How Do I Live...

...on 5-6 hours of sleep a night when I used to get 7-8?

...with no word from the insurance agent about getting a rental car?

...with no word about getting my own car repaired?

...with all the hormonally challenged kids entrusted to my care each day?

...without losing my sanity? (Oh, wait. That's gone. Has been for some time.)

...with two books begging to be finished, two more dying to be told and never enough time to satisfy any of the characters?

If you have answers to any of these problems, please share. I'm ready to pull my hair out and I really don't want to go bald.

Okay, minuse the whole car issue, my life is very similar to yours. Sleep deprivation, crazy kids, books that must be finished, on and on and on. I feel your pain.

Hormonally challenged kids I can't help you with. But I find if you hound car people enough, they'll do what you need just to get you off their backs.

As for the books, I'd grab whatever free minutes you can, even if it is only minutes. Eventually it'll add up.

And stop pulling your hair. That is never a good look unless you're Jean Luc Picard.

I think any working mom is sleep deprived at all times. I know I am!
