We were up early this morning for breakfast, so I didn't have time for yoga before we left. We walked a lot and had fun, but everyone was dragging by the end of the day. It gets so much harder to maintain a filter when I'm exhaused!
Every complaint from a kid is harder to tolerate. Every jostle from someone in the crowd makes me irritated. The kids struggled to the end of the day, and couldn't help poking and fighting with each other. Then I couldn't help yelling at them. Ugh.
A bottle of water and some time sitting down left us refreshed for a quiet evening. We will be trying for a late night of parade and fireworks tomorrow. I hope we can all wrap ourselves in some tolerance, if not exactly good will towards all.
