Worn Out Math

5 hours of sleep Wednesday night
+ 2 fussy kids during said Wednesday night
+ 3 pickup truck loads of my Mom's stuff I moved yesterday morning
+ gazillion times I ran up and down the stairs of Mom's apartment to move said stuff
+ 2 kids to doctor for 4-year well visits and vaccines yesterday afternoon
+ 1 kid to doctor for flu vaccine
+ 2 tired, frazzled parents also needing flu vaccines
+ 3 hours in the doctor's office
- 6 combined hours the kids didn't nap due to being in said doctor's office
+ 13 vaccinations total between all five of us (5 flu, 2 polio, 2 chickenpox, 2 DTP, 2 MMR)

All raised to the nth power where n = the number of times said kids fussed due to lack of sleep and sore injection sites.

Equals no frappin' blog post.

Have a good weekend, fellow citizens of the PRB.

You've made this too easy. The answer is 12.43 (with the 3 repeating infinitely).

Ugh. I don't envy you that day. Get some sleep, woman!

Ha, but you actually DID post! I wouldn't have even looked at my computer, sister. You truly are a rock star.

Been there. Done that. But I DO understand. Let him take care of the kids on Saturday. Get some sleep. You'll feel better in the morning. Then you take care of the kids on Sunday, so HE can get some sleep. By Monday, you'll both feel better or you'll both be ready to gouge each other's eyes out.

And it sounds like you won't get a break when any of the kids are sick this winter.

You know what will cure that plus a multitude of other ills? Make an appointment to have 2 wisdom teeth pulled ASAP. You might be a bit uncomfortable afterward, but the drug-induced sleep that follows will give you the best 18 "nap" of your life! (I liked the idea so much that I had it done Monday morning... I'm planning for a repeat in another 10 days!!)

Enjoy your weekend, doll. You deserve it!
