Blech.

I had one of those days today. You know what I'm talking about, the kind when voluntary commitment to a psychiatric unit sounds like a good idea because at least they'd probably give you sedatives and a bed and no one under five feet tall would demand anything of you. And if there were crazy people around you, it at least wouldn't be your job to take care of them.

My morning involved tantrums (Jack) and tears (me). The afternoon included a one-hour respite (thank you, L, for my one peaceful period of the day) followed by dumb decisions by me to drag three kids to karate and then math night at the elementary school. Needless to say, there was more craziness, tantrums, and at bedtime, tears (this time by the kids). And I just realized that I don't think I've eaten a bite of anything all day.

I've decided not to crush you all with the details, but I just needed to do some venting.

Thank you. And now I'm going to go track down some food. Hopefully chocolate.

  2. Hope you get a chance to put your feet up and maybe sip a little wine. And if you happen to nod off and drool on yourself while small people laugh at you - oh well - it's still sleep!

  4. Enjoy your evening! Never EVER go to math night! It's bad bad bad. But you know that now. I always curse myself when I bring my boys somewhere and think why did I do this? But I do it again and again and again... but I only have two boys!

  5. I know this isn't about ME, but it sure makes me feel better after a hard day to know that at least one other person out there wasn't a super achiever mom today, either. Thanks for writing this post. I hope tomorrow is better for your family (and for mine, too!)

  8. Yeah, Blech.

    What a sucky day. Not helped by not eating. Not that I can talk, days like that, you just don't feel like it. Or have the brain space to even think about it.

    Sending some huge cyber hugs your way. Hope they help :)

  9. Thank all. I love your cyber-support. I did find chocolate: peanut butter M&Ms. Yum.

    New day, new plan. Cross your fingers for us!

  10. PB m&m's OMG those are the best. I had a bag of those last week during my pity party and had to tell hubby to never bring them in the house again no matter how much I whine to him while his driving home from work.

    Good luck today!

  11. I considered the psych unit myself last week. All 3 kids and a husband puking on different days. I thought I'd tear my hair out. NOT FUN!! I feel your pain. I hope you're having a MUCH better day today!!
