So yesterday my osteopath did some acupuncture on my shoulder after the usual manipulation and such.. I'm not expecting instant results but I think it feels less aggravated today.
My moan is, that I've done a few everyday tasks today, taking care of my girls, bit of grocery shopping, some washing and collected a parcel... Now I'm grumpy, aching and exhausted.. I've promised my girls we'll bake and decorate gingerbread men, kind of to make up for the fact that I've been so rubbish lately.. The thought of it is daunting.
My girls are 5 and nearly 4.. Like chalk and cheese... And they LOVE to bicker with each other..
What should be a fun session just makes me think of loud noise (which I can't tolerate when I'm low), arguments, moaning, pushing of boundaries and a hell of a lot of clearing up afterwards.. My moods and aches and generally my frame of mind often determines how well or not my girls behave and I don't want to ruin another passing moment with the two people in the world I cherish the most...
Does anyone have any tips for those unavoidable challenges I'm about to face.. A thought that can carry me through enjoying everyday tasks instead of these negative unproductive feelings.. Negativity seems to be the master here. It ruins me and I ruin everything else..
