Aunt Flo is in town and all I wanna do is lie down and curl up into a ball and go to sleep. Never mind I have 4 littles to take care of. Never mind one of them is screaming his/her head off and it sounds like I have a herd of elephants thundering up and down the hall.
At this point of Aunt Flo's visit, which is day 4, I am physically exhausted from the constant barrage of back pain, cramping, and blood loss. Add to that the seemingly never-ending yelling and bickering between the kids and Peter's grating screaming and I am mentally exhausted from playing referee. I am ready for menopause, please.
If it weren't so cold and the ground was not coated in slippery ice, I'd send the kids outside to scream all they want. How can I be an effective Mama when I am yelling at the kids to stop yelling?
I had library movies due today. After Andrew got back from an appointment, I went out to drop them off and make a few stops. I locked the keys in the car and had a couple dizzy spells from skipping lunch and not fueling my body while Aunt Flo is visiting. Andrew rescued me. Lucky for me he was off today and not at work. I should have stayed in bed this morning.
I think dinner will be one of those quickie frozen meals I got so cheaply last week. Time to also break out one of the new DVD movies we keep on hand to surprise the kids. Mama needs to spend some quality time with the bed.
