So then I convinced Kevin to go to the basement with me and help me haul this shelving unit (http://tinyurl.com/asw74dv) out of its box so that I could spend fifteen minutes setting it up, and then I set it up, and then I moved all my gardening crap onto it, so that a tiny corner of our desperately disastrous basement is now beautifully organized and I feel like I've actually accomplished something today. Thank you Target, and thank you Kevin, and thank you subconscious for finally shutting up for five minutes.
Although I still think I'd feel better if I did a load of the kids' laundry before bed. BOTH of them had accidents today, argh, and BOTH of them wore school clothes home because apparently we've gotten behind on having their spare changes at school, and so now I will feel guilty unless I IMMEDIATELY wash the school clothes so I can send them back with them tomorrow morning, along with spare changes, of course. Kevin does family laundry too, but he is less plagued by guilt about such things than I am.
