I babysat the two rugrats from next door for *six* hours today, starting at 8 am. (I was *not* expecting it to be six hours.) Then I had a three hour nap. (I did *not* sleep well last night... I kept tossing and turning, and I dreamed that my doorbell rang twice. At least I think I dreamed it... when I went to my door, no one was there.) Now I feel like a zombie. Plus I have a killer headache.

I have a ton of reading to do before tomorrow. *sigh* I've done some, but I didn't expect to have nearly as much of today eaten up by babysitting (and nap) as I did.

My, that was a loud *screech* just now... I think an accident was just narrowly avoided outside! (The screech was not followed by a pop.)

PS: The rugrats also ate all my pickles.

Sorry you're feeling wiped out. 6 hours with little kids certainly takes a lot of stamina! I hope the headache goes away.

What is it with kids and pickles? Put out pickles at a family "do" and the kids eat up all the pickles.

I do not know. However, I figured that they weren't *too* bad, given the vegetable content, so hopefully that balances all the salt. ;)

That reminds me... I meant to put pickles on my grocery list.

I did cheat a bit with the babysitting... I took them around the neighbourhood until I found more kids, and then let the rugrats wear each other out. ;)

I used to babysit kids alot. I stopped doing it after I felt my services were being abused. Even though I loved the kids like mad I just ended up feeling like 'Mom' was taking advantage of me.
