i really dislike days like today

it is beautiful outside but i’m too tired to enjoy it
the kids keep bickering every 5 seconds
claire is just walking room to room making messes – she’s bored
so i send everyone outside to play while i try and clean up the kitchen
not 2 seconds later there is an argument (why did i even think it would go well)
now someone is hurt
now the baby is crying
now i realize it’s 12 and i really need to stop and feed them all
i still need to get to the bank and post office
i still need to finish paying the bills
cleaning the house
doing the laundry
finishing up school work for the day…

and all i want to do is go climb back into bed and sleep….
