Today our household is definitely a vale of tears. Very much in the spirit of Tisha B'Av! I just stepped away so I don't lose it in the screaming. Even the cats are fighting outside the front door.

Anyone else??????

Yes. A feverish needy baby is keeping me from cooking and drinking.... And there's general feeling of impending doom.

With me, it's anger rather. I got home in a bad mood because today I was informed that our latest ivf cycle had flopped (still got frozen ones though) and I'm still full of mood-swinging hormones from the cycle. I am also panicking because I have to work tomorrow and I find that very hard while fasting. Then little ds triggered me and I exploded at him and at dh like a bomb and a package of grapes got smashed while trying to rip it by force from ds. Wish I had had better self control... bad way to start Tisha B'Av, amid screams, tears and mashed grapes.

Sending you hugs from here. That sounds so difficult.

May Hashem give you and your family patience and kindness throughout the rest of the day.

My four year old has had two hugh meltdowns already today. One was because the wasabi "made his mouth burny" after I told him that he wouldn't like it.
Hoping today, and tomorrow starts getting easier
