Don't mind me. This is going to be my forum for whining!
I am dead dog tired. Bone tired. Hair falling out tired. (Yes, my hair IS actually falling out)
Today I got up
Started load of laundry
Made kids breakfast
Cleaned up breakfast
Helped dh get up
Dressed & cleaned up kids
Made dh breakfast & brought to him
Cleaned up again
Made dd unload her sheets and make bed
Prodded children till they finally picked up bedrooms
Mopped jelly off floor
Out of milk...ran to store
Made kids lunch, made dh lunch
Cleaned up lunch mess
Wolfed a quick sandwich
Drained giant blow up pool
Cleaned up yard toys with help of kids (sort of)
Mowed entire lawn
Showered off lawn grass and dust
Ran to store to get lemonade stand supplies
Shopped for the end of Carson's b/d presents
Came home and baked cookies and simultaneously cooked dinner
Helped set up stand
Fed kids dinner
Fed dh dinner
Mess is STILL in the kitchen. GRRR.
Dh is napping.
Catching some internet time.
I do not know how long I can keep this up. Today was probably less work than some of the previous days. In addition to my list I have spent the day fetching and picking up things for dh that he can not reach, and listening to him bark orders at the kids from the reclining chair. I just want to yell SHUT UP at him, he can't make them behave from the chair, and I don't want to listen to him too!
I feel really petty and disgusted at myself for being resentful of him, but I am NOT cut out for being a nurse, I can tell you that.
I am so tired I cannot sleep at night. I am also having to sleep in Carson's room so dh can rest without the bed moving and Carson is keeping me awake half the night with his tossing around. THEN the cat wakes me up at five AM.
Neighbor just knocks on the door and wants me to watch her dd who has been hanging around outside for HOURS. Why can't I just say no?
Off to do some more chores!
