Tired, hungry and so much to do.

So it's now 6 days to my race and I don't care. I'm more concerned with the 4 days left before my hubby comes back from his business trip. Today went really well until dinner time. Lillian ate but Katrina cried so I had to feed her during Lillian's dinner. Lillian took advantage of this to smear yogurt EVERYWHERE. Not what I needed. Then I had to put away a lot of laundry, followed by bathing Katrina and then trying to feed her. She was not interested in it and just fussed/screamed. So I bathed Lillian, and then put her to bed. Katrina was awake again, so I brought her down with me to clean up the downstairs. All she did was SCREAM. I barely got the toys picked up and dishes washed before I thought I would lose my mind. And again she would not eat, and none of the usual make her happy things worked. Cuddling didn't cut it, baby movements got no reaction, and nosey nuzzles/neck and tummy kisses didn't even get a smirk. Finally I gave up and put her in her swing and she's quiet now.

So now it's almost 9pm and I have a stupid amount of cleaning and laundry to still take care of and tomorrow my mom comes. I love my mom and she's wonderful but she's sometimes overly critical of me so I don't know whether to be excited or dread the visit. All I know is that no matter how much I clean or work on the house it will not be enough and she will comment on it. Even though I called her and told her not to be critical of me when she comes up because it's been a long week and I don't want to deal with there is no guarantee that she won't comment on it.

So wish me luck because right now I feel like crap, and am starving but too tired to even bother to feed myself. It's going to be a long week and I already need a good cry.

    It would be totally unfair for anyone to criticize your home, mom included! They should be coming to see you and the children or don't bother coming....having said that I understand how you are feeling! I always try to have my home clean and tidy when I know someone is coming and I can often lose my cool with everyone if it isn't how I want it.

    Is baby cutting teeth? or possible feeling mommies stress level? Those are not nice times to go through. I always thanked God for the swing!! They work wonders. I hope today is a better day for you all.

    (((hugs))) again!!!
