Same story different day

I am really sure I have posted on this topic before but I find myself at my wits end yet again with my older children. They can not seem to get along to save their lives. And I do mean to sav their lives, as I am about to pull my hair out. They fight and pick and bicker from the moment they wake up till the moment they go to bed. I am beginning to feel like a horrible mother and I am not sure what to do. I am finding myself yelling and shouting far more than I ever want to. I do not want to yell and fuss at my children. But as of right now, not a morning goes by without at least 3 arguments, 2 punishments, and 1 defeated mother. Nothing seems to work. I have tried bribery, punishments, lectures, rewards, chores, you name it and I have tried it. I feel undone and worthless and exhausted by 9:20 and the day has barely even started. What am I to do with them? No one warned me of this part of mothering. Shoot give me the terrible twos, temper tantrums, and potty training threes any day of the week over this mess.

I am tired this evening. Why I ask myself? What is it about being in the house with sick children all day that makes you tired? I did not accomplish an over abundant amount of things today. I did not do anything extraordinary. I did not cook an absolutely scrumptious homemade meal or clean out entire rooms. So why am I so tired? Could it be the 7500 trips up and down the stairs for drinks and food for Logan? Could it be the 45 games of Ninja I played with Parker? Could it be the 17 loads of laundry or the mountain of dirty dishes in the sink? Maybe the in and out and to and from of the dog? Whatever it may be, I hope I have more energy tomorrow.

Thought it might be funny

i thought it might be funny if I posted wht a post would loike before i edited it. soemtimes my fingers to tyoing dso fast that the words run together and the letters do not go togerther as words. I have so much to say and m thoughts are running together AND i have such limited time that i try to get everyithng down in such a hurry. sometimes, even after the check, i still post with errors. THE I feel the need to go back and fix the post becasue heaven forbid shoulf people see what my typing really looked like.
So, if I was typig this post and did not go affter myself and spell check and edit for typos THIS is what it would look luke.
Thanks goodness for spell and grammer check, huh?

halloween pics

here are three of our halloween pictures. Barrett was Harry Potter, Logan was a Dragon Ninja Lady, Cooper was Mitchie from Camp Rock, and Parker picked a Ninja (yeah I know that was not in the list but it is what he picked!) The first picture is after trick or treating before bed. Pile up on the chair!
