I Quit!

I really have no right to complain. Overall, things have been going great lately!

Nevertheless, there are some days where I just want to give my two-week notice.

No, I'm not talking about leaving my paid job. I'm talking about giving notice at my non-monetary earning job. The one where I provide an enormous amount of work just for the joy of making everyone happy. Yep, I sometimes want to quit my mom job. The hours are long. The benefits can be amazing, but when they're not there, and all I hear is whining and complaining, I just want to give notice.

Tonight was one of those times. My adorable puppy had an accident on the rug, my daughter started crying over something meaningless, I'm recovering from being sick and still feel awful. It's times like these that hanging out on a tropical island while sipping some fruity rum drink with an umbrella sounds especially appealing.

Please don't tell me that I'm the only one that feels this way!

  2. My 14 year old grandson has Aspergers. My daughter is giving up hope. I do not live in the same town and only listen. Is there any way things can ever improve. Right now it is too much for her and the younger 2 kids.
