So it took exactly one week to go from ecstatic (but exhausted) to miserable (and exhausted). Mind you, I had another rough week, my lungs are hurting, I am pms-ing, it rained all weekend, and the boys acted like cats & dogs all day.
I vowed when I got back from my 10 days away, that I would appreciate, appreciate, appreciate, appreciate, my boys, my time with them, their idiosyncracies, their time-consuming quirks. Today was a challenge. I could have appreciated them more.
But.... my lungs are hurting, I am very sleep-deprived, I am pms-ing, it rained all day today, and tomorrow I have a 16-hour day.
