Just Sayin'

I have spent too much time in the Mom Cave today. Ugh. They are running around me talking, crying, screaming and, basically, "WINNING"!

I've summoned Roberto. Can't help it. It's just one of those days. I somehow find myself watching my neighbor's two dogs for nine days. Younger son just CANNOT give up spewing everything he knows about Pokemon (are you kidding me??) and older son is screaming with gastritis pain. I'm done. Stick a fork in me. I've positioned the kids so that I can come into this Cave and BREATHE. Roberto gives great imaginary shoulder massages, by the way. Five minutes. That's all I plan to spend here.

I'll admit. I cried the first two.

But, I'm taking the last three to regroup and recharge. They have won the battle but will not win the war! Onward and Upward, my friends! We can do this!!

And, when the Golden Years arrive, I dream that kids will be stable, and I can be comforted by daily routines such as collecting the mail, taking my medicines, spying on the neighbors or anything else that tickles my fancy but does not fry my brain.


  1. Awwww, I wish you would call me on these days! An extra set of hands? :-/

  2. No way! usually friends come in but they don't come out!!! LOLOLOLLL!
