I know what I want for my birthday next month. I want to check into a hotel and order room service and not be a mother for a day. The kids have been at each other's throats since DD came home from school. DD was in a bad mood because of that one crazy teacher she has so she started it. Then in response DS started provoking her on purpose.

Supposedly they were never speaking to each other again. One hour later they're acting like nothing ever happened, but I'm still tense. And irritated. *sighs* Motherhood, it ain't for sissies.

I spent about 2 hours today doing research on aquaponics systems. It is something I'd like to get into in the future. Not so much for the fish, more for the vegetables, but the fish would be a nice by-product. They can be expensive, but there are some DIY systems that can be cobbled together for far less money. Either I need to start saving or I need to figure out what DH is capable of putting together. Or willing to put together.

There are some that are as simple as a small fishtank, a grow bed, and a pump, filter, and bucket. That would probably be a good place to start.

    ((Hugs)) from one mother to another. It seems even tougher when the father's are away, too!

    Sometimes the father is like an additional child and they all provoke eachother. Wink A quiet hotel room sounds lovely.

    CCF--Yeah it can be.

    LF--DH is generally pretty good about that, but on occasion... I just want to have one day to myself, but it's not going to happen. Oh, well, feeling much better today. Both kids woke up in good moods. Amazing what that does for my mood.

    I was mostly meaning MY husband (lol), but I think it is fair to say MOST men can act that way sometimes.. Big Grin Glad things are better now.
