One of THOSE Days

Today has been one of those days.

One of those days when everyone is on edge.

One of those days when all the buttons are getting pushed.

One of those days when tantrums (both adult and toddler) abound.

Which, of course, means it’s one of those days when we have obligations out in the real world to deal with. Which, of course, means that the stress is higher than normal. Which, of course, is a horrible catch-22 because the more stressed we get the more the day stresses us out which means we get more stressed which means my husband is out right now getting tacos so we can eat our stress.

I’m hoping that a nap for the toddler will help everyone mellow out. I’m hoping that some time to decompress will chill N.C. and I to the point where we don’t feel like we’re overreacting at every.little.thing. I’m hoping that the kid wakes up in better spirits, with less hitting and tantruming.

Basically, I’m hoping that the next two hours give us all a reset on the day, a chance to change one of THOSE days into something else.

I’m sending mellow, calming vibes your way. I hate when a Saturday goes like that. Weekend time is so precious. I like the chill out and eat tacos plan 🙂

Aw that sucks. I know exactly what you mean. Sometimes it’s like adjusting to a whole other atmosphere when you start the weekend. I hate when weekend days are like that…though in my experience it’s usually just one day, and then the other day is awesome.
I hope the tacos (and all the rest) do the trick.
On another notes, you are kicking ASS at nablopomo. 🙂

Those are tough days–I hope the nap worked!
