The one where she feels sorry for herself because:

-I just realized that I am going to be making lunches for others for a very long time
-No matter what I make a dinner there are going to be complaints
-One child in particular is sucking the life out of me
-The guilt I feel for "not being nice" is overwhelming
-The thought of waking up pre-dawn is depressing me

I'm not having a good day.

(oops, accidentally published before I could finish.) Sounds a tiny bit like my life too. I can relate, Meanie. It all gets so overwhelming sometimes. I hope today is better

alison - thanks for commiserating..kudos to your, you're a single mom doing it all!

Check, check, check, check and check. On the plus side you're still as adorable as can be and another couple of weeks and the days will start getting longer again!!

I don't know what it is about this week but The Boy is making me insane too.

Life is hectic. It's going to be hectic for a long long time.
