When I am tired and ornery, I end up getting sarcastic and sometimes almost funny. Some mothers almost always blog from this state and their blogs are big hits. I find it takes too much out of me to maintain that state long enough to produce anything funny from it, but plain and simple sarcasm comes much easier. However funny it may be it is not a state of mind that invites the calming spirit that I, as a tired mother, so desperately need. And as I learned with Galen whatever emotions I show will be amplified 100 times and returned to me.
So to return to calm and peaceful is the goal, and then there might even be a slight chance that the kids may actually sleep tonight, so I can too.
