The intensity and volume of the snow has really gotten to me, with all this recovering from surgery and being treated like and incapable baby, I don't know how much I can handle. My home is in a shambles, because my little piggies are taking full advantage of the fact that my mobility is somewhat limited. My husband has been an absolute SAINT throughout this whole ordeal, not many would have been working full time from home, bussing kids back and forth from school AND helping my mom get the house into shape twice a week, the man is not Vasili they should nickname him Heracles.
All this has gotten me super stressed. Tuesday, we took out my stitches and he had to go back to his physical workplace before they decided to fire him. His boss has this thing about people working remotely, even though the studies have shown that flexible hours increase one's productivity (what does corporate America care?). Anyhow, the house has gone back to the same thing, I slipped and nearly twisted my bad knee because my kids just REFUSE to not put away things like their shoes, which are stored in plastic bins in the large coat closet, and I slipped and fell on my good knee yesterday because there were colored pencils I did not see strewn all over my ADHD child's bedroom floor.
This morning she refused to take her meds, spat them out TWICE, so I made her pay me for them out of her mad money to learn that all things have value. I have a migraine that won'y quit because I haven't slept, and allI can do is stare at the sweet sweet peanut butter cups in the cupboard that the mister bought from the big box store last month.
