OUCH! I was bit by a brown recluse about 11 years ago...it looked a lot like that, but worse. I'm sorry, that totally bites. Pun intended

Like since I don't have the time and free hands to fold all this d@mn laundry, I have to pick through baskets looking for matching socks for my kids. And since I don't have the time and free hands to fold my diapers and get them put away (they're clean!) I grab a sposie and then we have a poop blowout and have to change the baby before we can get in the car to take the kids to school, and meanwhile the toddler has taken OFF her hat and gloves, and so on and so forth. I multitask every single minute of the day. I swear, if I have to go to the bathroom I am looking for something to take with me so that won't be wasted time. My house is complete and total chaos, my office paperwork is backed up, I'm paying the mortgage late. I am heading for a nervous breakdown, or a physical one, really soon if I don't watch out.
And my mother, bless her, is taking my brother to the Bahamas for a week for Christmas. Because they're very stressed and they need to sit down for a week. (he just moved in with her and is, as far as I know, not employed.)
Well I have squandered another half hour. But I'm nursing the baby at the same time, so it's not like I could have been folding laundry anyway.
man when it rains it pours huh?
: Your toddler and mine sound strikingly similar...are you sure yours isn't a little boy named Seth??
I feel like my life is in an uproar too. I've been knitting every spare second I have lately (not just for enjoyment, I'm trying to raise some Christmas $$), so my small little apartment is a disaster area. I have clean clothes, just in baskets or strewn about all over the living room...I try to fold them..it just doesn't happen.
it can't last forever, right???
Maria - I'm going to read your birthstory when I have a few minutes and not a squirmy 2 year old on my lap wanting me to get done so he can play his computer game.
Ok, here's my question today...Seth has a sore on his foreskin. It's right on the tip and is actually bloody today. I've been putting neosporin and lansinoh on it for a while, should I take him to the doc? It's actually worse today than it has been at all. Any and all advice is welcome and needed.
Ok, I better go before the locals go wild.
Oh yeah, JJoy - sorry about Mattie! I hope she gets feeling better fast! I'm going to the PO on Saturday, I have to mail some hats I am making. Is it ok if I wait until then to send your diaper bag??
