Surviving One of THOSE Days

Mary is another, albeit more experienced, mother of 10 who blogs at Owl Haven. She recently posted  5 Tips for Surviving a Difficult Day.    (For #4 I choose to tackle a project or move furniture rather than cook 🙂  )

This post was an encouraging reminder to me and I recommend it for any of you who’ve ever had one of THOSE days.

Yes, I did this to my husband's hair!

God is good, even during THOSE days!

    I can not believe you ran to get the camera while your poor child is about to follow the sewer route! Was that snarky enough? I haven’t been very snarky in a while so I thought I would be today! 🙂 Oh and I would be single again if I did that to my hubby’s head…oh well.

    I think that hair cut demonstrates the long-suffering-ness of love.

    Glad to see you back in your old form of snarkiness.

    Loved this list! Although I agree, I would rather move furniture any day of the week. Much to hubby’s dismay. Fortunately my boys are getting big enough to be my brawny furniture movers sometimes. 🙂

    My husband always says that the difference between a bad haircut and a good haircut is 2 weeks :). Just cut all the rest REALLY short like that on the sides and back and you’ll be okay! (You probably already did that, but that’s the best fix that I know of).

    Here’s what I do on the difficult days.
