Splitting My Head Open.



I have had a headache for almost two straight weeks. Its not my sinuses, its not caffeine, its not eye strain.

It is the three completely insane women I live with.

My youngest, Sadie, is a screamer. Top of her lungs, ear piercing, mind numbing screaming. It comes with no warning. More juice, a different TV channel. It doesn't matter. It doesn't get her what she wants, but I don't think she has figured that out yet.

My oldest, Ella, now thinks she must scream louder than Sadie to be heard. She has taken to screaming at the slightest thing. Apparently she hasn't noticed it isn't getting her what she wants either.

My wife has had enough. She is at the end of her rope and...has taken to screaming to keep the screamers in line.

Where does that leave me? Hiding under a table with cotton stuffed in my ears.

It is not working.

As a man with two daughters, I feel your pain. Hell, my youngest doesn't even speak yet and I still feel your pain. Isn't it nice to know that you're not alone.

On a completely different note, I thought about you today because of my blog.

By pure happenstance, I drove right past it yesterday. I though of him. I looked at the date. I had to stop.
