gimme a break!

today has been stressful.

my job is requiring me to travel a whole bunch over the next 2-3 months.
i don't want to go. i want to stay with my kids and take care of my baby. they need me.

i am breaking out in eczema rash all over my arms and legs. don't worry--it looks totally girly.

then i tripped over the curb in the parking lot of anna's dancing school and fell in the bushes and leaves.
that was actually very funny and i adore my friend susan for making sure i was ok before she laughed.

then i got home and josh was agitating me and being disrespectful and moody so i screamed and hollered and sent him to his bed. and he cried. and john yelled at me and i yelled at him too.

then i knocked over a picture in the bathroom and the glass broke. i love that frame and now it's ruined.

and i ate two mini ice cream sandwiches. because they don't yell at me nor do they agitate me.

but now i feel horrible and sad.

and i really want another ice cream sandwich.

and i miss my mom and dad. (just throwing that one in there because i really do).

i just need a break.

here are a couple of pictures from anna's dance class tonight, the highlight of my day.

i hope tomorrow will be much better.

Momma said there'd be days like this! Kids can be cranky and trying,but that's just kids. I'm sure Josh was tired getting up so early and you've had little sleep too. It can certainly catch up with you. Count to ten next time! Loved the pics of Anna! Love to all,Nana

I think we've all been there. I've been reading your blog for some time now. It's inspiring how down to earth you are. I'm the mother of three, a teacher, and expecting our fourth in May. I'm wondering how in the world I will balance it all. Hang in there and thanks for keeping it real!
