Exhausted and a Bit Frustrated.....

....exhausted because it's a typical day here at the Zoo. Typical used to be just five extra kids. Six on the heavy days. With Dante's little sister here, it's six extra, seven on the heavy days. And i totally forgot how much work a newborn was! It's been over a year since keeping a newborn, so I'm way out of practice. I did manage to get five ounces of mom's milk into her today, but I'm trying not to tempt fate by patting myself on the back too much. It's noteworthy, though, eh? ;)

....and I'm frustrated because my eighteen year-old part-time girl quit yesterday, and said that she could work this week, but is trying to skive off early.... urgh. I'm trying not to be frustrated, but she's let me down at the most crucial times...such as the day I shit my brains out and this week when I'm getting all my kids back. *ggrrrrr* oh, well...could be worse, eh??

....nothing much else is happening here lately. Aside from the odd overdue library book or cleaning the house, which I've no doubt are of any excitement to you. The lady bits problems are returning, but I won't gross you out with the details of that, either. And I'm sure you would rather not hear of my ponderings on whether to increase the looney meds or stay on the lower dose. lmfao...I shall not go into further details on any of these.

....Going to go back to my daycare now. Which has afforded me time only to take a dump today....and even that didn't go well. LOOOOOVVVVEEERRRRLLLYYY!!!! *imitates Katie by banging head on desk*

Oh my. I don't know what to say. I was going to tell you NOah's attitude and general ass hole qualities are really wearingon me today. But at least hewas in school most of the day until he came home and fought about not having his way on anything.

I don't know how you do it. I would have my doctor increase my meds to the limit..(LOL)

I think you can find another girl...I am crossing my fingers for you.

Oh my goodness. I think about you all the time, whenever I am crazy enough to let the thought of possibly staying home and have a couple of kids in for daycare at mY house dangle in my brain. I think you are wonderful.

I know you are having a bad day if you haven't updates your site at least once or twice. As for me, I finally have a minute to scrapbook and I am out of tape runner. Damnit! I don't feel like running to Michaels to get a refill. I guess I'll be headed there tomorow, like it or not. I need a Creative Memories lady in my neighborhood so I can keep that refilled.
