I am tired. I haven’t slept properly in days due to hubby being away, and we are all tired in our house – kids and me.
I was tempted beyond belief to grouch around in bed this morning, to pretend to sleep, to be able to tell everyone all morning how terribly the week was starting. I was tempted. I would have felt justified. I would receive a lot of sympathy.
However, when I am tired I really do need to be at my best. My mood is solely my responsibility and I needed to get up and do exercise, and start my day before the kids were up.
I needed to be at my best so that my kids can be at their best for a busy week ahead.
This is the only way for things to work without shouting, yelling or resentment.
Good luck xx
