It wasn’t an entirely wonderful day, but I think there were more good moments today than there were bad. The gap may be small, but still, it was a decent day.
I made it to the park to do my workout with the mom I met there. My youngest got out and ran around for a bit. It was a beautiful day with a gentle breeze that kept everything cool.
I didn’t sleep well last night, so I was pretty beat when my daughter went down for her nap. I grabbed a chair and read my book outside in the fresh air. I haven’t made time to do that in years. It felt great. Of course, now I wish I had spent the time cleaning the house, but it was great to get a little relaxation in anyway.
Today, the kids were all in fairly decent moods. There was not a lot of negativity, which helped me tremendously. My patience and frustration build quickly when I don’t sleep well, so the fact that they were all in pretty good moods made it easier for me to get through the day trying to stay focused on positive things.
