When I have a problem, I voice it. I never say yes to something if I can't do it. For some reason, all of the people who once told me "Any time you need a babysitter, call me" now can't. One of the many has a valid reason (she's a high school student, so she's not available during the weekdays.) Everyone else...just finds excuses. I don't ask often. I only work one day a week normally, with an occasional second day thrown in. I give advance notice as often as I can, and yet I NEVER have a sitter. Often people dont' even bother getting back to me. My MIL who will drive two hours to spend a week with her daughter (while her daughter works MIL stays at the apartment and babysits her young son) complains on the one day a month I ask her to babysit. I'm just so sick of it. I don't make enough money to pay for daycare. I hardly make enough money to make it worth the effort of getting to work, but I NEED to get out of this apartment and away from my son one day a week. Why is it so damned hard to find a sitter when people always tell me "Oh, you should've called me?"
