One of "THOSE" weekends!

I'm sure every mother out there would agree that motherhood brings such joy and happy moments...kids are just wonderful, right? right??
 I also think most mothers would agree with me when I say that some days are just NUTS!..
Well...this weekend was one of "THOSE" weekends where I wanted to run away.. my kids were just mean and wild and I felt like such a failure for not having enough patience to deal with their craziness!
For the first time in years I felt like I was possessed with some "evil" presence.. I wanted to yell, break things, punch something.. it was awful...
I told the kids I would give all their toys away and just piled them up by the door.. they started crying and whining like never before and kept begging me to "forgive them".. I seriously didn't know what to do...
Then I started to think about how much worse it could be...and how I could have "real" problems without solutions..and I calmed down.. a little bit...and the kids calmed down too.. I think that helped a lot..
...and then I thought of blogging about it and getting it off my chest... but then I also thought about how complaining about my kids doesn't necessarily fit into a blog called "Stories of a Happy Mom".. and then I said "heck, I need to post real stories"..so here I am rambling about it.. and realizing that things aren't always perfect... and that it's ok to accept that...
So, I'm hoping some other moms can relate to this post in some sort of way and know that we all go through "those" days where everything seems to be upside down...
Please tell me you've had days like these...?!?!?!?!?
