I am losing my mind!  I am working on projects for my computer class and they just won't go right.  My son is into everything and my husband is working.  I am so stressed out I was in tears.  Any good ideas to destress?

Have sex...no I'm just joking.  Take a few minutes away from you project and just chill.  Sit on the floor Indian Style, close your eyes and take deep breaths inhaling and exhaling.  Try this for 10-15 minutes and it may help. Then have sex tonight before you go to sleep.

Now weeks later, so won't help that time...but thoughts for next semester.


I have been there done that...it ended up taking about 50 times longer than if I would have just waited until the kids were asleep or I could leave the house.  I CANNOT work (think) when my kids are around.  Is there a friend you can swap playdates with (and study when your son is away) or an older neighbor that would like to come play?  As best you can, schedule studying around naps, sleeping, and when daddy is home (leave the house for a couple hours to study when daddy is home...he can deal with it)...and stick to it.

i make lists they help me get my stuff done and checking stuff off makes me feel less stressed....i say get ur stuff done and have some wine/beer/drink of choice, a hot bath, girl porn (aka cosmo, elle, what not) and dont think about school for as long as you can stand it.

Get your son and take a bubble bath together!  I love a good bath and spending a few minutes with my son always relaxes me. Plus he might be ready for a nap afterward!  Good luck!
