Oh but there's more! Since I didn't get much sleep I tried to sleep during Ayden's morning nap because I knew it would be my only chance to get a little extra rest today. After laying there for a half hour trying my hardest to sleep, I got up with a terrible feeling of anxiety. It's funny because the movie we watched last night was "In Time" and in it, time is money. Literally. If they were out of "time" there was nothing left. The poor people who didn't have much time, ran everywhere and lived one day at a time. I totally feel like one of them. Laying there for a half hour without sleeping was SUCH a waste of time. All I could think about was all of the things that I could have accomplished during those precious, baby free, minutes that I'd never get back. When I finally got up, I got started on a project and not 5 minutes had passed before Ayden woke up. For the rest of the day, David and I were busy with various projects, the ant situation, etc. Poor Ayden got to the point where he was fussy and didn't want to be put down because he needed some one on one attention. It's not always easy to find balance between productivity and parenting, though there's no question as to which is more important, you sometimes get overwhelmed by life and forget to prioritize properly. After arguing a little, David and I stopped and reminded each other that we are in charge of our happiness and though we can't control everything that happens in our day, we can control how we react to it. I quickly finished meal planning so we could get to the grocery and as soon as we got out of our neighborhood we could feel some of the stress melting away. It turns out, we just needed to step away from the problems so we could breathe and clear our heads.
Also adding to the stress of the day was the fact that we are having a heat wave here in the Bluegrass.
|101*, feels like 102*. YIKES!|
Actually we aren't certain about the true cause but I wouldn't be surprised if this heat caused it! The fire trucks were pulling away as we got there.
The atmosphere in Whole Foods is always nice for us and today they were having a local fest which made it feel a little like the farmer's market, which we also love.
