|It only looks like he's helping|
We have lots of fun and hopefully the boys are learning some things as well. But I have no time to fix up the house, read a book, take a class, drink ice tea, etc. Those are all things I did in the summers before becoming a single mom to two very active boys. Add an elderly three-legged dog to the mix, one who requires me to rise at 5:20 am EVERY morning, and I'm beyond exhausted. Really. I haven't slept more than 6 hours in one night for approximately five years.
All this is to preface the fact that I can't form a readable blog post right now. Words are all jumbled in my head. Go figure. So I'm going to share this blog post by Scary Mommy instead. Everything on her list is true; I'll wait while you check it out (wake me if I'm snoring at the keyboard).
I wish I would have thought to write a list like that but it would have required concentration and memory. Two things I'm not sure I'll ever recover the way things are going around here.
*except for the next 4 days; take my word for it, never sign up for a summer work project in January. That's just mid-winter hubris.
