any long and arduous undertaking

characterized by effort to the point of exhaustion

this grandma:

I knew I was in trouble when my dear
Annika arrived and I witnessed this a few
minutes later... busy , exhausting day.

this face just says it all

let's sprinkle a little of gma's shredded paper around
in the water...
out of the water...
water on the floor...
water on the cupboard.

bored with water...lets play with buttons

done with buttons...moving on to paper

putting page markers into
candleholders and teacups...
ran out of page markers fast
so that didn't last long.

okay I will give grandma a little breather
because I think gma looks a little tired.

whoa...she found my bed.

trying to do a somersault...

Do I have to stop????

One last hurrah!!

...and these were just a very few of this little gals
antics today. She succeeded in wearing me out again.

No these were not staged photos...
they were literally
grab the camera and snap a picture

and...I didn't get the picture of all the flowers
she punched out of paper and I just let
them fall all over the floor. I was too tired
to care and she helped me sweep them up later.

{she really is a good little helper...just a busy beaver too}

It kept her occupied for a little while and that
is a good thing.

I think I will rest up tomorrow...

Oh Sandi... I am chuckling and I know it's not funny... It is exausting... you have to entertain every minute... If she wasn't so darn cute you would have to think twice about the challenge... Rest up... She'll be back....
