*edited at bottom*
Friends, this has been a heck of a week. Things are always a hectic this time of year, but this week has been unbelievably busy. Multiple school projects. Costumes. Assemblies. Papers. Track meets. Parties. Meetings. Homework (I am so ready for my kids to stop bringing homework home). And life.
Some stuff has happened this week that has made it a hard week for me personally. Drama. Complaints. Phone calls. Emails. Dilemnas. Unanswered questions. Irresponsibility. Confrontation. Ick. Yuck. Ugh.
I've been angry. In fact, I've been very angry. For the life of me I can't figure out why I can't "snap out of it". My attitude, my language, my expressions, everything reeks of anger. If I told you the half of it, you'd probably agree that some of it is justified. What surprises me the most is how deep some of this feels, where it's coming from, and why I'm having such a problem just letting it go.
*I'm feeling a little more peaceful this evening. I took a long, hot bath and tried to just be still and evaluate what was really going on. I think it's just been one thing after another this week, and I'm tired physcially, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. Although I really should go grocery shopping in the morning, I'm going to skip that in favor of a hike with my friends. Exercise and fresh air are always good for my heart!*
