Mere is puzzled as to why she can't...
“What about your time?”
Single parenting is tough. Hats off to the women who are single parents, work and raise happy children and find time for themselves, for things like health.
Once upon a time, I thought it would be easy. This is reality. I am posting here at 11.00 in the night about time for myself.
I wake up at 6.30, get daughter ready, drop of her at playschool, go to work, come back at 5.45, take her out for a walk,, play with her and she finally sleeps at 9.30. In between her need for attention, I get the house organised, try and sort my financial stuff. I sleep on an average at 12.00, getting in half hour of reading a magazine.
I would love to have an hour and a half to get back to shape. My physical fitness level is awful. I used to be sooo fit..( sigh). The only way I see this happening is a) I get wealthy b) A good maid comes my way, so that I don’t have to spend time in the evening catching up on household stuff or c) the lady who live next door comes through and gets a girl from up north to come and be a live-in help for me. Chance are bleak that any of the three will happen. If there are any prices for wishing and praying, I will probably get it.
One tired momma here!
