It is 2 a.m. on the first day of the year 2017.
My day was going fine, probably would have been safe to use the word ‘good’ without the fear of jinxing my day, and yes I strongly believe in it, unfortunately.
Since we are away on vacation, we decided to watch some TV, not having to worry about being early to bed or it being school night.
Until we started watching a movie, something we have already watched. Out of the blue my five year old started crying and throwing a tantrum that he wants the TV turned off because he is sleepy. Since I don’t get to watch a lot of TV, I ignored him as much as I could.
It took me nearly an hour to realize that he was actually scared of the protagonist in the movie, with a beastly and gory appearance in thr second half of the movie.
I got a little edgy. Okay, very.
Waited for kids to fall asleep, and finished a huge chocolate bar I didn’t even enjoy.
I think I need to get a planner out and start using it. At least then my notes won’t look like this:
Be patient ✗
Eat better ✗
Don’t indulge in useless TV ✗
What a way to welcome 2017
