This morning I got up and went to run some errands. I had a large area rug in our living room (the family room, not the formal) that is the same color as our rug. I put the there last year because there were too many stains on our cream colored carpet that wouldn't come up. Well, yesterday, Michael spilled an entire coke (mine) onto the rug and ruined it. Wouldn't come out without a large brown stain. First place I went this morning was Garden Ridge and I found a GREAT room-sized oriental rug on sale. It is a light cream base, with brown (the color of our couch and the wood in the room), green (umm, we have a ficus?), and maroon/rust (our accent color for pillows, candles, throws, etc.). Scott, who NEVER reacts, came down and saw it in the room and said it looked great! I also picked up some booster seats for the boys when they ride in my mom's car, some groceries, a couple of floats for the kids in the pool, a test kit for the pool water, and other odds and ends.
I tried swimming with the boys after I got back, but they are in some seriously annoying mood today. They are fighting/wrestling, throwing things, yelling, ignoring me, spilling things and being a general pain in the butt. My patience with them has been so short because I had reached my breaking point. Thankfully, bedtime is only 30 minutes away. I'm glad these days are few and far between. I'm funnelling my anger and frustration into chores - doing lots of laundry, dishes, general cleaning up.
