I left my patience in the top drawer today

Today I left my patience in the top drawer. You know the days when every little thing just sets you off. First of all, I got up early...even did my before bed routine...But, got to work late. I made it through my day. I go to pick DD5 from school, she proceeds to hide behind a bush and "pants" her little sister. (The sister begs everyday to get out and visit with DD5's teacher and play a little while with the kids.) Not only did she "pants" her, she did it in from of another little boy in her class! AHHHHGH!!!! Then DD5 shows me the brand new holes in both knees of her almost new pants. Pants that were not even hand me downs. I actually bought them brand new (on sale..but new!) This is the 8 or 9th pair of jeans she has busted the knees out of! So, I ask....How do I get her to stop"? We get home and I make them both sit on their beds. DD3 fell asleep...so do we think she is going to go to sleep tonight? Not likely. : ( The house needs cleaning, again. The laundry needs doing, again. Dinner needs making, again. Do we see the grumpiness creeping out?????? Calgon take me away...at least for a little while. When I get back I promise to get my patience out of the top drawer.

Has your patience returned? Or have you taken it out of the top drawer, I should say. I think I have left my positive attitude somewhere, maybe I'll go check my top drawer.

As for my patience...I got it back today ;)
