Right now, I am so tired and lonely. This has been one of those weeks when I have had a lot going on – and so has my husband. I feel like I have barely seen him. I mean, he’s always busy on his week on call but this past week has been unreal. The stress of my worries and a long week at work has made me feel completely exhausted. And because my dear husband has been gone, I’ve had the added stress of being a single parent.
Now, it is Saturday and he has been gone all day. I am at my wits end with my children and he just called to say he got another call and won’t be home for another several hours. I put my daughter down for a nap and sent my son to the neighbor’s to play. I can barely focus right now. I want to veg out in front of the television, but I won’t. My house is a disaster, there’s a strange odor in the kitchen, I’ve got a pile of laundry a mile high and now, because I’m tackling the toy room, a front yard full of toys.
Okay, I’m done complaining. I am headed down to put a load of laundry in and then outside to work on the toys. I’m hoping to feel some sense of accomplishment by the time I go to bed.
