A new day

Yesterday was the day from hell. Yikes! Porgie is a great little girl. She is really well behaved 90% of the time. She is calm, she listens, and she is very affectionate. But something went awry yesterday. I was bitchy, the kids were bitchy, and combined, we were a disaster.

Honestly, I don't think she intended to spit in my face. I think she meant to spit out her food, which would have been annoying, but she put just a little too much force behind the action. All I know for sure, is that I almost completely lost control of myself. I was so angry, that I knew I couldn't be in the same room as her.

When the kids got up from their MUCH needed naps, things were better, but not great. I had a splitting headache and no tolerance for whining. Fortunately, John got home from work early, so that helped. And I went to Target after dinner and spent money. That always makes me feel better.

Today is a new day! We are going to a concert in the park to hear Ernie and Neal. We are having a picnic lunch. And gosh darn it, we are going to have fun!
