It's been a strange day.
I spent a good portion of the day believing that this loveable creature curled up in my right armpit was intent on destroying me.
Sometimes? My feelings get away from me.
I get angry sometimes.
I take things personally sometimes.
I tried so hard today to remain calm. To set calm boundaries and maintain my own sense of distance and space. But as the day went on, it spun up and she spun up and I spun up.
I want to be better at this.
I also want to be better at homemaking, at cooking and cleaning and getting my laundry done.
I want to be a better and more present wife.
I want to be a better, more prolific, more talented, braver writer.
I want to be a better steward of the environment.
I want to be a better friend, to be the one who remembers to reach out sometimes.
Today has been hard.
I'm doing my best.
