  • You need a break - just like EVERY OTHER MOTHER ON THE PLANET would if they were in your shoes! Try getting 1-3 hours per week for time for YOU! No school, phones, computers, etc. Time to take a much needed nap, go to the spa, whatever! It is not selfish - it's absolutely necessary! If you don't, you will crash and everyone will suffer. If you need to, take a semester/term off school. It's not giving up - it's taking a break. Hun - do it now before you end up in the hospital for exhaustion! GL!

  • Take a whatever it takes...higher a sitter, a friend, or your hubby on a weekend if possible, and just take a break, go get a massage, a pedi, or a cup of coffee and a cookie, it doesn't matter just do whatever it takes to TAKE A BREAK!!!! Even if it's only an hour no work, no school, no me you will feel better!!

  • You both have my applause! Go MOMMY Go! Take a day to treat yourself... once a month will help alot! take ONE day out of the month and soak in a nice warm bath, take a book to read (not school related) get yourself a pedicure.massage, something that helps you relax, then end the day with some mommy and baby time and go to bed early wake up the next morning feeling refreshed!

  • When I was doing school/work/single-parent action it helped to have some me time. My kids made their sandwiches for the week on Sunday night and stuck them in the freezer for quick lunch making in the mornings. I did get my class time away from home and had the babysitter come to my house so the kids wouldn't have to be moved after my class. Good luck - it will be completed and you will be happy to succeed.

  • Do you have any friends that can give you a break even for an hour or two? Rember this wont last forever, Iv'e been there and done that , it's no fun but it will get better. I f you feel like your gonna lose it, go outside take a deep breath and start again. If you absolutely have to could you put school on hold for a little? Keep your chin up , theres light at the end of the tunnel!
