I liked this shot simply because of the intensity of the deep stormy blue ... of the zillionth storm coming through when we were at the beach.
And beside the fact that today is actually drizzly and dark, I include this photo along with a confession. I did great for 6 whole days... and then yesterday morning...after a weekend without exercise, quality Mama time or much sleep, I finally lost it! Yup... I couldn't quite keep in the primal scream any longer which said... "I can't take it anymore! (at least for a minute). And I didn't even manage to do the recommended Carol Burnette Tarzan yell which the kids and I have discussed as the appropriate way to let off steam. Darn it all. Oh well... Nobody's perfect. The good news is that I recovered fairly quickly, I didn't really yell AT anyone and I apologized to the kids and promised to keep working on doing better.
It has been a rough week with a double-toothache (the boy) and on-going 4 1/2 year old girl developmental struggles. The good news in the midst of all this... School is coming, I believe I've actually lost 2 pounds somehow and hopefully I'll get more sleep tonight.
As a parent, or a non-parent, what about kids makes you yell (or want to anyway)?
