My girls are off from school for a few days this week. I let them stay up a little later than they normally would on a school night. Last night they were watching a movie in Megan’s room so I let them stay up until it was over. As Criminal Minds, which I was watching, ended I called for them to brush their teeth and get ready for bed. The sigh that came from the room was almost deafening. As I asked what was wrong they explained that they were being super quiet in an attempt to stay up until 10pm, which is very late for them. I looked at the clock it was 9:57. Amazing how three minutes can ruin an entire day.
Then there is this morning. I realized what and important span of time three minutes could be. It only took about that long for my mood to turn once I remembered that I could not have a cup of coffee. No solid foods, no tasty M&M’s from the halloween bowl! The thoughts of only water and ginger ale today is very depressing.
I will spend the day doing some cleaning and just staying busy. Going to be a long day!
