wanda, I do a lot... but on my weekends I just want to relax so I have energy for the coming up week... I don't have too many friends and they are always busy... I lose my temper cause trying to clean the house or if my girls fight it gets under my skin... I have my parents close even though they are retired they are always busy but I do try to go to their house with the girls.. but even that gets stressful cause they don't want to leave..

Been there at times. Are u sure it isn't hormones getting u down?
Kids do drain u though..I have two. 14 girl and 11 boy. For me it is mentally stressful.
I just always try to keep my cool by thinking of a new recipe to try accompanied by a glass of wine lol. 😄

Invite friends or family over in the evenings and weekends.
As moms we often forget to have fun. Because a sad boring mom makes a sad boring household..

Feeling burnt out, to me, comes from trying to be the perfect mom.
