs.

Siley was at his Wiliest.

Calvin was bossing.

Ruby was crying.

Silas was attempting to stick sharp metal objects into electrical outlets and throwing food on the floor. And calling all of us "Bolly Bobo" whenever we looked at him wrong. (We have reason to believe that this may mean something quite alarming in Korean, given his tone and general demeanor whilst saying it.)

I knew I was a wee bit frazzled.

Then my sister-in-law called to say that she was taking my kids - ALL of them - for the day today.

And I burst into tears.

And then I really knew I was frazzled. Like, fo rills.

That is the way I want to love. Selflessly and right when I notice the need.

My sanity feels mostly restored tonight. All because of 6 lazy hours.

TGIF, Friends.
