I know we ALL have them, one of THOSE days.. where NOTHING goes right and everything that can go wrong, does. The kids are completely misbehaving, and everything I do, seems to be for nothing, today kind of day. Everytime I turn around, something needs my attention, or one of my kids has done something naughty or they are fighting like crazy. I DON’T like today, at all. Oh, and it is MONDAY, who would have thought?? The weather outside is impossible! Big HUGE snow flurries, then pure blue skies and then hail and then a blizzard again, go figure! K, I swear this is not going to be a vent, it is just an unbelievable kind of day, and not in a good way!
Finally some quiet (I put the kids in their own rooms and am giving them some quiet time, much needed quiet time FOR ME 😉 )
I hope everyone is having a better day then me. I know my day will be better tomorrow, right??? I was so stressed, that I googled stressed moms and got this: Here is where I got the below info http://www.acqyr.com/stress/stress-busters-for-moms–sanity-saving-tips-for-stressed-out-mothers
I am soooo glad that I did read that! Go ahead, if you are stressed out that is the article for you. Good advice in it and well written. I especially like this paragraph:
If You Ever Find Yourself “Losing It” Take a Time-Out
Let’s face it, everyone has one of THOSE days when you’re tired, patience has run thin and the stress is overwhelming. If you feel like you are about to snap, remove yourself from the situation. Go to a quiet room for at least a minute. Take a deep breath. Exhale. Repeat. Visualize the way you would like to handle the situation, and work toward that goal. Remind yourself how important it is to stay in control of your emotions and in control of your actions.
See, I am NOT the only one! 🙂 I feel MUCH better now!
Here is my randomness for today….
VAMPIRE SKELETON FOUND IN VENICE???
Well, I was browsing the net a bit, and came across this one. Goodness.. could it really be? Here is where I got the info: http://abcnews.go.com/Technology/story?id=7022975&page=1
A skeleton exhumed from a grave in Venice is being claimed as the first known example of the “vampires” widely referred to in contemporary documents.
Matteo Borrini of the University of Florence in Italy found the skeleton of a woman with a small brick in her mouth while excavating mass graves of plague victims from the Middle Ages on Lazzaretto Nuovo Island in Venice.
At the time the woman died, many people believed that the plague was spread by “vampires” which, rather than drinking people’s blood, spread disease by chewing on their shrouds after dying. Grave-diggers put bricks in the mouths of suspected vampires to stop them doing this, Borrini says.
Believe it or not? 🙂
