<p>This has been the hardest week ever.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>My body feels WRECKED. I told dh over FB chat tonight that i could easily handle 2 of the following but not all three</p>
<p>1.) single parenting for a week</p>
<p>2.) working 40 hours</p>
<p>3.) being 28 weeks pregnant</p>
<p> </p>
<p>All three together IS WAY TOO MUCH!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Okay now i'm sorry for the vent and i know plenty of single moms out there work full time and single parent and are pregnant, but I am a big wuss and can't handle it :(</p>
<p> </p>
<p>PLEASE GIVE ME HUGS</p>
<p>Thanks! DS is asleep and i'm already feeling a lot better knowing DH will be home in less than 24 hours!!!</p>

<p>Sending lots of hugs your way, you are certainly not alone. I'm on my own this week also (DH is off at deer camp), and dealing with a 4 year old who is a gigantic mess of emotions. I was 15 minutes late for work today because she had a tantrum and wouldn't get OUT of the car to go to daycare this morning (this is after she wouldn't leave the house because daddy wasn't leaving). She decided she wanted to stay with me (which is nice), and that there was no way she was going to daycare. Then once I finally get her inside the house she proceeded to scream and cry and sob and make me feel awful about leaving her.</p>

<p>Do you get time off next week for Thanksgiving? That is the only thing that is helping me get through this week, the promise of multiple days off next week.</p>

<p>I work 40 hours and my husband is working overtime this week.  I find myself looking at the clock every 15 minutes after 5pm and hoping maybe his overtime gets cut.  Granted, we need the money, but some days I just need to cry in the bathroom for 5 minutes before dealing with it again.  :)</p>
