I hit what I call the Mommy Wall today. I put Aaron down for his nap, and I was putting dirty laundry down to the basement to be washed, trying to get dressed, and making sure everything was ready so we could go get furniture when DH got home. As I’m walking through the living room, I hear whining about lunch. I was on my way to the bathroom to brush my hair. I’m standing there looking in the mirror thinking “I don’t want to make lunch. I just want to do the things I need to do for ME right now.” I’m done, and I need a break. I need to find a way to carve out some me time this week or something’s going to give.
And for the furniture, the couch was gone when we went to buy it. So, now we need plan B because let’s face it, no other couch will be that couch. Oh, and they discontinued it in the chocolate micro suede. The other micro suede colors are ugly or too light to have with kids, and the other fabrics are pretty awful. Yippee.
We were in the car on the way home today, and Zach was being a pill when I told him enough was enough he’d been pushing my buttons all weekend and I was done. He then asked me when I thought my buttons might pop back up again. Sad thing was he wasn’t trying to be sarcastic. He just thinks in such absolutes and he’s THAT literal. In fact I’m not sure he’d know what sarcasm was even if it bit him on the ass. I had to explain to him that his making good choices was the only thing that was going to fix the situation.
I did have some good news this weekend though. My current jeans are getting looser, so it’s time to break out the next smaller size. I’m excited about that. I haven’t really done anything differently either. The only difference is that living here on post I can walk to almost anything I need when the weather’s nice. So smaller pants it is.
That’s where I’m at. How was your weekend?
