I almost didn’t make it today

Have you ever scene the movie Office Space? There’s a scene in that movie where he describes the worst day of his life.  Below is the actual clip. 

I can really relate to this because it seems like whenever I have a bad day and think it can’t possibly get worse, I’m always proven wrong. 

Today was just a really bad day for me.  It was like pulling teeth to get anyone to do anything they were told, with the exception of Gavin.  There were several times today that I had to literally stop engaging the boys and walk out if the room.

They were driving me crazy today. 

It’s like all they can do is bicker and fight anymore.  Elliott whines like it’s his job and Emmett pushes his buttons like it’s nobody’s business. 

Lizze is not doing well and we learned today that the new psychiatrist she found won’t be able to see her due to insurance issue. Insurance issues are making it quite challenging to find a doctor that’s a fit for her situation. 

She’s been physically ill the last couple of days..and the additional load on me has been really weighing me down.

My knees are buckling under the pressure and I’m not sure how much longer I can go on. 

The last thing I needed today was to go to parent teacher conferences and not be taken seriously by some of Gavin’s teachers.  I don’t take well to being patronized and I detest condescending looks from people who have absolutely no experience with Reactive Attachment Disorder.

That said, I behaved myself.  I’ll go into the details later.

On the way home, the friggin van died and left us stranded again.  So not fun. …..

Thankfully my Dad came to the rescue and we got back up and running.  We need a new battery for the van but that’s going to have to pick a number and stand in the ever growing line of things that are waiting for me to figure out, 

It was just one thing after another, after another. 

I did manage to bake a loaf of bread with Elliott and that was fun.  However, aside from that, I’m really grateful to be able to put this day behind me.
