Well, my vacation glow lasted for less than 24 hours. Back in the day, when I took week-long trips to Hawaii I would come back to home and work and have at least a couple days feeling like a new person. Like I could handle anything. And that everything was so lovely.
That was then, this is now. I got back at 2:30 pm on Wednesday and by 10:00 am Thursday I was sick of it all. My cramped apartment, lack of dishwasher, whining kid, etc. etc. Then we went to the zoo in the afternoon and said child would not listen to me, and kept running away. Last night he was up for two hours starting at 12:45.
I think he just worked so hard to be good on the long drive home that he lost it the next day. And who better to lose it with than Mom?
