My life in numbers

4 the number of teeth grown by the Baby in the past week or so
1 her very first head cold too
20 the number of times she wakes up at night
3 the number of times I have gone to bed without flossing this week
7 days before hanukkah starts
8 presents I need per child before then. I wonder if I can get away with new toothbrushes for one night again this year?
4 major sewing projects for said gifts
4 projects that I haven’t started yet
4 days before MIL’s birthday. I haven’t started her present either.
2 little girls who have birthday this month
3 relatives who will be hurt if I don’t give them a Christmas gift, (no matter how many times we ask them not to give us gifts or make a big deal.)
3 different craft projects begun for said relatives
1 hand knit washcloth finished so far
0 the amount of extra cash I have to work with this month
5 hours of sleep
27 straight days of posting for the real food revolution
87 random items strewn across my living room floor
5 wet towels on the bathroom floor, for two small children, how is this possible?
24 hours in a day, no matter how hard I try to find more.
1 spectacular husband. The pay off for less work is that I get to see him more often, and he gets to do things like help the kids in the morning sometimes when I need to sleep. And let the Baby nap on his chest when she’s feverish.
10 seconds to fall asleep once my head hits the pillow.

One thought on “My life in numbers

  1. Oh, my! You are busy and, I would assume, exhausted. I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed, too. I’m trying to make some Christmas gifts this year also and I have a daughter with a birthday next week. Plus, I’m homeschooling. Some days I feel as my life is speeding by and I have no way to slow it down. I just keep telling myself, as an old college professor of mine used to say, “This, too, shall pass.”
