I worked hard today... I really did. Not that you can tell. But you'll just have to trust me.
I did several loads of laundry... I even put most of them away in their proper places!
I went through my daughters clothes and put the stuff she's grown out of in bags to get rid of.
I cleaned my bathroom.
I vacuumed my floors. For the millionth time.
I re-filled my laundry room with all the dirty clothes from the various bedroom floors.
I fed my fussy daughter a couple hundred times.
I gave medicine to my sick 5 year old.
I gave 3 children baths.
I remembered to feed everyone... even myself.
I drank tea with my mom.
I walked to and from the elementary school 3 different times. And it is darn cold here people.
But you know what? You can't really tell I did any of that stuff. There are still crushed cheerios on my floor, dirty dishes on the counter, laundry on the floor, cat hair in my bathroom sink (doesn't everyone have cat hair in their bathroom sinks?) and it is 11 pm and my daughter is still awake.
Why is she awake still? I'm tired. I could sleep. But she is awake. I don't know why. I think that giving her Tylenol for her teething pain was a bad idea. Yes, it made her happier. But very awake.
Did you know that ALL three of my children get MORE awake when they are given Tylenol? They definitely do NOT go to sleep. Not even a little bit. It's just wrong.
I should mention that I am feeling quite good today emotionally. Which is nice. And even though it was intensely cold outside today the sun was shining beautifully and that was nice. I love it when the snow shimmers in the sunlight.
Ok. I really am tired so I think I shall try once again to convince my sweet Olivia that she is tired as well.
