I never really believed in needing “me time”, but after the last few weeks- I NEED it! And here is why…

-He has been home for 3 weeks with ribs she broke by jumping on him in the middle of the night.

I thought man flu was bad…

-The night of the ribs was the same night my grandfather passed away.

So I have had the stress of losing a loved one, and dealing with an invalid.

-Couldn’t ger to Sydney for the funeral.

-I have spent so much time at parks it is ridiculous – mainly because she is sooo excited Daddy is home, and doesn’t understand why he can’t play, or even pick her up, and keeps trying to jump on him.

-Running the house, cooking, cleaning, all the normal jobs seem twice as hard.

-I then tore the muscle in my shoulder, so picking things up or doing things hurts, but I haven’t got a choice other than to keep going.

-His boss keeps calling asking why he isn’t back at work yet.

-Miss 2 has given up on sleeping at normal times.

-My neighbour is being her usual pain in the bum self, making nuisance complaints again. (Her boyfriend is in jail and she is bored, apparently…)

-The cats have fleas.

-The car is playing up, but when I say it sounds like it is playing jingle bells he looks at me blankly. It does not do it if he is in the car.

-I suddenly have to find the money for 4 birthday presents as 4 family members are having a combined party.

-The one blessing is he wont be away and in danger as he can’t go to fight the NSW fires as he is still damaged.

-My one ray of light was a night out with the girls. This would have beem the first time I had been out without madam. The money went on his pain killers, so no night out.

I NEED A HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
