Feeling like I can't handle it

I go to school full time (20hrs, none online), I have a 3 1/2 and a 1 1/2 y/o and I am currently in the process of divorcing their father (divorce will be final Tuesday). I am absolutely overwhelmed to the point that I don't know what to do.
My divorce has gotten messy, stressful and insulting. I feel guilty for keeping my kids in daycare, but I can't study with them at home during the week. I easily loose my patience with them. I feel like I dot spend enough time with them, but when I'm around them I think about other things that need to be done and I get stressed. My house is a wreck, I have exams to study for and my children seem to continue to test me. I feel like I'm at my breaking point.

Hugs!!! I'm in pretty much the same situation except for working ft and that I've always been a single mom. Give yourself a break, your house doesn't need to look perfect right now. After a couple months you'll get used to everything, and you'll probably still be overwhelmed, but at least you'll be able to manage. Time WILL make it easier, hang in there!!!

 Take things one hour at a time at this point.  Use any resources you can if you have people who will help you.  You just have to get in a steady pattern and day by day it gets easier.  Hang in there. :)
