Can I quit?

What was I thinking trying to have three kids and start a new career with no husband? At least single parents get every other weekend off or more if they don't have a deadbeat ex. I've had three nights off with no children, for which I am very thankful for, but I think I need a week. Greedy I know.

Had an observation today--mental note: shaving cream and children do not mix. I felt like crap today, and my day just seemed to go downhill. Went to a meeting with nothing that I needed. Went to PT where I found out that the OT authorization wasn't there--and don't even get me started on how it has taken TWO YEARS to get her in there! So I called and finally got it and an authorization number, so Abs had an OT eval. She wasn't terribly behind like she is in PT, but it's still a significant difference, so we now go from 5-6 on Tuesday and Thursday.

I was supposed to go to a math class tomorrow, but Em has xylophone practice till 4, which is when my class starts, so that's out. That would mean my inlaws would have to drive three places to get all the kids, which would be pushing my luck.

Junior screamed almost the entire time at PT and OT. It got worse when Abs stole his goldfish. Went to grab chinese food for me and I ordered the wrong meal. It's okay, but I had my heart set on something else. Got the kids whataburger since it was late. Junior's still screaming by this point.

Is someone out to get me and push me over the edge? Someone in my class said that if she was interviewed to see if she qualified as insane, she would pass with flying colors----I would qualify to be her roommate.

So here I sit watching Biggest Loser while I feel like one. I know my life could be worse, I know. I try to keep it all in perspective. Tomorrow is a new day......

Korin, I love reading your blog! Somedays I laugh outloud and somedays I tear up! I don't know how you do it!! As for the shaving cream - who cares what the observer thought you know all those kids went home and told their parents how much fun they had today and that's what matters and for Junior having to sit at the PT appt bring playdough or a box of bandaids - the cheap ones - works everytime for Megan when we have to sit through Tyler's practices! :) Becky

I hear you. And when I have a day like this, I suddenly hear Steve's voice form Blues Clues (the guy before Joy) singing: Don't give up, just go on!!!!!! (well, he was singing it because he didn't find the third clue) and I am usually singing it, because I don't have a clue AT ALL, how I should manage the next day.
I don't know you in person, but I am really impressed how you get it all done..I hope your day today was better.

I love your attitude. Some days feel nearly impossible, but eventually they end and another begins.

You are doing great. If you ever need anything, I am here, too.
