I am going to put all this in the freezer.  I am not going to eat it.

Even though I am tired (H didn’t sleep well). Even though M is tantrumming. Even though R is dragging his feet getting dressed.

I am not going to eat cake.

It won’t help.

Even if I feel like right now it will help.

Intellectually I know it won’t help.

But I can only control so much at a time, and so while controlling my eating, I yell at H&M who are annoying each other. Is it better to eat cake or yell at kids? Probably the cake, but it’s too late now.

We’ll get out the door soon and camp out at my parents for the rest of the day and everything will be fine.
