Skimpy Posting

Once again, I find myself apologizing for my erratic and skimpy posting. I went to Georgia last night to babysit my grandson, but didn’t stay all night, thinking I didn’t need to babysit tonight because it was covered. Unfortunately, my daughter called me and told me that had fallen through and she would need me again tonight.
I love my daughter and my grandson and will help out anyway I can, but right now, I’m so tired, I could just cry. What good would that do anybody?
So, yet again, I suck it up and do what I have to do.
Feeling so depressed right now.
Just needed to vent a little.

  1. Being a new grandmother ( well OK she’s 3 ) I know all to well it is exhausting. I wonder how my Mom kept up with my boys for all of those years. Just breathe! And enjoy.


    1. I wish she would just leave him with me at my home, but I know she wants to spend time with him when she can. As long as she was on the 10 am – 8 pm shift, it wasn’t so bad. Now, she’s on a 10 am – 10 pm shift and it is horrible. Day Care closes at 6 pm and the girl she had to pick him up is so flaky…one day she can, the next day she can’t, and so forth. So it’s a never know until the last minute thing. I can’t schedule a dr’s appointment, plan an evening meal, etc… plus the wear and tear on my husband who has to get up at 4:30 am to get ready for his job that starts at 6 am. It’s just a big mess right now.


      1. {{Hugs}} That sounds like a rough load, but I think she has to consider your needs as well here, Debra. A talk is in order because you can’t keep burning the candle at both ends like this. What someone can withstand while younger doesn’t always carry over into their later years.


      2. You are right and thanks so much for the HUG. We did talk a little about it last night, but it was late when she got off work, and we were tired, and she was tired. So we didn’t get to talk much.


    1. Thank you for your words of encouragement. I do feel better this morning and I think the next two nights are covered. That will give me a little break, before I go back on Saturday morning to babysit. He is no trouble and is such a sweet baby. It is the drive back and forth that is wearing me down. 🙂


    1. Very true and I love him so much. He is such a sweet boy and a good baby. It’s not the babysitting that is getting me down, it is the long drive back and forth that is killing me. With all my health problems, I can barely move some days and car riding nearly kills me.


  2. Vent away!!!

    I think we all have days like that. Days when your so worn out – so utterly exhausted – that tired doesn’t even begin to describe…. Days when you just want to crawl back in bed and say
    “To heck with everything” (but know you can’t).

    Hoping today is better for you 🙂
