  1. CONGRATS on the baby! How wonderful! Thank you for your kind words. I don't know how old your other children are but maybe they can try to help with some of the basics if they are a little older? Hopefully you will get lots of extra feel good hormones with the arrival of your newest addition I do miss those super hormones ...made me feel like superwoman!!!

    Yes, when I run on fumes I try to tell myself it can only get better again from that low point and that things can only get better. Having been there too many times over the past few years with the deployments and training I am getting better at recognizing when it is stating to happen so I can try adjust so that I don't hit that low. But once in a while it still sneaks up on me and catches me off guard! It is great to have a place to vent and share all the good the bad and the ugly...but hopefully mostly the good!

    I understand how you feel!!!
    I used to work nights, and when dh had his weekends on my weekend to work (which ALWAYS happened) they would often have me work friday night and/or monday night as well. He had class mondays so I would be up for over three days straight easily. My mom would tell me how tired she was when my dad woke her up getting ready for work in the morning (she got to go back to sleep!!!)

    Yea, even when you feel like saying something, it wouldn't do any good. I mean, you could say, "I'm not the best person to receive tired complaints right now," but that's about it :/
    I know everyone can feel tired, but when you are so physically and mentally drained that you are functioning on pure fumes (I feel shakey when I hit that level of exhaustion) it's hard to be empathetic when someone else complains.

    Dh is leaving for Guam for his two weeks when our new baby will be less than two weeks old.... I have no idea how I'm going to survive four kids on my own 24/7....
