Can you identify with this? Dad’s can you identify with this?
What is the breaking point that you know when its time for a time out for you? What does your timeout look like?
For me today is one of those days. I woke up this morning wanting to just lay around, watch HGTV, DVR and nap. But as I looked around the house I knew I can’t lay around and waste the day. I had laundry to fold and wash more. I needed to go to the grocery and do some meal prep. I knew my time frame was limited as we had to get to a girl scout meeting today at pm. So I chose to lay around until pm. I went to fold the 2 loads of laundry that was sitting all week. I put the sheets from all the beds into wash and left for girl scouts.
I had 1.5 hours to do some things for my home based while sitting at the library during her meeting. I got 2 things accomplished from that list and I felt good. I grabbed dinner (not fast food technically) and home I went. I ran to the store to grab a few things to get us by until Monday/Tuesday when I can meal prep for the week. Then I made brownies for my amazing husband per his request. I also snuck in making breakfast mini omelettes for the week. I come upstairs to see what is going on with laundry and it wasn’t where I thought it should be and I lost it. Yes my husband took the wrath in a short and sweet snarky comment I made. So then I start helping make the bed in my daughters bed and my back was hurting so I couldn’t do it and she wasn’t doing it as fast as I liked and I snipped at her. At that point I removed myself from all and here I sit in time out. I am blogging about it cause I feel like that is my therapy on how to NOT do this again. Now it didn’t take me long to figure out what I did wrong and how to TRY not to do it again.
The result was I procrastinated all day, fell behind and then it became everyone’s fault. I know it was my fault too but I was snipping at everyone around me.
Now I am about to cut up brownies for my family and give the peace offering.
