My Sandwich Day

Today was the perfect sandwich day for me. Actually, given the weather, it would have been a perfect day for a sandwich outside but alas that wasn't going to happen.

Today was a day when I was alternately relieved that I had quit my job and peeved that I didn't have one to go to.

Today was a day when I really needed to go to yoga but couldn't muster the energy.

Today was like this:
6:15 a.m. wake up, snuggle with daughter
6:30 a.m. shower and dress
6:50 a.m. feed kids breakfast and get them ready for school
7:50 a.m. cancel dentist appointment
8:00 a.m. get kids off to school
8:30 a.m. take phone call with doctor for breast cancer article
8:50 a.m. ignore mother's phone call
8:53 a.m. ignore mother's other phone call
9:00 a.m. ignore sister's phone call
9:15 a.m. call sister back
9:20 a.m. ignore the laundry
9:22 a.m. get in the car and drive 45 minutes to take father home from hospital
10:15 a.m. - 1:30 p.m. wait for father to be discharged from hospital
1:45 p.m. drive parents home from hospital
2:15 leave parents' home and drive home
3:15 p.m. try to edit breast cancer article
3:45 p.m. go to son's parent-teacher conference
4:30 p.m. pick up son
4:45 p.m. pick up daughter
5:00 p.m. try to edit breast cancer article while starting dinner


and on and on....how did I ever work? And when can I go back? This caregiver job is DRAINING!!
