My kids are all at the age where they can help.
How do I get my stuff together, I feel like every day is a battle.
When I am trying to control/fixing one situation, another comes up right in the middle, then I forget about what I was doing. OMG< it is like a war in my home, and I am the enemy. :( How do you handle it? How do you get everything together, by the way I work from 9am-3pm. Yes I am single, by choice, I left him 3 months ago. I will never be in a relationship again that I am not happy with, or feel controled. When my kids found out we were separating, not a tear was shed, i think they were relieved we argued too much.
Lately, it has been hard, and although I know this too will pass, sometimes I get discouraged......

I have 5 kids but I'm a SAHM and married so not sure I could relate. I have been on my own, though. Back in April my husband transferred jobs and moved away. I was left alone (mostly, we were living with my dad but he gave me minimal help) with 4 kids and I was in my 3rd trimester. And I had no car. It was beyond rough and I was so exhausted I just gave up and the kids ran all over me. It took my husband a couple weeks to get control when he came back for the baby's birth and I'm still working on keeping control over the situation. The girls are giving me the most trouble. My 10yo has behavior problems and his getting hormonal on top of that. She shares a room with the 8yo and 4yo and the 3 of them fight like crazy. The only helpful one is the 8yo. The others fight me every turn.
