The early afternoon  sucked.  I was bordering on hysterical.  I was snapping at the kids.  I felt like kicking the dog.  I did kick the cat, but he’s a pain in the ass and deserved it.

I spent the past few hours hanging out with my parents.  We’ve been busy –> taking Caitlin to a party; dropping off my truck in Falmouth; grocery store <– and the busy-ness has been good for me. 

Now, we’re sitting here enjoying some quiet time.  We’re picking Caitlin up in an hour and then we get to relax for the rest of the night.  I’m calm. I hope this feeling lasts for the next 20 hours.
