Stress, TV, and Family Pics

The last few days I have felt like an absolute failure as a mother. I've lost my patience way too quickly, yelled way too much, sworn way too loudly (and too much), and have just had horns and a tail. 

The thing I wish the most that I could change about myself is how much I freak out when I'm stressed out or feeling depressed or upset. It gets ugly. I know it gets ugly. And try as I might, I haven't found a way to control it that isn't doctor prescribed. I've felt particularly out of control the last week as I've been stressed out about getting everything packed and ready for the big move. I didn't think it was that stressful. I don't sit and think, "Gosh packing and moving is really wearing me down!" But apparently it is, because I've lost my crap more times than should be acceptable. 

Does anyone have any remedies for controlling your emotions? I feel like the Hulk... Once the anger builds there's no stopping it. And I smash like the Hulk. Maybe it's time to consider a medical option again, but before I do, I want to hear more home remedies or tricks that have worked for you. Any ideas?? My family and I would really appreciate a Mommy who isn't evil over half the day. 

Ok heavy stuff over. I finally caught up on the Bachelorette last night. 
She made the right choice. I usually poke fun at these relationships but I actually hope these guys make it. They're really cute together and seem genuinely happy. And I totally plan on watching Bachelor in Paradise on Sunday. Anyone else? 

And, So You Think You Can Dance has rocked the house this season, too! My front runner: JaJa
She's flipping amazing. There's some incredible talent on both teams this season. However... Isn't it supposed to be a family show? 
Like... For real?! The dance was super nasty and suggestive as well. Kennedy loves to watch this show with me and I had to cover her eyes. It really disappointed me. 

Alright, now for the real reason you're all here: more family pics. I'll share a few of my faves. 

I love them! I am one blessed individual.

Such adorable pictures! Not sure I have a home remedy but I sometimes have to lock myself somewhere and let it rip and emerge when I'm calm again. Key is recognizing it before it explodes. Good luck!!
