We are getting our family picture taken this evening for the church pictorial directory and I am dreading it.
I've chosen blue dresses for the girls to wear and they are going to pitch a fit and get cranky over having to wear a dress on a day that is not a Sunday.
Mr. Quimby hates being late and is always worried about being late, so leaving the house is likely to make all three of them cranky.
Them getting cranky will make Mr. Q cranky. The hard sell that the photographer will do to try to get us to buy additional pictures will make Mr. Q even more cranky.
I'm removing myself from the situation. My office space is close to our church, so I will just be meeting them there. Mr. Q and I both think this is a good idea because if I'm there it's just one more person to add stress to the situation. Sadly, I'm not able to diffuse Mr. Q's crankiness once he gets started (anything I try to do to help just adds to it) so it's really better if I'm not there.
Honestly, this is just such a huge potential for a cluster f@$* that I'm DREADING it. It's just one of those things that I feel we have to do.
Pray for me !
