Being a working mother is seriously difficult and there are days I simply want to just NOT be WORKING!
Ugh..I have been off of work for the past two days, because London has been sick with croup. I truly enjoyed the time even though she was sick. As I sat at home taking care of her and holding her all day in the back of my head all I could think about was the mountain of work on my desk when I finally did return. Today is that day and I just want to scream and pull my hair out!! My workload seems to have tripled and its so much that I just jumped on JM so I didn't have to look at it!!! Normally on Fridays I work half day and then spend the other half having me time. This will not happen today and I will be working ALL day. I pray I make it through the day without losing my mind Thanks for letting me vent..........
Yes. It does feel like that for me. I don't get a regular half day off - but there is enough flexibility that when I do need a sanity check, I can flake off for a few hours here and there. Yesterday I had one of those days...Took the afternoon off, and laid in bed for a while. I think I'm getting sick too, and that seems to be when things hit me the hardest.

Sometimes I think about this, too, but I don't think being a SAHM would be necessarily easier. It's tough to take care of a toddler, and I think I'm more patient overall with a break from non-stop childcare. Of course, I work from home and I don't know how you ladies can handle working outside of the home.
