pulling hair


today has been a trying day. i woke up with a headache, which i still have 12 hours later, aidan was in rare form, and delia has been unusually fussy. so, most of my day was spent sitting on the couch holding delia while trying to play with aidan, read books, drink my lukewarm coffee and nurse my pounding head. my only solace came during naptime, during which i still sat holding delia, drinking my now cold coffee, nursing my pounding head. the result was getting nothing done today that i needed to get done. *sigh*...i hope these days are few and far between. i know i'm not super-mom and i can live with that. my goals are to make sure my children are changed, fed, rested, and happy. i know i can't do it all and that some days, nothing will get done (like today). i was happy today that in spite of the fact that it was rough, i did not lose perspective and i survived. i try not to get too snappy with ryan and aidan and i fail sometimes. but at the end of the day, they (at least ryan) understand, and aidan just knows i love him to pieces. i am happy with that.

aidan is now down for the night (hooray) and delia is finally asleep in her little bassinet. i can finally get that laundry started so ryan has clean underwear tomorrow. we all know how important that is. my verse for today:

Phil. 4:13 - "I can do all things..." (except maybe laundry)
