Thing 1 went to the neighbor's to play right after lunch. Thing 2 moped around the house lonely and looking for someone (mommy) to play with. Mommy moped around the house exhausted from staying up all night the night before, and frustrated from cleaning up the messes I've been making. All I really wanted was a nap. I did get up enough motivation, though, to use up some old bananas and make banana bread. Thing 2 helped a lot - she mashed the bananas, and ground a cup or so of wheat... it entertained her for half an hour or so, and it was delightful having the help. She got tired of helping and ducked out before the bread went in the oven.
