Do you have that magic mark that hits each day when you are just DONE. That energized, happy, optimistic mom is gone. She’s gone somewhere deep inside not to return until tomorrow. Mine is 6:30pm I can go-go-go all day and I usually accomplish a lot. I keep the house up, the kids fed, clothed, happy. We play, we talk, we laugh, we smile. But after 6:30pm I become this other person who is tired, worn, emotionless and unenthused about the rest of the day. It’s not fair! Why does everyone during the day get the best of me but my husband gets the worst when he gets home. That is not what I want for him, for me, for us.
Well I better get off and finish the day with all I have left. I wish the kitchen was clean, the kids were washed and ready for bed, the giggle bugs settled, the books read and the lights off. I wish. But what I wish more is I could find a way to get through the evenings with M,E the real me, the me everyone gets during the day.
Does this happen to anyone else? What do you do? Anything work for you?
