Today was the first day this week where things felt somewhat manageable. All day, I’ve been trying to figure out why that might be. Overall, the boys were easier – more compliant, less willful and disobedient. Maybe they’re finally getting used to having Nana around. Maybe I got a little more sleep last night? Maybe yesterday’s workout endorphins had a delayed effect?
It really doesn’t matter much. I’m just grateful to be getting to the end of the day with capacity for some conversation with my mom, and even a project we’re working on.
Fingers crossed we have another day like this tomorrow – our last day together before the men arrive home and my folks depart.
No thoughts of alcohol today but I will admit that it being Friday night, I am contemplating how to fit in a little weed. We’ll see how that goes.
