Maybe it is my age, I am 43. Being an older mother helps in many ways except in the energy department. I haven't been eating right, when I don't get enough sleep I try to compensate by eating junk food. I have a couple of things causing mental stress at home as well, that I won't get into. We also had to get rid of our dog of 9 years, he was not being nice to the young children, and we think Hannah is allergic to him. Whatever it is, I need a break!
I just want to run away for a few days, just me, even if it is to a local hotel to sleep for two days! But How? I have no one that could take care of my children for that long, my mother is too old, my husband can't handle it, and my older daughters have work or school. I have never left Sierra with anyone other than close family, and she usually doesn't do well in that situation anyway, especially overnight.
I remember hearing about "Mommy's little helper" pills, I think they were Valiums, I understand why the mothers took them now.
