Oh, wait...Friday won't take away my troubles.
Is it Saturday, then?
Ummm...no. Saturday will have no more success taking away the daily distresses than Friday had.
I guess I just need to hold on and hang in for the long haul.
In the mean time, I will pretend that Claude and I were not woken up sometime in the middle of night by a 45 minute tantrum.
No, it wasn't a night terror. It was a full-fledged "I didn't get what I wanted so I'm going to scream as loud as I possibly can for as long as I can stand it to see if you'll give in" fit.
I will also pretend that the morning has not included another hour of screaming and outright disobedience from the afrementioned middle of the night tantrum thrower.
No, this child is not ill. This child simply wants his/her own way.
Instead, I already took a few minutes to stand on our giant porch. I listened to the birds chirping and the general calming sounds of nature. Of course, I ignored the sound of cars racing down out little country highway and the smell of the trash cans that were sitting right in front of me.
I snapped the below photograph before heading inside.
This is the view from our
kitchen window. Green. Crisp. Spring. Isn't it beautiful?
Now, I will poor a cup of tea and continue on with the morning routine as usual.
And wait for Friday in the hope that it will start off a better foot than Thursday has.
