not a duggar kind of day.

The girls are yelling.
crying.
fighting.
spending some quality time it the naughty chair.
wreaking havoc.
making my blood pressure soar.
 
breathe.
chillax.
it is almost bedtime.

because I really love them.
even on nights like this.
i was away this weekend on a women's retreat.
it was fun to come home.
to appreciate the noise, the mess, the hugs, the love.

we stayed in a charming vintage room.
if you say "charming vintage" it sounds nicer than "creepy, stinky and drafty".
you might think that perhaps it had two closets, right?
nope.
wait for it.
a shower.
in a closet. 
with no light.
seriously.
but tonight I would love that claustrophobic shower.
I would enter the darkness, turn the water to boiling and shut the door.
bye bye.
mama needs a break.

  1. Oh, you could only be at CC Conf Center in Murietta...

    Try going to college there, they cram 6 girls into a dorm room about that size!

  2. So sorry. We had a day like that today, too. Those Duggars are not for real . . . no way.

  3. Sweet shower/closet. One of the ladies I work with says that when she needs time alone from her kids, she goes in the bathroom and locks the door for a few minutes. Not that I endorse that or anything :)

  4. don't we all have days like that? I call that time of day the power hour... everyone is tired and cranky before bedtime.
    I love your blog... I've been reading it for awhile, and just started one of my own. You are so inspiring! Thank you so much...

    Hope today is better!

  6. EEEK! I actually squealed out loud when I saw the shower. That's pretty bad. Hope you had a nice weekend away.

  7. no light? shower closet, hmm, it's a bit weird, but when you saw it you had to know right away it was blog worthy. everything has a different perspective now, as it can be blog worthy.

    when i need time alone i hide in my closet and eat chocolate. i've needed a lot of time alone lately, it's starting to show.

  8. it's always the best to get away but the hardest to come home! it's always a shock and the kids are awful. ALWAYS!

    who in the world would put a door on a shower? why would that EVER be a good idea? EVER!
    so weird.

    i wish i was at a women's retreat right now.....
