Why do we sometimes not sleep well?
Why do we sometimes become irritable?
Let’s just say that was me yesterday! It maybe because my son and husband do not get along or even communicate very well. They seem to trigger each other. Or it may be the fact that sometimes I feel as if our communication as husband and wife is horrible as well, and feels like we are triggering each other. Either way irritations have been running rampant lately.
The kids not listening the first time I ask them to do something. The whining that takes place when I say no you may not have that or you can’t do that at this time. I explain that we will be eating in a half hour so eatting the sweets is not happening or I need to do something else before you can do the thing you want (such as pick up the camper so we can do the arts and crafts or even i need to find the water balloons before we use them)
We need to get home so I can get lunch made or if you are thirsty we have water at our home our camper is just down the road from a friend’s place (Since hurricane Ida it has been a bit hard to get produce or even water at certain times during the day). No need for my kids to drink our friends bottled water.
Not to mention for some reason other people’s children were bothersome (no fault of theirs all mine). Not being able to sleep very well this week is taking its toll. I should just lock myself away until this is all done.
I might be drinking to much caffeine in the morning as well. Usually I can only get away with drinking one to two cups of coffee a day. The second I have to drink all gone right away otherwise I do not sleep well. If I sip all day it is not good. Even with the running I have been doing every other day I have not been able to sleep well. I may need to cut back a little to see if that helps.
On a different note I completed week 3 day 3 today. The three minute runs are getting easier. Even though I am able to run for three minutes now I am going to do another round of week three before moving on. I was going to start running everyday on the first of October but I might just start this week instead.
I feel so much more capable to take care of everything if I tend to my mental health and nervous system. I only say this because after my run today I was able to handle how my kids better. It is not their fault but my own. They have a sixth sense as to how their parents are feeling.
