Just two days off. That's all I ask. Just two fricken' days to not have to think, or run around anticipating the needs of this household, myself, and two young kids.
I'm tired of the constant struggle. I want to be able to sit down and enjoy a book, or take a bath without having to worry about how long I have to actually enjoy it before another thing has to be done. My poor son has been so understanding about my having to meet the needs of his sister; I want to be able to play a wii game with him, or build a haunted cookie house with him without having to drop him like a hot potato to run over to do something else.
Both kids deserve a mother who has more patience.
And I seriously want to pop the shit out of the next person I hear with a complaint about anything, if I know that they might have just one opportunity in a 24 hour period to take a crap in peace, without hearing the little voice in their head saying "okay, this is what needs to be done next to remedy this problem" .
Oh, and just to remind some people about the second honeymoon that my husband and I took before deployment: yes, we got the chance to rest and spend time together before he left...
it was very well deserved for busting our asses for only God knows how long, and another one of those vacations will be needed very soon.
Yes, I know that tomorrow, I'll probably post some positive aspect of life around here, but for now, I'm TIRED!
