Just got sent to my room......

So after a weekend without my kids at home (they went to visit Daddy), I thought today would be good.  I was hopeful that when they got home, I could enjoy having them tell me about their weekend.  It might have even gone that way, had they not had to do homework that wasn't done on Friday.

Homework in my house would give a saint a headache, I swear.  For someone who suffers from daily headaches and frequent migraines, it's hell on Earth.  Two cranky girls in one room crying or getting angry at their math homework is recipe for disaster.  They get mad at each other for the noise, then start yelling.  That gets me cranky.  With stress being the biggest trigger for a migraine for me, being cranky is a bad thing.

I've been sent to my room by my fiance (who is the greatest thing to happen to me since my kids were born) to give me the break I need to try to keep the migraine from happening.  This is one of those things that I am on the fence about.  While I am very grateful to him for being willing to step in when I need him to, I feel bad about it.  They aren't his kids, he's already been dealing with them all day (he did the picking up from their dad's house) and he deserves a break.  I should be able to take care of my girls.  I should be able to deal with the tempers without losing my own.  One argument, that doesn't even involve me, shouldn't send me into agony and make me want to cry.

I try to be hopeful and optimistic, but it's not easy when I have more and more days like today.

I know it is not easy to let someone help you right now, but this is MOMS way of rewarding you for the times you were there for others. I learned the hard way that it was best to let others help and when I did let them help I began to get better quicker. So let Ted help you now, and someday you will be able to repay him for what he has done for you. HUGS
Love Mama

Thanks, Mom. I do let him help. I understand that I need to and he's very good about it. It's just hard for me to ask him to because I have to do it so much.
