Another day, another headache. After drinking tea for the past few days, I made a decaf coffee last night. And within an hour, I was angry and tense and everything was going wrong.

Arriving home from daycare, Felix ran away, Elliot was trying to bring a handful of sticks into the house for a project (which are currently still on the floor in the hallway). I chased down Felix and brought him, kicking and screaming, into the house just in time for Melon - aka hellcat - to escape out the front door, Elliot was still yelling on the porch because he couldn't get the door open with his arms full of sticks.

Got everyone in and dished up supper. Which the boys didn't want to eat. They wanted to slither off of their chairs, head first onto the floor. And then crawl under the table to hit the other brother.

Going upstairs to get Elliot out of time out, Melon raced past me. At the exact moment I swung my arm down. The arm holding an apple. And she rubbed all over it, coating it in hair.


Typing it out, it seems routine and silly. But my little brain couldn't handle it and I was yelling and trembling. Makes me want to bonkyhead the nearest wall - Felix's term for when he bumps his head.

So, maybe decaf is out, too. Rats.

I see my counselor today. Looking forward to my 50 minutes in her calming little office.

And yes, things look different over here. I wanted to put up a photo banner, but then the background (which I loved) didn't "match" and so I took it down and found something else. And then I decided to try Google Advertising, too. We'll see how that works out. I'm torn about it.

No. Your day does not seem stupid reading it, not at all. My girls were once that little and days like that just defeated me. It was just the culmination of everything going south. I feel you. and remember, it will only get better.

Aww, huggies. Tomorrow will be better (or if not, SOME day will).

Sorry to hear about your frustrating day! I know how you feel and it doesn't seem silly at all. Sometimes, I am good all day long, no matter what little annoyances happen and then it's one tiny little last thing that send me over the edge. Sometimes, I just wake up irritated and stay irritated all day long!

Thanks for the love,ladies!! Exactly what I needed on this chilly morning, before I head out to write a midterm I've barely studied for. (And as I watch the boys trash the livingroom - on top of the disaster that was left from yesterday!)
