Soul Crushing

That Moment...
When you walk in the front door
.after working a nine-hour day at an automaton job
.after driving in a car with no air conditioning
.to pick up three kids who have been outside all day and are exhausted
.and you step from the blistering heat into the dry cool air of your apartment
.only to realize your day might be over but your evening stretches out in long swaths of hours and minutes in front of you with nothing but running and fetching and cooking and bathing and calming and soothing for the next five hours?

That moment is soul crushing.

It's a damn good thing those kids are cute or I'd be a mess...
