Today was not my day.  I was irritated all day.  It was one of those days where no matter what I said no one really followed directions or even seemed to hear me.

At one point in time I had a small meltdown and everyone had to be in timeout at the same time.  If you live here you have to help out.  I am not anyone's maid.

The actual meltdown occurred when I was cleaning an ice cream stain off the carpet.  I went to move the chair where I noticed ice cream had been spilled only to find a HUGE chocolate stain on the carpet.  We had a family meeting to discuss that I will be less angry if you tell me you spilled something all over the carpet than if you try to hide it under furniture.  From the looks of the carpet stains I found it didn't occur to ANYONE to actually try to clean up the spill....just hide it.

We are only eating at the kitchen table until further notice.  You cannot even take a glass of water out of the kitchen unless I give you specific permission...per incident.

I cleaned all of the carpet with the exception of the stairs.  I just didn't have the energy to tackle those.

We had a meeting to discuss whether or not I was being fair.  It was determined by all three boys that what I was asking was not unreasonable.  I was pretty sure it wasn't...I just wanted to verify.

Prayers for patience for me.
