Well that was a long holiday. Seriously, it was 5 days of celebration. 5 days of swimming, fireworks, and late nights. 5 days of my children getting more and more overtired, which then causes nasty attitudes and meltdowns. Forcing me to go in survival mode and pour that extra glass of wine.
We needed a rest day. A day to do absolutely nothing and not feel bad about it. The sun was shining and the pool was calling, but we didn’t do a thing. They played Legos, watched movies, and played some video games. I caught up on laundry and did the grocery shopping. We just vegged. I almost took one of those things you call a “nap.” It was so needed. Typically I feel guilty when we hang in the house all day and do nothing, but it was just what we needed to recharge our batteries. And they actually made it to bed on time for the first time in a week. Bliss.
Have you recooped from the holiday yet?
