“A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though you are slightly cracked.” 🙂
When in a rut, flustered and at your wit’s end, call a friend. Organise a playdate and a cuppa.
I have been guilty of avoiding situations like this in the past as I have told myself stupid things like:
* My house is too messy to have people over
* No one would want to listen to me whinge
* The kids are off the planet, I can’t take them anywhere
* etc etc etc….
The truth is we are often all in the very same boat.
Your dear friends could be sitting there hoping for a distraction from their own chaos. So pick up that PHONE!!!
Even an hour of decent adult conversation can be enough to get you through a long and draining day! And if your dear friend has children, your kids are likely to leave you to it and go and play!
Give it a try!
