Sometimes Moms Need a Time Out
It had been long day teaching, and now I was cooking my second big meal of the day. I was tired and wasn’t excited about what I was cooking. Lunch had turned out okay but took twice as long to cook since the gas bottle went out in the middle of cooking. Now my supper looked to be just blah. My family is not picky, but I love the sight of their faces when I cook something they like. I knew this would not be one of those nights. Plus I was having a pity part that I was in the kitchen working so hard while they were in the living room reading and having fun. They were taking a much needed break after a long day of school and work. Being a insecure about supper to start with, I was a little defensive and grumpy to the comments made as we sat down to eat. Nothing coming out of my mouth was what I wanted to say. This momma needed a time out. After supper, I excused myself and sent myself to my room where I took some much needed time to unwind from the day and reboot.
