Pressure Point

I feel the need to just say that I think I have reached my limit. I am not used to suffering husbandlessness for so long. Having to handle the kids all holiday has emptied my tank so-to-speak.

They went back to school today and everything has been fine until now. 1745. Just moments ago i came unglued.

Something silly set me off and now I am Just Done.

He must come home now.

All I can do is send a hug!

I remember how difficult it was as a young mom of two little boys when DH when to the border every second year for 3 months.

I know how difficult it can be without ones partner. Sorry that you are having a crap time. (((hugs)))xx

I'm so not a blogger said...

and even though thinking may not be quite enough, know that we are thinking of you. it takes serious work doing the family thing alone,and you are allowed to feel done. once the tank is empty it has space to refill.
sending hugs ((()))

as an experienced mother of 5 children, some of whom I have raised alone for years when they were very young, I have amassed wisdom, and coping stratergies, and good ideas, and blah, blah, blah......Now listen, this is what you do. Get 6 bottles of medicine to go beside your bed. Large box of tissues. blow on half of them and scatter them around the room. Hide 2 good books, a kilo of wine gums, some packet of choc chip cookies, and a bottle of wine under the bed. 3 Hours after he arrives as you are selflessly going to make him tea, you faint. Meekly claim, that you will be ok and its just the fever, migraines and exhaustion. long story short, off to bed you go, where you will be motherlessly sick, for 3 days, or when the wine/wine gums run out! Problem solved!!

Coming unglued is natural forgive yourself and move on. I have come unglued and lost it even when my husband is not away. For me I used to feel guilty for days now I just have a good cry wash my face and remember that His mercies are new every morning

I so know your frustration. I had that too when I was a parent who's husband worked shifts (4 days not seeing him in the evenings). I felt like a single parent. Hugs
