This is not a rhetorical question. This is a question seeking real answers, from real people.
How do you get yourself up from the couch and motivate yourself to make and serve dinner, monitor bath times, straighten the house, prepare the entire family for tomorrow's day at the beach, referee the arguments, the endless, endless arguments, ensure that the kids do their chores, in short, do everything that needs to be done, when you're tired, demoralized, otherwise engaged in a pity party, down on everyone (especially your children), and wishing everyone would just go away?
I need something.
I need to be something.
I need to hear something.
I need to get something done.
How do you do it? When it all needs to get done, and you are the one who needs to do it and you would rather be the one who doesn't have to do a damn thing?
