That's right. I am growing whiskers.
Do you ever have one of those days where you may as well be the hamster on the wheel. Ever so endlessly, go round and round? Gosh, I hope you do (sorry) because then I am not so alone in this. As a full time Mom I sometimes miss the days I went off to work. At least then, while I may have been totally frustrated and miserable because I want'ed to be with my kids, I would have at least helped a student, intervened in a crisis situation, just been a stellar social worker. (not saying I want to go back....that is another post).
Yesterday was just one of those unavoidable days where you feel like you got absolutely nothing accomplished. It didn't help that there were 2 sick kids home and major puke clean-up. Thank you Lord for my wet vac....if you don't have one, why not? They are a god-send. Anyway, I felt frustrated by the pillows on the floor, blankets strewn here and there, extra laundry from pukers, Bob peed in the house because he hates the cold ( welcome to winter for Bob the Bulldog)....I could go on.
So, I feel the compulsion to put "out there" what I accomplished. Just for myself if nothing else. And perhaps it will keep me from growing whiskers if I validate myself!
Took good care of little pukers.
Pick up and dropped off Jack from school...he remained well and even got a cat nap in on the couch- which is more his accomplishment. Filled the "L" letter box for tomorrow.
Worked on a puzzle with the boys. Read to Tessa. Read to Jack. Made a pot roast in my crock put (how I love thee). Made cookies (from a tub) and ate too much dough.
Disinfected many, many surfaces.
After the kids were in bed I did escape to the art studio and started Margo's painting for her yoga studio "Vessel Yoga". I am pretty geeked up about it...it is going to be A W E S O M E. Maybe I will be able to accomplish that tomorrow.
Notice got dressed is not on my list. Why bother. I looked like hell...or perhaps a hamster- all. day.
There was a long hot shower at the end of the day....and then we watched Dexter. Oh yeah- that show is crazy good.
I think I had better go "pluck" some whiskers and hope for a better day today.
