Some days, we all are living out of laundry baskets and the dryer....don't be so hard on yourself. You're doing a good job in a tough situation.


And as you and Lori know well...MOST days we're living out of the dishwasher and the dryer at the Ero homestead! And according to my ops research geek of a husband, that is also known as "effort optimization." Slacker moms unite!
Love from us to you and keep an eye on your mailbox.


Why go for the "low dose"?
And cut yourself some slack - we live out of laundry baskets and the dishwasher on a regular basis (and almost never make the beds!).
Sending hugs and love :)


Christine, You rock. You really do. And my slacker mom self lets Robin watch tv every night and fall asleep in my bed and I haven't cooked a real meal for my husband since he got home Saturday (I could go on). I agree with the antidepressants...counseling does wonders for me when I'm in a ucky place. Keep plugging along, girl.


So I'm not getting a french silk pie?! You are rocking it, Christine. Like you always do/will.


i confess that i just cut off all of my hair into a pixie and spent way too much money on clothes i dont really need. and ive only been able to eat cereal for the past 10 meals. and it only made me feel a little better. but your email the past few days has made an incredible difference. thanks for doing all that you do, you do it well.


Well, at least your laundry makes it into the laundry basket. We have piles in the basement. I sort of think it's awesome--pull the laundry out of the dryer, throw it in a pile...laundry done.

Also, I think you should leave work a little early some day this week and get thee a pedicure/manicure. It will make you feel like a brand new woman--I am given to understand, not being able to engage in such things myself right now, allow me to live vicariously through you.
