Today I:

– Cried when dog escaped his crate. Again.

– Asked kids to clean living room.

⁃ Listened to each child deny ownership of every single item in living room.

⁃ Refereed every possible combination of three kids fighting.

– Ignored every possible combination of three kids fighting.

– Attempted to clean dog puke out of the couch.

– Attempted to explain to three kids why everyone couldn’t get their way.

– Failed to explain to three kids why everyone couldn’t get their way.

⁃ Denied a child a walk because it was cold, and snowing, and two siblings cried as an answer in the negative.

⁃ Spent another day without WiFi because dog ate the cables.

⁃ Went to the store just to get out of the house.

⁃ Went to the store again to buy a DVD because WiFi still dead and cannot make it without screen time.

⁃ Understood why people buying DVDs buy them. Baffled me last week.

⁃ Cursed copiously.

⁃ Outlined lots of punishments.

⁃ Rescinded all of them.

⁃ Cried inwardly. A lot.

⁃ Sat through a kids’ movie and got a little closer to psychotic mom.

⁃ Reported an extremely strong smell of gas to the gas company. Only productive act of the day.

⁃ Tried to read while shitty kids’ movie played.

⁃ Sat beside child whose feet smelled like The Bears locker room after a game in 100F.

⁃ Watched said child pick in between toes.

⁃ Got to marvel at the differences in the odors of three other humans and a dog.

⁃ Smelly Foot snuggled into me.

⁃ All worth while.

Roll on tomorrow…
