I am having a really emotional day. I took my son to his first dental repair visit today. It was very stressful for both of us, and I just wanted to bring him home and cuddle/comfort him afterwards, but I had to bring him to school. I'm sure he is fine, but the whole experience made me feel like a horrible parent for exposing him to it (read my other blog, Raising Autism for details). Then, when I did get him to school, the staff in the office was just as cold as his dentist had been, and I just wanted to scream. Or self-comfort. Or sleep off the bad vibe. I did none of the above. I made myself my usual breakfast and ate it while watching The View. It just seems like this family has been going through our little health hiccups lately, and I am growing exhausted from trying to hold things together. I totally understand how stay-at-home moms tell you raising a family is a full time job. I am way more stressed out just handling the family than I was when I was working.
Since I was already all emotional, and not in a good place, I decided to watch A&E's new show "Heavy" on-line. WOW! That show is AWESOME!!! I thought biggest loser was inspiring, but they've got nothing on this show. I couldn't take my eyes off it, it was so fascinating to me. I was really pulling for them to stick with it and lose the weight, and found it really uplifting to see the mental transformation in progress. What an awesome, inspirational show! I hope it does well in ratings so that they continue it. I am definitely a fan.
Being that I am in a pretty low place today, I am not going to drone on and on. Hope everyone is having a super successful day and loving every minute of it!
