Mondays at the Tolbert house

Monday is here and another week has begun and a new month is about to begin. Time is flying by these days! Our house has very under the weather the past few days. I went to bed at 5:30 last night and slept until 7 this morning! So glad I have a hubby that can put the kids to bed on days like that! I woke up still feeling not the best, but with it being a new week I knew we had to start it out right or it would just be a mess here on out. So I pulled it together and sat down with Dana to help her with her schooling. We took lots of breaks and about noon, I started to feel great. I got some energy and took advantage of it accomplishing probably too much at a time. The girls must have sensed that I was busy because from there on out, they were fussing like newborns. I did not know weather to put them to bed or throw them outside. I found myself wanting to scream at the top of my lungs, their fighting was horrible today. It was nothing big, it was more like...I had it I did! Or your in my are staring at me....! I mean really? My patience was thin from being so sick and I had lots to do....after reminding myself that yelling would not help I calmly kept dealing with them, separating them, having Dana write sentences...(yes pulled that one out) time was a long day. They must have sensed it was Monday.....but anyways it was at dinner time where I finally felt my stress be relieved as we said our prayers and I thought of how blessed we are. Even with their little squabbling we all sat down as a family, like we do every night...(and take it for granted) and enjoyed our meal together. As a stay at home mom it feels like the biggest hug from God when I see my crazy day all wrapped up! It even got better as we sat on the couch after dinner and read books together. So glad for the renewed strength that I know comes from my Heavenly Father who loves me.....and helps me through my day.
