right now

my husband is out of town til further notice due to illness in the family
my kid is screaming because she doesn't want to nap and hit me when I put her in bed
my house is a mess
i have to wash the car because it is getting inspected tomorrow
my kid is still screaming
and there is nothing good here to eat.

I need some encouragement!
or reinforcements.

I don't have much advise to give you BUT I can sympathize! Doesn't it just make you want to scream sometimes? There are times I don't feel like I can give anything else of myself to J when she is acting out. Sometimes she gets so demanding and acts so unappreciative. Hang in there... It's weird, but it kinda helps me to sing "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" loudly :o) Don't know why, but I've done it since she was born! Ready? All together now... "Listen baby! Ain't no mountain high, ain't no valley low, ain't no river wide enough, baby...."

Oh, Tia! I hate when it just feels overwhelming like that. I'm so sorry your husband is gone--hope the illness is resolved soon. :(

((((Hugs!!!))) You may not get everything done, but it WILL be okay!

Molly said... sorry to hear that!! I'll be on Facebook all night probably if you need some venting!!! :)

Tia!! I hope everything is okay with your family member and that Chris comes home soon! Tomorrow will be better : )

My advice...put Ellie in the car (where I'm guessing she'll fall asleep) and drive thru or better yet or at a resteraunt that has curbside to go...sit it the car and enjoy your dinner while she takes a nap...or Starbucks and a good book. It always gives me a little peace...I've sat in many a parking lot with a latte and book while my kids snoozed!

Oh, man. Hang in there. I hope your night got better. Make sure you get out of the house tomorrow and pick up something fun -- ice cream and People magazine? (Those seem to work for me.) Good luck! =)
