Yesterday was not my finest school holidays moment. I was over it. Oh, so over it. Over the screeching. Over the play wrestling. Over juggling two completely different stages.
It was a really hot day. Outside anyway. Let's just say I don't cope with the heat very well. Particularly of the scorching, dry heat kind.
When the grass is dying and the vegies are shrivelling in the sun it can get a little depressing. Not to mention the growing dust bowl under the clothes line.
When the day stretches into one long challenge and there seems no end in sight, how do you snap yourself out of it?
After dinner Daniel took the kids outside while he prepared for the next days work. I did the dishes. I cranked the music up. Loud. I hung out the washing and a coolish breeze began to blow through.
Later I soaked in the bath and did some reading.
I felt better.
How do you snap yourself out of those type of days?
