I am so thankful for FF1's support this weekend! I had a challenging week leading up to it - between B2's rollercoaster moods and B1's sassy, agrumentative and uncompliant behavior. I think FF1 could sense that if I didn't have a break soon that I was going to snap! Friday night I was able to go out with friends (until 1:30 AM, mind you - I don't think that I ever even stayed out that late in my 20's!, but I REALLY needed it!)and had a Saturday shopping trip to the mall & lunch with-o kids. I think that B1 & B2 can sense that I am not as stressed now because they have been playing & getting along better today. I plan on taking them today to the local beach for swimming and a picnic while FF1 is doing a 24 hr shift @ work. Hopefully FF1 can see the difference in my stress level so that he will be more supportive of me having "me time" more often!
