okay maybe just I am lol.. This was my day... I worked from 4-12am.. come home.. haven't seen my husband since Tuesday because of his schedule (6am - 7pm). Crawl into bed.. try to sleep with two small children and two dogs.. up at 7:30am.. rush to get my son ready for preschool.. drop my 4 year old off at 8:45.. take my other son to Strong Start (mom and me program) .. play for 2 hours trying to stay awake..thank god they have coffee because I did not have time to make any or eat. Drag my son kicking and screaming away from his friends to get his brother at 11:15.. drag both of them hungry and whiney to the grocery store after stopping for a new cloth diaper and pants.. because my sons leaked and I forgot to bring one. Yes I was THAT mother.. stripping my kid in the parking lot because leaving my 4 year old strapped in his car seat was easier then dragging them both to the washroom. Feed them while shopping.. still haven't eaten myself.. Grocery shop.. load.. unload.. with two small children one of which has behavioral issues and takes off every two seconds or melts down entirely.. manage to get out of the store.. get home.. unpack groceries.. its now 1pm and I am finally eating..
then i get to clean my house.. get ready for work.. drag the kids to pick up my babysitter because she doesn't drive and she smokes in her house so she has to come to mine.. (she doesn't smoke in my house)..then run to work and deal with behaviorally challenged teens for 8 hours.. get home at midnight.. finally see my husband maybe?
oh and i have a birthday party, a retirement party and my brothers welcome home from Indonesia party to plan for this weekend.. guess where it is? My house.. guess where everyone is staying? my house..

I'm not, I'm sure some are. I love working, I love not having all our money go to bills. I love having the luxury of wanting something and being able to go get it without saving up for it. I guess I love the money lol.
Not gonna lie I miss being a sahm. Being a single working mom is rough. I do enjoythe independence and being more than just mom.

That's a crazy schedule! I love being a sahm which is what I've always done. Now that my oldest is in school and my youngest is in preschool I get 6 hrs to get things done. The reality for our situation was one of us needed to be here because both of our jobs required us to travel a lot. My husband makes far more money that I do so I was the one to stay home. I am rarely bored. I don't watch tv at all during the day. I do get up every morning at 6 am to get myself ready, then my kids and get them off to school. After that I work out. I shower every day and get dressed in something nice every day. Sometimes I do errands that need to be done for the house and other times I go meet a friend for lunch or get my nails done or go shopping. Other days I volunteer for my sons school. I like my life like this...it's stress free.
