single mom bennies??????
oh please, someone tell me where to sign up for those!
(seriously, work it if you can Ravin - i think you might have a point for undergrad, but in law school - my school anyway - they do not give a rat's ass how many kids or how few husbands you got.)
i'm a little stressed today, y'all. up till now i have been leaving ds w/ a sitter during my wed night class, but taking him to my tues/fri class, and it's worked beautifully up till recently. but today my tues/fri prof told me, very nicely and reasonably, that he would like for me to make other arrangements now, as ds is getting much more active and vocal. i guess i should just be thankful that both ds and prof were so accomodating for so long. but instead i'm just freaking out about child care issue. i was really hopig to make it to the end of the semesster. i'm just feeling so overwhelmed by everything, i just do not feel up to dealing w/ this at all. on top of everything else, ds has, in the last week, adopted a strident anti-babysitter, anti-bottle platform. brilliant timing.
Bex80 thanks for asking! not weekEND visitors. my dad and stepmom got here the first day of my break, stressed me the f**k out, and ds and i came down w/ a horrible cold the very next day. dad and stepmom stayed for 5 days, and altho she was on her best behavior, give credit where its due, there is just no way that situation could not be majorly stressful. the day after they left my sister got here and stayed 8 days, and she was a huge help, especially b/c ds and i were still sick for most of that time. she left yesterday morning. and i noticed the same thing as the last time she came - right after her visit i feel so lonely and overwhelmed and small and not up to this task. i don't feel like that normally, not at all. but after having someone around, who i'm close to and can really count on, i guess the contrast is what makes it so hard. i'm having a hard day.
don't ask me how i'll get that paper done in the next month. 15 minutes a day is not gonna cut it.
ok, enuf of that.
june'smom, i got your pm but haven't had a chance to write back yet. sorry! you know how it is...
