Busy Days Not Enough Brains

Dahlia has taken to cruising around all over the office, which is another way to keep me on my toes. Most things are baby-proofed and the rest I just try to corral her with me to keep her out of harm's way. She loves to empty my recycle bin, play with shredded paper (packaging from our DVD order), 'read' magazines and of course play with her stash of toys which are here. I'm surprised, and not at all surprised by how fast she's gone from barely crawling to moving quite quickly!

Today we are having our family portrait/holiday pictures/Dahlia's one-year-pictures taken. Hopefully we can all be not crabby & stain free by then. I'm changing Dahlia into her outfit MOMENTS before the photos. Just too risky otherwise.

At work I'm trying to wrap up the books for the year. And I suck at it. My brain just doesn't seem to fire on all cylinders. I used to do this stuff daily for my job and now I feel just stupid. Inventory & taxes & 1099's and blah blah blah. I'm not good at it.

But now - time to feed Dahlia...she's turned on her I'M HUNGRY RIGHT NOW DAMMIT voice.

How do you work and have her there? I am home and can't seem to get anything done with a toddler? Including cleaning my house or making dinner. I can't imagine trying to actually work?

um, some days are better than others. Some days she's content to play by herself, go bug the neighbors or take long naps. Somedays...I don't get much done.

I don't know how to "do" books. It's one of the reasons I'm not as marketable as an office person. I just don't get it.
