First off, thanks so much for all of the encouraging comments in the post below. You ladies are so sweet. :)
What a difference a day makes! We slept in on Friday (which was glorious in and of itself), then the TV was on significantly less throughout the day. Ava watched Laurie Berkner in the morning and “The Snowman” in the afternoon and that was it. Yay!

No, I didn’t take a shower, do my hair or put on make-up, but I did make dinner without interruptions! :) Woohoo!
