Three cheers - they're gone!

Whoot!

Can you see the happy dance from here?

Terrible, I know.

Yesterday, Joe hit the nail on the head... "Those little ones are more than a full-time job, and taking breaks is healthy, even if they are back to back."

Um. Yea.

And unlike a job I don't have paid vacation, benefits, or sick leave. Unlike I job, I can't "leave it at work." I am at work. All day, every day. 24/7.

Do I sound like I feel sorry for myself? Not in the slightest. It's just damn hard.

And as of October 4th, it will be Four Years.

Four.

Damn.

Tried to work on Tree's quilt yesterday. Started quilting and didn't like it so I ripped it out. Started a second time - still don't like it. Can't decide if I should rip it out again, or if that would be obsessive compulsive...

Today's project, the Big Girl's room. She's a bit of a hoarder and packrat. Just like her mother. For the most part, we can keep it to a minimum, but it's been awhile since we've cleared it out. Anyone up for before and after pictures, assuming we get our other computer up and running?
