I was in a rather foul mood yesterday morning. I wasn't very patient with the kids. Then I got mad at myself for not having an abundance of patience with them considering what has been happening back East and how incredibly blessed I am in light of the heartbreak those parents are dealing with. Then I got mad at myself because only a few minutes later I felt exasperated with the kids again even after making myself think about how fortunate I was to have my little ones still with me.
Anyway, Chris offered to take the kids to the desert and let me have a few hours to myself, but I also oddly didn't want to be away from my family...so off we all four went. We ended up having a fun time and it helped my mood and I was happy to have gone. :)
Here we are at Barnes and Noble. I even got a few minutes to browse a cook book while the kids read/played.
Costco was on the agenda for lunch and I'm glad I didn't eat much because the store was filled with tons of samples which included more chocolate than I had ever seen.
Last night we watched another episode of The Pacific. It was a nice day, however I'll be honest and say while our outing was fun, I just couldn't shake my mood. Not sure the reason, but sometimes I guess you just have those days. Hopefully today will be better. :)
