I am lagging behind and need to catch up quick before things fall apart so much that the thought of putting it all back together exhaust me all over again. One of the drawbacks of being a single mother is there are no such things as "sick days" no one will pick up you slack, no one will help you and get the dishes done, or maybe throw in a load of laundry....maybe pick up a piece of paper that falls onto the floor " Oh no, that is asking way too much". Nope all of that stuff will wait for me to be better, and pile up.
My dishes are so out of hand, that one's child would have to wash one's own fork, spoon, ect. and what does one's child say..."mom, I need a spoon and there are none" and mom responds "wash one" child says "whatcha talkin about mom, what is this washing you are speaking of?". Insanity!!! But they did let me sleep for the most part. Now I am up and shit needs to get done. And I have come to the conclusion that I am a shitty dictator.
Not only have I been down, but one by one each child has ran into a little tummy virus; so I have been trying my best to tend to their needs, all and all it has been a long week, and I am hoping next will be better.
