but improving. now my head is full of cotton balls instead of mashed potatoes (which were an improvement over cement, remember). i need a nap, but i'm going to work instead. then i can sleep when the kids get home - why pay attention to THEM? (seriously, i've got Major Mommy Guilt over how little attention they've gotten in recent months. they'll get still less after Thumper climbs out!)
that is all.
