Holy crap, I'm tired!
This week off from work has definitely NOT been a vacation so far. Between 3-4 times waking up during the night for the puppy crying to go outside (don't worry, Big D has been on night patrol!) and repeatedly puppy training (bazillions of outdoor visits, feedings 3x a day, occasional doggy whining and cleaning the carpet), food shopping for Thanksgiving, and endless amounts of baking (so far I've made a pumpkin pie, a cheesecake--still in the oven as I type this--and peanut butter blossom cookies)...I. AM. EXHAUSTED.
How do you Mommy's do it? In no way am I saying raising a puppy is like raising child nor am I comjparing your child to a dog, heh heh, but I'm just saying the demands must have similar moments. I give you all oodles of credit for running your household while being busy, hands-on Mommies!
I'll be lucky if my house is cleaned by Thanksgiving.
