With all five kids at home, for yet another school break, my nerves are a trifle frayed! This morning when I woke up I just wanted to curl up and hide under the covers.
But since there's no point (kids will always find you!) I did the next best thing: I put on my running shoes told the bickering kids they could watch tv for half an hour, and ran out the door as fast as I could.
Slowly but surely my mind calmed down and I began to feel better. By the end of my run I felt ready for the world, yes even for my kids!
Where would I be without running?
Probably somewhere in the bathroom, crying.
