I'm still having a rough time with my Mother in law, she now has this new thing to pester me at all hours of the morning!!
I'm 26 weeks pregnant now and can do with all the sleep I can get, I was awakened this morning at 4 am with a message on my sell phone telling me to make sure I have everything in order for my drivers licence test.
I know I did a bad thing by replying in a rude way to tell her to stop pestering me so early cos I'm not sleeping well and it's the only time I really get for myself, juggling a full time career, keeping up with doctors appointments ( mine aswell as hubby's ) and running after a perfectionist of a husband. I mean, I work 12 Hours a day, come home and start cleaning the house, then cook dinner ( and clean again!!), go for a 2 hour driving lesson, have a bath, make sure all the animals are fed and bed, lock-up the house, go to bed and do some reading then sleep till 6 the next morning when the ritual starts again??
Along with hubby getting up at 3 am to go to work.
I have no idea where I'm going to fit baby into this schedule, but she will come first in my life when she arrives, so I can see alot of friction on the way. But God doesn't put anything in our paths we cannot handle, so I'll continue to pray and know that he has special plans for me.
I know my mother in law does alot for us and I appreciate it, but the line needs to be drawn to let her know that there is a difference between interfering and helping out. I exploded this morning at my husband aswell, which I feel really bad about, but when I tell him his mother is interfering he just shrugs it off and carries on as if nothing is wrong.
Anyway, I just needed someone to talk to and get this all off my chest, Sometimes I feel like I am alone but know that I can always rely on God and all you sisters in faith.
PS: pray for me cos I'm doing my drivers license on Friday please please ( not easy going from riding am motorbike for so many years to driving a car lol )
God bless you all.
