What Fresh Hell Is This??


A desperate journal entry entitled: “What Fresh Hell Is This?” 

(or, “How I Spent My Morning”.)


This morning started off sluggishly.  Our dog was killed yesterday, I was up until the wee hours of the morning and the baby woke up about 2389736893 times through the night.  Then, our 4year old insisted that his tummy was SO HUNGRY this morning, so he ate and ate and ate.
