Hangover Monday

No I am not actually hungover.  But last night PVT and I felt like we had been run over eight times by a Hummer Limo:  dealing with 5 kids all weekend and their various soccer games, birthday parties, and activities is enough to make even a seasoned marathoner want to roll up in the fetal position and whimper for a while.

Well, that's what I'm telling myself, anyway.  It is also possible we are just getting OLD.

And just now Sylvie spent the two hours after her nap wailing inconsolably and clinging to me.  I couldn't figure out what was wrong, so I gave her Tylenol - now she is happier.  But if it's what I suspect - ear infection NUMBER 6 - I may need to go hide under my bed for awhile.

Luckily this email came just in time: 

Hooray!  A bunch of beauty samples that will de-crease my crow's feet, shrink my pores, glossify my hair and probably shrink my poochy stomach to boot (OK, OK, I haven't read the fine print yet).

Even the merest glimmer of hope is enough some days.
