What A Difference A Day Makes

Yesterday I was bored with nothing to read. Today, The Atlantic Monthly's 150th Anniversary issue arrived along with two completely unexpected books from Title Wave, a movie and some light bulbs I bought on eBay. Also our friends from Homer, arrived to help take care of Karen so I can go back to work on Monday.
Such a surfeit, now there's some danger I'll be overstimulated. Here are the signs that my pediatrician says mean playtime is over and I need a break:
• Closing eyes
• Turning away
• Tensing up, arching her back
• Avoiding your gaze
• Irritability
It's like he was looking right at me when he made the list.
