I was so happy and doing so well yesterday. Then I picked up the kids, and BAM! My mood shot straight to you-know-where on a rocketsled.
It wasn't really the kids, although they were kinda testing my patience last night. It was that I tried to eat some leftover shrimp, even though I knew that was an incredibly dumb idea. I was being stubborn, and I have no idea why.
I PB'ed, although nothing really came up. And it was a weird PB. I didn't have the painful stuck part beforehand. I just suddenly had this sensation that it was going to be reappearing any second. I made it to the sink in time to hoork like a cat (which I talked about on someone's blog last night) while DD said, "Bless you, Mommy!" Does hoorking sound like sneezing? Apparently.
That left me hungry and with a headache (I PB'ed so hard, I was seeing stars). And two trying-my-patience kids. And a house that needed tidied up so the cleaning lady could clean today. And a gift that needed wrapped for a good friend who just had her second child. And friends who wanted to talk and a shoulder to cry on.
Playing single mom all week is getting really old. This is week nine, in case you were counting with me. So, it's been 42 nights (5 nights per week) of taking care of the kids on my own. I'm ready for this all to be over. Just a few more months, I can do anything for a few months, right?
Anyhow, this morning, I was so hoping for a better start to the day. I actually even did my hair and makeup. Then DD proceeded to throw FOUR temper tantrums before we even got to daycare. DS fell as soon as we got there and cut his lip pretty good. I was seriously sweating off my makeup and my hair was matted to me, after trying to wrangle two crying kids into daycare by myself.
Where's the Calgon when you need it? Or maybe a shot of vodka?
The good news is when I stepped on the scale this morning, it said 334.2. That means that tomorrow should be a nice loss of a couple of pounds for my official weekly weigh-in. YEAH for good news.
I'm determined to have a better night with the kids. I may make a frozen pizza and go for a walk. It's beautiful here, and I am going to take advantage of the nice weather to have a nice evening! If all else fails, I will find that vodka.
