Now, instead of rushing to work after cooking/eating dinner with a sink full of dishes left behind, I stay in the kitchen for an half an hour to clean up. And then Thomas requires that I play with him. I have been with him all day mind you, yet he still wants to play with me and not always his Dad. You would think he would want to play with Daddy because they have been apart all day, but it doesn't always work that way. And when he decides to play with Daddy, then I am on the computer doing work for my Dad. I am lucky enough to be able to make some extra cash helping him out. Then, we pick up the toys from the days mess and do a bath, story and bedtime. By this time I am utterly exhausted and collapse on the couch.
I do have a cleaner house now and I am able to go to bed earlier, but I have not seemed to regain any of the free time I so desperately need. We shall see in the weeks to come if I can get back on track!
