    Can I just say I'm glad I'm not you right now. Hang on tight! Good thing you have a supportive husband and kids.

    I cannot believe that you are seriously upset about working 30.25 hours over five days. Cry me a river. You don't even have to work, you chose to do this to yourself. Meanwhile in the real world there are women out there who do not have the luxury of being able to stay home with their kids and who have to work more than 40 hours a week and still manage to be there for their kids and make dinner every night, not just one out of five nights.
    You have nothing to complain about because you live on easy street. Maybe if you spent less time going on with the "woe is me" routine, you wouldn't be so tired.

  4. Wow, anonymous.

    I can't believe you took the time to add up my hours.

    And in case you didn't notice, I didn't complain in my post. All I did was state facts. I use my blog as a record of my days - my schedule, my thoughts, my life.

I love it when people talk back...
