two hours of a baby screaming with colic.
6 hours with a reluctant homeschooler with ADD.
a visiting babysitter (of the colicky baby) who can't understand a word of english.
a two-year-old and a 5-year-old who alternated between dressing each other in every item of clothing in the house and playing with every single toy in the house.
teaching my helper, (limited english) to mix and bake a batch of home-made bread.
doing hot/cold packs on my surgical wound every 4 hours.
catching up with my husband who's been gone for a week on all his traveling news and my home news.
sigh. i'm tired. meals, baths, snacks, reading done. teeth brushed. pull-ups on for night. house is a mess. puke spots, pee spots, spilled food spots everywhere.
i'm about done. getting too old for this.
