Sometimes you just have a long day, you know? As I’ve mentioned a million times before, our school days start at 5:30 because middle school starts so early. So I started the day bright and early and had an incredibly long day at work with barely a break. I came home and enjoyed dinner (fortunately ready when I got home – thank you, Crockpot!) with my family and headed right back out to a PTA board meeting. I got home at just about 9:00 and headed to bed with everyone else in the family. And I couldn’t get to sleep because I knew we were out of milk and I was going to have to go to the store early in the morning. So rather than laying there and worrying about it any longer, I decided to get up and run out to the store. I got the milk. I don’t have to dread an early morning run to the grocery store with Brinkley.
And while I was there, I saw something I knew would make me feel better. So now I’m enjoying mini Reese’s Cups and a new episode of Parenthood. And I guarantee I’ll rest better when I head back to bed in a little bit. Sometimes the prescription for the stress of a long day is a little wind down time at the end of the day – at least for me.
