I talked to my mom last night and she had just read my blog for the first time in a few weeks. She laughed a little about my whining a few posts back, but then told me that is only because she knows me so well. She said that some of the rest of you might be a bit worried about me. Looking back at it, I don't think it is anything to worry about, but I trust my mom's instincts, at least most of the time. So just in case she is right and you are don't have to be.

When I wrote that, I was completely exhausted from Samantha getting up at least 2-3 times each night because she was having so much trouble with her allergies. And I was having one of the worst weeks ever at work. I even had a parent blaming me for her impending divorce and that her son's problems (which he has had for over 10 years) were not fixed since he has been on probation for 6 months. She stood in the hallway outside of court and lectured me on all of this for 30-45 minutes. And that was just part of the work stuff that week.

So, even though the sentiment of wanting to stay home is absolutely true, I am not in a crisis. I am not about to go crazy. And I deal with the issues of being a mom who works outside the home as they come. And I am having a much better week this week.
