For some reason we've been grumpy lately. The boys and I just can't get over this sickness entirely. Isaak's still a snot bucket, Mica has a cough and I'm just stuffy.

On Friday I got a fever. I felt like I was in a daze.

Yesterday I was feeling a bit better, so we went on mini errands. It's the only time of the week I can go on errands. So we went. It seems like little stores such as the battery store the boys act up in more than bigger stores like Costco. I don't know if it has anything to do with the amount of people in them (stimulus), or the fact that Costco has samples to keep them occupied? They just seem crazy in little stores.

I was getting a battery replaced in my car key and the boys found the flashlights on the front counter. All the sudden it was like a game of laser tag in there. They are not usually like that. They haven't been for a long time anyhow! I thought we were over this bad store behavior business!

Another thing, if I grab Isaak at all, anywhere he starts crying, "You hurt my arm!" He had Nursemaid's Elbow awhile back. Now he uses that as an excuse.

Today I went to Walgreens for 2 things. I talked to them about good store behavior before we went in. Isaak was an animal. It's like a light switch went on inside him to act crazy! I kept holding his face, looking him in the eyes and saying, "This is not good store behavior. You need to use your inside voice, calm down and check yourself!" Then Mica was acting out. I just wanted to go back to one of the first commercials I remember and say, "Calgon take me away!"

We went home and Isaak had to lay in bed to think about his poor behavior. Mica lost his snack (Easter candy). Then I heard Mica complain that it's not fair that he didn't get his candy. He thought Isaak was the culprit. I didn't want to hear him go on at all. I said, "If I hear you complain once more you are going to your bed and read." That's where he is.

Mica's supposed to have a play date at 2. If it wasn't such a struggle to arrange his play date, I would totally cancel it.

Awww - you guys have had an exceptionally bad winter this year. It's been one thing after another for you guys, so I'd say you've earned the right to be grumpy by this point.

Maybe you should have a Calgon moment. :) I bet it'd do you good. :)

I hate those days of acting up in the stores. It's always hit or miss with Allison. I am so happy that her sister is old enough to babysit while I make a quick dash to the store. I always judge how she is acting before announcing I am going. If I get the slightest hint that she'll be a hellion, I leave without her.

Hope you're feeling much better now! My girl is usually quite good too but sometimes she'll just scream and shout to get her way on some things.. sigh.

I have those days also and I have said: "Calgon take me away!" We all have them! It is horrible to feel sick though and when I don't feel good I am cranky!
