Gosh I have been so grouchy lately.
I have desperately wanted to make this summer fun for my kids, but it seems that every time I try to do something for them, it ends up turning into this giant mess that isn't any fun at all. And I feel bad, because I'm just so pregnant, and I feel like that makes me perma grouchy and uncomfortable and that sort of makes me impatient with the kids.
Yesterday I started off with great intentions; I was taking the kids to the pool for the first swim of the season. We only lasted about 2 hours before I was HOT and impatient and sick of the kids whining when I freaking took them to the pool, so I took them home. We got home, I fed them lunch and got them changed into dry clothes, and for some reason that I still don't get, I was just SO MAD. I was cutting up a watermelon, well, I really should say WHACKING IT TO PIECES, and finally I just burst into tears. Brandon happened to call me right then, and in tears I just told him I didn't know how I was going to get through the rest of my day. He surprised me by coming home a couple hours early, and just working from home, and he promptly sent me upstairs to the bedroom where I locked my door, settled under the cool sheets with my kitties, and took a lovely nap. That really helped.
But I just hate feeling this impatient and mean and grouchy. I don't want to be like this. I hope this is just a passing thing, and not something that my poor kids are going to have to endure all summer. :( I want to be nice!
