I should have been in bed a long time ago but I'm hanging around just to make sure that this storm doesn't get any worse. It's pitch black out right now and it's windy and raining like crazy. I had to close all the windows because screens were blowing in, doors were slamming and it woke all the kids up.

I'm kind of liking it - because it's quiet now inside my house. It can storm as much as it wants out there as far as I'm concerned. I'm smiling because no one is whining at me. No one is beating the crap out of each other in the next room. For once, my eye isn't twitching.

Today was once of those days where I woke up tired and just seemed to lack patience. And as a single mom of 3, patience is my only hope some days. That and coffee. ;) I got through it though...one moment at a time. Instead of fighting the chaos and reacting to it, I've learned to embrace it. Kids, although crazy at times, are really very entertaining. They teach me a lot about myself. They are wise little beings.

We blew lot's of bubbles today, ate ice cream, played in the kiddie pool, visited Grandma, drank strawberry milk, laughed and cried, somebody peed on the floor, I cleaned it up....so many little things happened. It was lovely and exhausting all at the same time.






Well I better get to bed now despite how tempting it may be to stay up all night and soak up this glorious silence. :)
