I feel like I am basically teetering on the edge of disaster every day. Today the day care called and said my son had vomited and had diarrhea. So, I had to pick him up. Day over. Missed a meeting with the provost about a grant we are submitting. Missed a half day of work at a critical time. May or may not be able to make up for that at home... What happens during the semester when I have to cancel classes because of a sick kid? That's only excusable the first few times. That and its so easy for things to FEEL like they are spiraling out of control when one little thing slips up.
