Calling All Tired Moms
Check out some cool chicks on a BlogHer Forum who are apparantly very tired, too. I started this forum back in August, it kept going for quite sometime: http://blogher.org/node/10017.
I feel a lot better now since I first started the forum, since I think most of my problem was with my discontent with work, and dealing with the job search. Additionally, it was just getting too much with Dave working nights and weekends that I felt like a single mom half the time. That had been going on for almost 3 years, and I think I was getting to the end of my rope. I've gotten some more energy back now since life has calmed down, but I thought it was interesting the amount of feedback I received. Fatigue seems to be the #1 disease of motherhood.
In other news, CJ is doing well, although he said he still has double vision. We had some tentative plans to go pumpkin picking today with one of the kids from his school, but Dave and I think that might be too ambitious considering his vision. And his eyes are visibly very red and swollen, although supposedly the redness is something that won't go away for quite some time. I hope he doesn't deal with any issues from his classmates on that. You know how kids can be so ruthless. I'm counting on the fact that 5 years olds are still blissfully unaware of that crap. I guess we'll see how he does in school on Monday.
