 Turn off the phone, cancel all plans, slip everyone in to comfy clothes & do the bare minimum required to keep us all alive & well. Then we all pile on the couch to either watch TV, movie or play games. We do not emerge from said state until I have recharged my batteries & am able & willing to reenter life! That usually takes 24 to 48 hours!

((Hugs)) sorry Mama. I have days/weeks,months like that.
When Mommy gets to that point, we take a break. Let everyone kind of reset and rest.
Hope things get better.

The great thing about homeschooling is that we can take days off when we need them. You can make the day up later.

Right now it's well past bedtime, and all 4 of my boys are scraping styrofoam that they shredded all over their 2 rooms off the carpet/walls/beds/toys because it overheated the vacuum to try it that way. Oh, and there's poop all over their toilet, dirty underwear from who knows how long all over their rooms, toothpaste on walls, and I had to take all 5 plus myself to the dentist today. I'm with you on exhausted/burned out/spread thin. I want chocolate.
