Jill, I can totally relate! All except the 4 kids, swim team, swim lessons, target and cost trip, oh and my husband is not gone and I do have my teen at home to help. But I so get the PMS and cranky mom part...it's the heat, it can make anyone cranky.

Jill, i'm so sorry your having a hard time. I know it's gotta be hard when your hubby is gone. I pray that thursday comes fast for you. Hang in there!!

Thanks for sharing! It is nice to know I am not alone. Sometimes I feel so sorry for Grace during those cranky days... She sure deserves some kind of award for still giving me big hugs at the end of the day!

I love that song! SO LONG SELF! I need to sing that a couple few times everyday. You know, just to remind myself that it is not all about me. Thanks for the reminder! Hey I just thought of something that you can be thankful for... At least Ella doesn't have that hand foot mouth junk while Ron is away this time, on top of everything else! Whew! ;)

Wow!! It's okay!! You are probably a great mom even though you are cranky.

What a day! I think that's why I want to just have one kid per hand. I only have 2 hands! My husband doesn't want to stop once we start. But I say let's start with one!

I hope you feel better real soon!!!
