One, two, three, four

... child home sick with bad allergy symptoms and fatigue
... roll of toilet paper left in the whole house
... young dog eager for a good romp outside

Two ...
... lawyers with whom I am having daily conference calls
... moms who helped me this morning to set up lunch for 60 staff people at the elementary school in honor of Teacher Appreciation day
... trips to the grocery store within 30 minutes to buy platters of food for the teacher lunch
... times I was at the grocery store this morning and still forgot to buy toilet paper

Three ...
... a.m., when I finally got to bed this morning after working all night to meet a filing deadline today
... big stacks of documents on my desk needing to be sorted and filed after the frenzy last night
... times the pharmacy has called today so far to remind me that there is a prescription waiting to be picked up
... loads of clean laundry currently on my bed waiting to be folded and put away

Four ...
... massive wads of batting, which is what my head feels like it is stuffed with today instead of a brain
... contestants in the Barbie fashion show/gymnastics/horse show which Caroline has put on for my (ahem) entertainment today
... minutes after dinner is when I’ll go straight to bed

Um, what comes after four... I'm so tired I can't even count straight.
