Tired of the extra weekends
I know this sounds petty compared to what everyone else is going through but I’m tired of taking ssons an extra weekend a month. We’re doing it to help BM out so she can have a break from the boys. She works when we have ssons, by us taking them she gets a weekend off.
I guess what I’m really tired of is the running. This past weekend was our extra weekend and Saturday was just crazy:
9 a.m. – SS12 boy scouts
11 a.m. – SS12 b-ball tournament game
1 p.m. - SS12 2nd b-ball tournament game & SS8 karate
Sunday we dropped them off at her place for a party.
Monday night (our regular night) – SS12 boy scouts
Tonight (our regular night) – SS12 & SS8 evening class BM signed them up for.
Tomorrow – SS12 b-ball tournament game
Fri/Sat/Sun. - (our regular weekend) more b-ball and karate.
There’s just no end to the running…it’s exhausting.
We didn’t get home till after three Saturday and then I was doing the laundry, DH was cooking dinner. I lost it with the boys before dinner. I came upstairs from the laundry room and they’re jumping on SS12’s bed. DH had just finished yelling at them (I heard him from the basement). I just laid into them, the boys were shocked, so was DH, cause I rarely yell.
And I’ve been feeling guilty ever since for losing it.
Thanks for listening.
