Idk where else to do this without people freaking out and over reacting. First, let me say that I am incredibly grateful my H has a job that supports our family. Now, on to my rant.
Business was predicted to increase drastically over the next two months, but his company just let go an entire room of new hires during their orientation. The partner company told one crew they will be out of work in 30 days or less. They cut back from 3 forklifts to two - meaning my H is back to a regular truck at a dollar an hour less pay. Since they didn't give him his annual raise because he had gotten a forklift raise, he now works for the same wage he was working at on his hire date over two years ago.
Did I mention I'm 39 weeks pregnant? I hurt so much I can barely walk, but it isn't contractions. I'm not dilated at all. My daughter wants to talk and complain about everything. She can't seem to self-entertain for even 5 minutes and she is picking up her step-sister's crap attitude (step-sister is at dad's so I can't fix that). My son only stops crying when I am actually holding him, bt he refuses to sit still so that hurts me even worse. My house is a disaster and I can't get anything done. I want a dark hole to crawl into and hide, but I'm claustrophobic, so that would probably make it all worse.

Do you have a good friend that could come over and help you out some today? You know if a friend was having a day like this, you would take her lunch, take her kids out for a bit and send her in for a nap. Let someone do that for you today. It is a gift when you can help someone, give a friend or family member that gift today.

I know that's part of my problem. I am a professional. All my friends are in a classroom today working with school children. I gave that up to stay home with my own kids, but it also isolated me and I've had a terrible time finding mom friends. My SIL and I would normally do something, but she is running a 103* fever - can't really risk sharing that. Lol.
