I'm driving myself insane.
I find myself thinking up countless errands to run whenever HH is home and I can leave the kids with him.
Which means that on days like today (a Saturday), I hardly see any of them all day.
And I am typically out spending money. This cannot be good for our budget.
And I'm really tired and annoyed with everyone and everything by the end of the day.
And I missed my nap.
But it's kind of like an OCD issue, or something.
I've got to find a way to stop it before I go crazy.
One good thing came out of it today, though. I found some really cute shoes on clearance at Target. I love Target's shoe clearance. Some of my favorite shoes have come into my life that way. And picking up these shoes today was definitely a Joyful Moment.
And listening to HH tell me all about the super fabulous time they had swimming (while I was at the car shop getting a 30,000 mile tune up--sweet) was a Joyful Moment. Mainly because my kids really need fun outings these days and it made me so happy to hear how successful this one was.
But, it made me a little sad that I couldn't be there, too.
And then, tonight, was a really great Joyful Moment. Baby B suddenly was in a really fantastic mood. Like I haven't seen in months. For a bit, my sweet little carefree Baby B returned and was just so happy and so fun to watch as he enticed his daddy to stop cleaning the kitchen and come play with him. I was on the couch with a horrible headache, but it just made me so so so very happy to watch him be so happy.
Unfortunately, it came to an abrupt end. But, it lasted longer than I expected.
And it was great while it lasted.
Wishing you all Joyful Moments that are great while they last!
