It is a PD Day today, so my 8 yo is home from school.
I am going through some Big Stuff--see member notes or personal blog, but trust me, tis big. This big stuff means that I'm emotionally focussed on ME right now, not whatever random demands the kids are making. And I don't WANT to play playdoh, colour, read a book, whatever. I want to navel gaze.
The battle with iVillage continues, and my response it to produce an excellent product elsewhere--my personal blog plus a few outside articles.
My house is a mess. Seriously, it would make FEMA cry. It needs to be cleaned because there is a babysitter coming tonight so that I can deal with some of the Rilly Big Stuff. The 8 yo is NOT only not contibuting to this process, she is actively inhibiting it.
I feel like I have NO headspace today, on a day where I need all the room for me. It's driving me mad!
