What a Week!

We had a lovely fourth of July, with the hubby being off from work for 5 days. Upon returning, some of the kids promptly came down with a cold. Then three of them showed up crusty eyed one morning. Yep, it's pink eye! Right now we have it contained to three of them and everyone's hands will soon be raw from all the hand washing I am making them do! Be back tomorrow with pictures from our trip, a report on my mom's day out, a new shirt and some new-to-me shoes!!!! I myself, am in the middle of a Servant Tantrum. It looks something like this:

There are cures for this state of being:
*coffee with a friend
*a good old fashioned cry
*a long shower
*a foot massage
*mindless, fun movie
*extra time in the Word with journal writing
*dancing and singing loudly while wearing iPod around house

These are just a few of my favorites. I have already stolen a few moments with my journal while laying down with a sick child tonight. I wrote TWO whole pages!!! I think I will be hitting my husband up for a foot rub and a mindless movie when he gets home.What do you do to tame the Servant Tantrum?

  1. Eva,
    By "servant tantrum" do you mean when you are tired of serving and thus throw a tantrum? I LOVE the pic of you, by the's great to see you even if it is while you're throwing a servant tantrum!
    I think the way I tame a servant tantrum (if it is according to the above definition) is by definitely re-grouping with the Lord and allowing Him to remind me of the blessings I have and that raising them is not easy and I shouldn't expect it to be so. (unfortunately this usually doesn't happen until a couple hours AFTER the tantrum has taken place!) I love your blog sister and I thank you for your humor, honesty and home-made goodies!
