Monday, Monday

What a beautiful day! I woke up to blue sky and birds singing...and a pulled back muscle! So, instead of being able to spend the day taking the kids to the park, I am sitting in the only comfortable position I can find. I cannot lift anything, it hurts to move, and if I need to walk I have to be hunched over.

How am I managing this with three kids at home? Well, Sophia is super helpful. She helped dress Vibiana and herself - she did o.k.with Vibiana, but Sophia is wearing a nice skirt and mismatched knee socks. Sebastian insisted on picking out his own clothes, which is why he is wearing Darian's shirt and Sophia's shorts. No one got their hair combed, teeth brushed or face washed. I set up the diaper changing station on the hearth of the fireplace (since I can't lift anyone onto the actual changing table) so at least their butts are clean.

While I sit here "relaxing", the dishes are piling up, the laundry is multiplying and I won't even mention the state of my living room. Oh well. At least I get to spend the day with my feet up!

Briana, I'm sorry to hear you are in such pain! Please, next time call me. I will come and help out. I'm by your neck of the woods anyway.
