day 111: I was feeling completely wiped out yesterday afternoon and not capable of moving or thinking but (since they don’t have an off switch) I was still in charge of watching after Paul and Amelia. My solution when I am feeling totally beat down is usually to put them in a stroller and go for a walk, since pushing the stroller is generally less exhausting than chasing them around the house or reading them mountains of books (which I’d already done a lot of earlier in the day). We went on a walk at one of my new favorite spots. It smells like wildflowers and is incredibly peaceful and quiet. Quite refreshing. But I still went to take a nap as soon as Ben got home.
