definitely subbing, too tired to quote but really identify with the "moooooing cow" poster. The IQ points just seem to be melting away. So do the civilized table manners speaking of my little boss, he's awake, gotta go

He is home for the weekend now.

I have not had even a couple hours off without kids in over 4 years. When he is home he is working on paper work for the business(we are independant, he has his own business)

I am completely burnt out. The baby woke up last night at 4am screaming..I never got back to sleep...it's now 6:45am.

I just started a chemistry course, it's a homestudy. I am going to go to class to get away. I am really enjoying it. I have to concentrate so hard on what I am doing it takes my entire focus off the kids for a while.

Oh..and I just started my period.

It ain't gonna be pretty around here today
Yikes! You have a very tough schedule and little help. That is soooo hard. I feel for you.

My husband works late a lot, too, but not the kind of hours you're facing. When my DC was born, though, my husband went back to work right away and would be at work until nearly 10 pm most nights. It was awful to be newly post partum, recovering from a c-section, and caring for a newborn all on my own for several months.

It's hard...I can't imagine what you've gone through over the years. Hope things get easier.

It seems to me that some POW training should be a part of getting your mom's license...

Oops, they have a license? Is there a training course provided as well? If so, man! I could have used that knowledge the first few weeks! :
