Justakid Posted January 29, 2005 Share Posted January 29, 2005 My husband is going on a business trip on Monday, all week. It's going to be the first time that I have been alone since dx, treatment, etc. Feeling a little over whelmed, trying to figure out how to get the kids ready for school, do breakfast, make lunches, fix dinner, work all day and try not to bite the kids heads off while they do their homework! Oh I didn't even think about dishes and laundry and baths for my youngest! Oh wow! Don't know about this full time parenting stuff, work is still knocking me on my butt! I have a feeling it's going to be a very stressful week for me, and very exhausting. Thank goodness my daughter can help with everything. My usual helper (mom) is so sick that she can barely get out of bed. I keep reminding her that emphezema and smoking don't go together, especially when you are sick. She knows, she just can't stop. It's frustrating to watch after everything I have been through, and it pisses me off that she won't quit (I did), but she's old and set in her ways. You can lead a horse to water BUT you can't make them drink! Just might need to do some venting next week....oh yeah and whining! Poor me, all alone and having to take care of two kids and work..........it's not like millions of others aren't doing it! Gotta keep that nebulizer and the steriods pumping so I keep my strength up! I'll be the hagered looking one next week, counting down the days till the plane lands and brings me back my "work horse"! I did tell him how much I appreciate him, trying to say all those things I'm supposed to, instead of being mean! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
