Always listen to your gut Dummy!

Yesterday after work and school we took a little road trip with Bonnie and Carlie. They had some Father's day errands to do and planned dinner at Red Robin so we tagged along.
It turned out to be one of the worse trips I have had in a while. Not the trip itself, that was fine. It was just the general tone.
I stood with Ava while she stressed out over her homework and erased and got angry and erased again. It seemed simple enough but she was overwhelmed.
I ignored the small twinge in me that said Don't go. I had made a plan and against my better judgement I decided to stick with it. I was really thinking once we get on the road it will be fun.
I packed some snacks and some juice but apparently she never got any of those.
By the time we got to Lowe's she was trying to hold it together but she was angry and crying.
Red Robin was painful and took forever. I think even 2 kids were crying by then.
I looked at my watch and it said 7:21 and our food had not even arrived.
After seeing a family get the Yay, Birthday song and ice cream we informed our waitress it was Olivia's birthday the other day so they did that for her.
This leaves 2 little girls ice cream-less and of course we make a plan to stop at Betty Anne's.
Now everyone is ice creamed up-Even this woman who had gone mostly sugar free though out the day.
Bedtime is now after 9.
I am sugar angry, frustrated, killing myself over what a bad idea this whole night has been.
I end up being the 3rd victim to cry for the night.
Today is a new day.
I need to get Ava to the Doctor by 3:30 and address the medication. It isn't working.
A new day to attempt to cut the sugar again.
Learn to listen to the gut.
Family first.
I was overwhelmed, she was overwhelmed and food is our enemy.
