We spent last week in Anchorage and had such a wonderful, wonderful time but it sure is good to be home. It has been unusually hot here, and without having a well we aren't able to just turn on the hose and play in the water. So last night, to beat the heat, the kids and I took Diesel down to the river to take a little break. Ever found pretty rocks to bring home, Tell threw rocks, Diesel got to cool off, and by the end of the trip both kids were naked and playing in the mud and puddles. Such a good time ....
|Tell found a new flavor of Sun Chips -- 'Gulkana River Mud'|
Today has been trying, as a lot of days have been lately. Not sure if it's the heat, or the kids, or the baby that is wearing me out so, but I'm plum worn out. Thinking I need to tattoo "RELAX" or "PEACE" or "CALM DOWN!" onto the backs of my hands. As my energy decreases, so does my patience.
Is there a trick to being a calm, gentle, happy mother?
Do I need to set the alarm and do yoga every morning? Hmmm, I could see that backfiring ...
Is there a bracelet you can wear? Or a book you can read?
Somebody help me out here.
I love them so much and want that energy to overcome my tiredness and impatience.
