Last week Jack was on spring break.
Five solid days of listening to the commotion (fighting) of the children.
Then Friday and Saturday Dave spent two solid days on the roof repairing it. Two solid days of 24 hour childcare for me.
I do nothing but cook and clean and referee and work my small business right now. My stupid arthritis in my foot is hurting from doing too much. I haven't done a single creative thing in weeks. I cannot afford a baby sitter. I haven't even read a book! I don't even have cable anymore so I can just sit and veg out with Tim Gunn.
And then this morning. This morning! My two smaller children took turns screaming and crying and having one INSANELY intense tantrum after another. For hours.
Sammi never naps anymore but I have forced her into her room so I can regroup. (Jack always used to have quiet time in his room so I could refocus. Sammi refuses to stay in there but I have to figure out something. I cannot go on like this much longer without a moment where I can think! I cannot solve a single one of their problems without some regrouping time.)
I've picked up a few things for the shop that I am on the fence about selling:
I have been selling everything I pick up and I simply cannot decide what to do with these...
Alright I am off to regroup for a minute.
