venting

Sorry for the bitter edge in today's post, folks, but I need to vent a little. Here are some of the things that I did today:
1. Put away a load of laundry that has been sitting in our room for 3 days
2. Brought in a load of laundry from the dryer that had been sitting there overnight
3. Started one new load of laundry that we created yesterday, partially contributed to by Fiona who wet or pooped on her clothes, blankets, and sling three times yesterday
4. Made the bed so I wouldn't feel that everything was so disorganized
5. Finally ate breakfast
6. Went to a friend's house for a playdate and had a great time
7. Totally overate at friend's house (including on nectarine and blackberry cobbler with a buttery topping), thereby destroying my well-intentioned plan of sticking to weight watchers
8. Came home and nursed baby for the 12th time (okay, okay, I don't know if it was actually 12 times, because I'd lost count by then)
9. Told kids to play computer games while I went upstairs and tried to nap
10. Tried to get Fiona to sleep by nursing again, tried to fall asleep myself
11. Got vomited on by Fiona (and so did the bed)
12. Took a shower holding the baby (not sure how clean I got)
13. Laid down on unmade bed and fell asleep while Benji was fussing downstairs
14. Got up and welcomed a dinner from Jackie (THANK YOU!!!!!!), immediately ate 3 of the brownie bites she brought with the dinner
15. INSTEAD OF CLEANING VOMITY SHEETS, PLAYING WITH THE KIDS, OR ENCOURAGING THEM TO CLEAN UP THE HUGE MESS THEY MADE WHILE I WAS FITFULLY SLEEPING, I sat on the couch and crocheted till Chad came home
16. Put away toys, wiped table from dinner, and cleaned a little in the kitchen while holding a baby
17. Started another two loads of laundry for the sheets and bedspread
18. Wrote this blog post while nursing again

I feel ya! And I'm glad you just sat and crocheted. Sometimes that's just what you have to do!

Hope, I was glad to do service for you. I was having a not-so-great-day myself, made only worse when the brownies stuck to the pan, the meat I prepared I was told was "not nearly as good as it normally is," and the rice turned out watery. Julia Child said to never apologize for a meal, and I appreciate your graciousness in appreciating the service.
