I am so very lucky to be a stay at home mom of 2 boys. 3 and 1. We have a very good life, my 3 year old in involved in lots of activities. And I have great friends.
But my husband has been working away from home for 7 weeks. With a few more to come. And by working away, I mean 24/7. He had fatigue days about 2 weeks ago, and another a week ago, so we wont see him again for 3 more weeks.
Im going crazy. I have ZERO family support, and I feel like I am sort of going insane. We stay as busy as we can, but then there are days like today, where I have nothing planned, and more than anything I just want to read a book. Or clean my house. But from 7am til 8pm I am on constantly. With no break. I really feel like I am starting to go loopy.
People keep telling me I shouldnt complain, and I should just be happy he works and makes great money. But its not all about that for me :(. Not only am I horribly lonely, but truthfully, I can only take so much Mommy mommy mommy in one day!!!! Any advice?? I have a babysitter yes, but school is back running, and my kids have been sick. So I havent done much. Frankly 2 hours wont make much of a difference.

P.s. In the meantime go get a massage, mani, pedi and designate a date night for you and your hubby when he is in town. This is a must! Make it happen!

Oh I know how you feel! I have a 2 year old and 8 month old and so much else going on I'm not even going to go into detail. When things get hard and crazy for me, I try to take a step back and look at the big picture and know WHY I do everything I do. The answer is simple. I love my children so much and am so thankful for them and want them to be happy and live wonderful lives . I cherish every moment with them because TIME FLIES! Parenting is hard work and sacrifice, its no easy task. When its all said and done at the end of the day I rest assured knowing I've done everything I can for those little angels. They know also because they can feel love, and the bond you have with your children is so special and irreplaceable . I've always known this but was reminded the hard way when my seven year old son lost his fight to leukemia in 2007. Life is short, sacred and should be celebrated and cherished in every way because it can be taken away so unexpectedly in an instant. PeaceandLove~Jules
