I've about had it.

Ok, my husband, who I love dearly, has been out of town for the past 3 days.  This isn't unusual because his job requires a lot of travel.  But for some reason, this week has been especially hard.  Could it be because Mary Emma was up all night with nightmares, which made the following day exhausting?  Could it be because it has been raining and freezing for these 3 days?  Could it be because I've already changed 4 diapers this morning and I can smell 2 kids who definitely need ANOTHER change?  Could it be because I have cleaned up toys in the den 5 million times over the past 3 days and it still looks like a hurricane hit?  Could it be because I have even more to do this week because we are hosting my husband's entire family this weekend?  Could it be because I don't feel well and seriously want to rip this sore throat out of my head?  I mean, come on, I'm sooo over having a sore throat. Could it be that I bought Mary Emma a bag of 500 mini pom poms to decorate her 101st day of school hat and Tait just spilled all 500 all over the den floor?  Could it be because I think Camille just ate one of those pom poms?  

Ok, I've vented.  I don't feel much better, as the "venting myth" states, but at least I've vented.  Now off to change diapers.....again.

Welcome to the world of blog. I saw your blog for LPM ministries and notice you are also from Alabama. As a matter of fact not far from me. I live about an hour north of you. It is so great to be able to meet other women that love the Lord. I will keep you in my prayers while you are raising three daughters. I have two sons, and I made it. But it takes alot of prayer.

Attalla, AL

I read your comment on the LPM blog that you are going to the conference in San Antonio in Aug.
My daughter and I are going. I think it's going to be so much fun to run into other Siestas we've "met" on here.
I'll be talking to you again soon.

Hi! I saw your comment on the LPM site! I TOTALLY understand EVERYTHING you're saying! It's tough sometimes, but don't you agree we are so TOTALLY blessed! I have to think about that when I've had a rough day too! Hang in there sister!!
