grumble grumble growl

today is not a good day. yesterday wasn't very good, and tomorrow isn't looking much better.

the worst part is that it's not like any one giant bad thing happened. there's nothing i can pinpoint as the reason why these days are bad. it's more of a feeling. like i feel all grumpy and sleepy and out of sorts. all i want to do is go to bed and stay there for a few hours and hope that when i get up whatever is going wrong has finally passed. of course, being that the main part of my day is wrangling my kiddies, and i can't really do that from bed, i kind of need to stay up and awake and mostly coherent.

also, though, i really need to try to stop yelling and getting frustrated with them. because they are kids, and they are all out of sorts too. but the cause for that is known: my boys have a snow day today, and we are family that lives for schedules, and now our schedule is all out of order. so they are stuck inside, and being boys, they are at each others throats when they are not seeing what mischief they can get into together.

so today i'm trying to keep everything together, to keep everything moving forward with the least amount of casualties as possible, to keep my calm when the world feels like it's spinning out of control.

ever have a day like that?
