It's all in your perspective

When you think of crab apples perhaps this is what comes to mind:

Or maybe it's this:

Well I'm typing this on Sunday night and I'm here to tell you that today when I think of crab apples- I think of this:

and also this:


Did anyone see a black cloud hanging over my house today?? Mark and I were about ready to pull our hair out. They were both sooooo crabby. That Russian temper was really blazing today.

There's not even a good excuse- it's not like they got to bed late or anything and it was both of them. There wasn't anything they could agree on- everything turned into an argument. It got to the point that I banned each of them from the other's room and they are not to play with anything that isn't theirs.

It is now 7:00 and they are both in bed for the night and I'm breathing a sigh of relief. I'm appreciating my dog more and more!

Must be something in the air because one of my russians has been so crabby too the last week. It not the oldest one eithe. Ugh.

That's really funny... well not exactly funny...

Brenda was just talking about how different countries seem to have bad weeks... sometimes with each other. "This week the Russians were having a bad week, last week the Chinese, sometime the Americans get their hands in it too"! :) I told her it's like her own World War over there!

Whenever I was having a hard day with Logan when he was little, my dad always told me "This too shall pass". He was so right because now I wonder how he got to be 16 so fast!

Diane is right - They do all have their bad days, but they go by so quickly (although it doesn't seem so at the time). At least there is school today!

sorry, I hate those days!!

Thanks for the biscuit tip, I'll have to try it :)

They're still cute, even if they're crabby! :)

I don't think it was a "sister" day. My 2 oldest where at each other way more than normal before bed last night. It was getting a bit ridiculous.
It's a new day.
