The kids have been home nearly all week between sickness and MLK Day. I was anxious to get back to work today but neither of them felt up to school, so I'm trying to juggle taking care of them with working from home.

My son told me while I was making them waffles that I need to work harder so we can get some more money.

I didn't take that very well. I asked him if he'd like me to drop him off at school while he's sick so I can go work.

I told my husband what was said and my resentments about it. It sounds like a comment from his family. I feel like they just want to burn me out and throw me out.

He thinks I'm exaggerating but that's how I feel.

I am very tired and burnt out. Lately I just don't feel like I have energy for anything and it seems I'm sick more often than I'm well. I wish I had something more positive to say, but today I just don't.


  1. I hope that things will get better. Take care of yourself.

  2. I'm sorry it's so hard. Burnt out is a feeling I know well, and I hope it passes quickly.
