Unmotivated

The last few days I have been unmotivated to blog. I think it probably has something to do with the fact that I'm not feeling the greatest. I had a wonderful mommy moment yesterday were I put my two oldest in tears. I didn't yell I simply told them I couldn't handle the fighting and teasing anymore and that maybe I shouldn't be there mom anymore since they don't listen to me. I was in tears too. It is EVERY. LITTLE. THING. with them. I think when I have bad days health wise I let things slide because I physically can't handle them. Something needs to change and I'm praying it is my health. But in all things God will give J and I the strength and wisdom to guide and train these children to His honor and glory. After J got home and the storm quieted down I was able to take Monkey out on a date. We had been trying to get a night that I could take him for the last few weeks and last night I just said tonight I'm doing it! We had a great time just the two of us. I really love that kid...he is super funny!

Today so far as gone a lot better. We needed to get to school a little earlier today because Red had his Christmas program that got snowed out in December. Monkey was the first ready and he helped with Red and other things that needed to get done for me. The kids had asked if they could go to the program and I told them I didn't know. Well I decided that they could come and they were very well behaved and GG took pictures for me. J did the video recording and I handled Peanut, who was not wanting to stay still and watch the program. Before we left the house this morning Red said to J, "Do I look handsome?" as he did a little dance with his fancy shoes on! And he DID look super handsome ;) Here are some of the pictures from today...
He was doing the motions to the song their were singing so sweet!

Glad you're having a better day too! I am in agreement, that is one of my number one "triggers"... physical discomfort of any kind. Most not feeling well, or when I am holding a child in an awkward way and they are too heavy, I become very impatient (get in the car now!!!) Alas, you're not alone. =)

I'm so sorry you haven't been feeling well-again!!! It must be so annoying to say the least.
There must be something that can help you out there!
Anyway, be praying for you.
