Ooh, not fun at all with the dog. Sorry to hear!

Sounds like your kids were just being normal kids...sometimes annoying, but not obnoxious. Like you said, still more well-behaved than 95% of the kids around them. And, you were being a normal human Mom...we all say things in exasperation sometimes that we don't really mean.

I think I said something in exasperation to a neighbor the other day, and it has bothered me all weekend. If it makes any difference, it was that time of month for me too. But, that normally doesn't affect me like that. I don't like conflict or hard feelings. Now I'm almost scared to say hi or chit-chat with her now like I usually do, for fear the subject will come up again and I'll lose my temper again...or for fear she's still mad at me.
