i want today to end now. the dog has been yapping all morning and its given me a headache. the kids are refusing thr entertain themselves so i can do some work, and all i am hearing is 'mum mum mum'. dd2 is snotty as ever, and needs her face wiping every five minutes, on top of that she is insisting on potty training today (which i should be happy about) but am worried about clearing up puddles of pee all day. dd1 is driving me mad, she is following me about constantly, and jst wont give me a break. even if i do get someone to watch them today i still have all this to deal when i get them back, as dh is still in hospital. and it'' still be the same once he is out as he isnt gonna be able to do much either. and by then or soon after i'll have a newborn to cope with as well.

Hugs Misdee {{{}}}. Try and get someone to help you. Remember you are very heavily pregnant so are drained of energy at the moment. Once you have had the baby you will be able to deal with things more misdee x

How is your dp I haven't been online for a few days Is he at harefield now?Or are they going to send him home?Sounds stressful at home Have you anyone to take the kids for a few hours They are probably following you about because of dp's being in hosp.My son goes like this when i am ill

mieow is taking my dog today (thank you!!) and i'll go round there to settle her in. MIL has had to go up north to visit her dad today as he isnt well, so FIL will take dd1 to the hospital to see her dad this evening. my mum is taking an old lady out for dinner, my other sister is at work, brother is recovering from stomach op.

dh is still at stevenage, no beds at harefield in the dept they want him in. they wont send him home as he needs to be at harefield and it'll be quicker as an in-patient than out patient. bearing in mind he was meant to be there on the 31st january.

and feeling bad for MIL as she is having to deal with her son being ill as well as her dad.

It is awful being the only parent around or able to deal with everything that goes on, isn't it? And pregnant too! My heart goes out to you.

I am facing everything on my own as from tomorrow too as dh has to go away to start his job. I am not sure when the children and I will be able to join him. Perhaps we will bothe be moaning here!

It sounds as though all your support is preoccupied today but I am sure they will rally round for you in a day or two so try to hang on to that thought.
