The day I snapped.......and shot my family!

The day had started much the same as the day before......

It was hot.......real hot.....

..it was about the 4th day in a row where the temperature had climbed over 36 degrees and I was really feeling the stress and lethargy that heat tends to bring with it.......

....I was done.....

...bone tired.....

...the build up to Christmas day was stressful.......and busy........

... it was me who had to do all the Xmas preperations.....

...all the shopping.....

....all the gift buying....

...all the wrapping....

...all the cooking.....

....all that false happiness....blah!...

....boxing day arrived with more heat and lots of mess!...

...lots of empty boxes......lots of new gifts left all over the floor....left over wrapping paper all over the floor...messing with my head space and my OCD ness........

...AND....the worst thing?.....

.....a child.... "coming down" after eating the  crap, sugar filled stocking of lollies and other nasties, given "thoughtfully" by loving relations.....whinging and crying......

....and my man....standing there with the fridge door open....looking at the copious amount of left over chicken....pork....salads and ham...(oh god, that ham!)....and asking..."what is there to eat"?.........

...something snapped.....

...I heard it go......

....What did I do?.....what would you do?

.....I walked outside where my partner and 2 children now had gone.....


....almost trance like.....

...I picked up the gun......

...I knew it was loaded ....... 

.....I could feel the weight of it......

....I raised it up  and felt the coolness  of the barrel on my shoulder....

....it felt good.....

....it felt right....

...My partner looked around at me......

...I hesitated.....

...could I do this?...did I really want to do this?...had I thought it through?.....what would be the consequences? ......


....just as i started to lower the gun, my partner looked across at me.....


...the look said it all....

..."you don't have the guts"...

...."I dare you"...he said.... 

....so....


....I raised the gun back.....


....and I pulled the trigger!....

....and it FELT GOOD!...

...as if all my pent up anger and frustration....all my tiredness and stress was released through my trigger finger and vanished into thin air......

....for a brief moment I felt free......


...I watched as a look of surprise flicked across his face......


...then he smiled.....


....water dripped down his face and into his eyes.....


....he raised his water pistol to fire back at me.....


...and it was on......


...the great 3 day family water fight that will go down in history as the greatest water battle of all time!......


.....no-one was exempt....

....not even the baby.....


....as we ran screaming and laughing around the back yard in our underwear (or naked in the case of the kids).....


....I remember thinking ....

....."people pay for family therapy?"....


.......I honestly have to say that this was the best fun we had all had together in the longest time......


.......we have now brought some bigger and better water pistols in preparation for the next spat of extreme hot weather......

...BRING IT ON!!!!!....
