I've been a wicked mother today...sigh. I'm under so much pressure these next few months with lots of family and financial stuff going on, and I've had to get up at 4 am the past few days because of schedule juggling. Yet, I can't convince my body to go to sleep any earlier at night. My kids are really irritating. Not really, I know it's me-I'm irritable. Still, I wish they would go away for a few days so I could cherish them anew.

Our own stress does make it hard to fully appreciate our kiddos at times. But it is just for a time. Remember, lots of DEEEEEEEEP Breathes. Maybe a little Bach's Rescue Remedy? Blessings

Sleep is of the essence. I got none last night. I was up at 3 am listening to my dog bark for no reason whatsoever & road construction on the next road over. If I can get through this day...
Brandywine, now that I know that chant, I fear I may use it...will the goblins bring them back after I've had a nap?
