I know first impressions are important, but I am really having a miserable day. It started yesterday when DH had a phone interview for a place in Colorado. He called me afterward to tell me it went well, then added, "and I'm going to Colorado tomorrow."<br><br>
We live in Illinois. That's a 20-hour drive, and he's driving straight through, sleeping at a friend's house tonight, going to the interview tomorrow, driving 6 hours back the other way to his parents' house, sleeping there, and then driving home on Thursday.<br><br>
He left early this morning. I am sick and miserable (a cold? bronchitis? IDK) and the kids are taking full advantage of a sick mommy. Kalten (3yo) is acting out and just generally WILD. Coen (15mo) won't let me sit down without nursing him and I have nursing aversion so I can't stand it.<br><br>
I babysat two brothers today and the older one was just as naughty as my 3yo and the younger one cried... all... day. He lost his pacifier here so I couldn't even give him that.<br><br>
After they left, I took a nap with the kids and now I feel worse. On top of that, we slept til almost 7 so I'm sure it's going to be midnight or later before they sleep tonight.<br><br>
My cat ran away. He is terrified of being outside but sometimes gets brave and goes out a little. But then he panics and runs away instead of running back to the house.<br><br>
My house is soooo unbelievably messy. DH is in charge of the dishes because of my back & hip problems and he is pretty bad at keeping up with them so my kitchen counter is piled full of dishes. I need to, you know, make food for the next two days so I'm going to have to bite the bullet and wash some and be in pain for the rest of the day.<br><br>
I constantly worry about DH and I want to hear from him but I don't want to call and bother him while he's driving. My MIL keeps asking me on facebook where he is and to tell her when he gets there, and I just don't want to deal with her right now, not to mention I'm not KEEPING it from her, I just DON'T KNOW.<br><br>
Yeah, I think that's about it.

You have every rights to whine! Do you have anyone to help you with the kids? I hope you do! If not, maybe you could start a tribe here on MDC for your local and make friends so that the next time if you needed a breather, you'll have it.<br><br>
Good luck!

My mom or dad is coming to sit with the kids while i shower, that's actually my only priority right now. i've tried finding locals several times and I am the ONLY ONE.<br>
I'm sure tomorrow it will seem a bit better.

Well, I called him bc I'm going to bed. He sounded alert and OK. He drove through a storm in a mountain pass and said he's still all tense from that. He should be there in about half an hour.<br><br>
I'm losing my voice now.

The cat came home. I left the door to the porch open a crack so he could come in when he felt more comfortable, and he woke me up at 6:30, meowing to get inside.<br><br>
This is day 8 of being sick, and last night my coughs started producing greenish mucus. Does that mean I'm getting better or worse?
