Reader's Wrap - Can you spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R?

I started the knitted Reader's Wrap and it was coming along nicely, until last night.
Tired and just needing to find some moments of calm uninterrupted time (after babysitting since Friday Evening) I retired to my room and proceeded to work on the Reader's Wrap. I got about 5 rows into when I noticed that the first row I did then had a gaping hole in it where I dropped a stitch. Well, now I have to admit that while I can knit adequately, I can't mange to fix a boo-boo without froggin' the piece. I make an attempt to correct the mistake which didn't work, so I tried to frog it back to where the mistake was. Well that was a huge mistake. I lost more stitches and now just need to frog the whole thing and start over. I am not really looking forward to starting over, but I don't have much of choice as I can't figure out how to continue with it as it is now. Aaaaaarrrrruuuuuggggghhhhhhhh!

I would like to work on it now, but I still have the boys and knitting or crocheting is difficult at best when I am keeping them. Especially if it is a project that requires concentration.
I plan on starting it again this evening if I am not too tired once they leave. Which is doubtful because I am exhausted and sleepy now and it's only 2:04 p.m. and their father won't get here to pick them up until probably somewhere between 4:30 and 5:00. The way I feel right now I may go straight to bed once they leave (and sleep for 3 days! LOL!)
