This was a perfect challenge to do on the weekend. We already have an agreement that on saturdays I am allowed to sleep in as long as I want, which stemmed from Hubby seeing how frazzled I get if I have to wake up with the kids 7 days a week. For those of you that follow me on facebook and twitter, you saw me mention how I missed out on the great weather Saturday because I slept in. I had no qualms missing it though; the weekdays really take a beating on me sometimes and I need a good recharge. Hubby doesn’t really have the ability to sleep in since his body wakes him up at 6am, no matter if he has work or not. But, I do make sure to let him take a nap or at least rest back in our bedroom sometime during the weekend.
This was a tough one to do on this particular day since we had so much to do within one day(family breakfast, church, bowling tournament) so the kids would already be an issue, and little did I know, my fatigue would too. We ended up having a tiff, OK a full-blown argument, by the end of the day and it was basically from how tired I was from the day and some other little annoyances he managed to do during the day. The “tea kettle” in me unfortunately lets this happen every once in a while, which is one of the reasons I wanted to do this challenge. We still haven’t talked about it; he fell asleep while I was cleaning up the kitchen and this morning he was running late, so no time to talk about it before work. Maybe I’ll e-mail him later today and he can read it during his lunch break or something. We both know what our “core issues” are already, it’s just a point of acknowledging them when they cause a strife during the day.
