...Today wasn't a stellar day for me. I found myself lacking in patience and overflowing with...I don't even know. Bitchiness, I guess. I was quick-tempered with PJ, short with Pete, and petulant during our marriage counseling session today. It's disappointing to feel like you are behaving in a way that is not becoming of who you are deep down- does that make sense? I want so badly to be able to rise above things that are, really, so small in the grand scheme of things but today? Epic fail.
...A fun part of the week? Volunteering at the book fair at PJ's school. I loved seeing PJ's reaction when he saw me in the library (*double take* *big, slow smile* "Hi, Mommy!!!!") and shopping for books with him and his classmates. I loved helping the older kids decide on titles and guiding the smaller kids through creating a wish list. I remember being so, so sad when PJ started school, but I had no idea just how much fun it would be to have a school-age child. Also, this doesn't have anything to do with books, but, not realizing that a little girl had started in his classroom just that day, I asked PJ who she was. He looked at her, tipped his head in thought, and said "Girl"?
Can't argue with that.
...I am hankering to do something girly, like get a pedicure or go back to pole dance classes. Yes, I realize those are two very different types of activities, but you get my drift. Either way, it's all kind of a pipe dream right now as I have little time and am trying to be frugal, but it's something on my mind.
