this time around, PMS has really got me feeling down. i don't know why. maybe the cold weather, i hate the cold. and the holidays are coming up, that's pretty depressing. and i've been homesick for quite some time, i haven't been home in four years. also, all three of the kids are going through stages (all different stages, of course, but essentially independence (from mommy and daddy)) which seems to require screaming. very grating. i'm feeling really tied down at the moment, that sucks. it sucks to want to get away from your kids just to have a quiet moment. *sigh*

this will pass, as all things do. just wish it were a bit warmer.
