The sky has been putting on quite a show the last few nights.
Now this version….
…reflects the mood of my house the past few days.
Big Girl is testy and mouthy, Little Girl is moody and whiney, Mister is grumpy and bratty, Zan is Zan….generally even- tempered but subtly aggravating as always which is maddening, and then there’s me, whose head is ready to spin around like the Exorcist at the slightest irritation. I feel the Fight or Flight chemicals coursing through my veins….
I’m not sure why.
Maybe it’s the result of working around and through sick kids over the past month…maybe it’s the fact that we have had too many obligations on the weekends…maybe it’s the lack of a family vacation in too many months (we thrive on vacations)…maybe it’s the impending holiday chaos that seems to have come too soon this year…..
Maybe we’re just all tired and cranky. Who knows?
But what I DO know is that if we’re all crabby and moody NOW, what’s it going to be like once January and February comes around? *shivers*in*fear*
