It was a challenging day today. The boys were being difficult this morning; I was running late; I got into a car accident (nobody was hurt but my car's front bumper is a little mangled); I had a court date; and I found out that I am late with updating the 2014 budget.
Things did not get better after I left work. I was almost late picking up the boys because I was feverishly trying to update the 2014 budget; I spent longer than I should have making dinner and checking homework; I didn't get to the store to get the boys something for lunch and will have to get up early tomorrow to get something for them; and the boys were lippy and I ended up sending them to bed without any dessert. Seriously, they are not going to starve because they didn't get dessert. They actually got a very healthy, home made chicken dinner that was nutritous and delicious.
As you can see from my list, not ALL of my day was bad. I did manage to pick up my sons before time ran out and I did manage to feed my sons a healthy dinner. The boys are in bed before the standard 8:30 pm and I'm able to write an entry before plunging into completing my portion of the 2014 plan. Just the same, I am tired and ready for today to be over. I'm trying to figure out what the universe is trying to tell me; maybe it's that I should have stayed in bed today or maybe that I need to keep looking for the silver lining in the crap that's sometimes handed to me. Maybe it's that I should be thankful for what I have because others don't have nearly as much. Whatever the case, I hope that I've learned the lesson because I really can't have another day like today.
