Depressed, vent, update. Whatever

Wow. It's been a long time since I've been here. 

My last post was about the modification hearing. It was heard in September and the judge has STILL not made a decision. Like what the eff is that about??

Anyway, "quarantine" or whatever has been, for the most part, miserable. Oh and BM tried to say she could keep SD basically indefinitely because the schools shut down right before Spring Break and this year Spring Break was BM's time. We shut that down real quick. 

But it's been really hard to work from home and be around both DH and SD seemingly 24/7. I love them. I do. But I am an introvert. And I'm just overwhelmed with helping SD with her virtual learning while trying to work. It doesn't help that SD is extremely talkative and social. It's hard for me to maintain enough energy for that plus myself and my marriage. 

And apparently BM has just turned into more of a monster to SD. Screamed in her face the other day that SD was never going to be "smarter" than her. 

Anyway, I know this post is all over the place. The point is, I'm having a really hard time. And my job has basically said we're not going back until at least September 1....

I don't have any advice for you but I know what you are going thru with the talkative SD.  My DH & I are in quarantine and I love him BUT he talks all day long!  Talks to me!  I'm an introvert, too.  I intellectually understand that is how he processes things, by talking.  But he doesn't understand I have a lot going on in my head.  Anyway, i feel for you, fellow introvert.

I dont think you have to be an introvert to struggle with quarantine.  I know myself and other families I talk to are all struggling.  No matter how much you love your family being in top of each other 24/7 is stressful.  I know I am much more easily irritated these days .
