I know moms don’t get vacations. We may get periods where we are free from kids but we don’t truely get a vacation. However, I sure need something. I feel as if I’m running on less than fumes and it’s only a matter of time before I snap or break, I guess it could go either way really. Some of the reasons I don’t get this is because I wouldn’t know what to do if I was just to go out myself nor would I have the money for a splurge on something. I would know that money was needed, truely needed for other thing. Another problem is sometimes I would just like to be home with no kids to peddle around and do what I want. For that to happen though I would need a babysitter to take the kids, and before they left things would have to be clean so I wouldn’t be compelled to clean while they are away. What’s a mom to do. I just saw a book that is suppose to really help in this area but not sure if I can get my hands on a copy. Has anyone read, The Mother Load by Mary Byers. If you have, would you care to comment on it.
