They sounds like jerks
They sounds like jerks
it is so nice to finally read that someone else out there is feeling the same and i am not the only one. my hubby is away for 6wks and home for 1-2weeks. it is so exhausting trying to fill all the gaps. our daughter is 20mths.
i am in melbourne and would love for our daughter to have more playdates and coffees for me.
Bah, it's early in the am and DD has me up
There is still a week till DH gets home and unfortunately still no buyers on the home front. My agent is taking the weekend off so I thought I would get this weekend off but I got phone call yesterday and someone wants to come through today. Bah!
To make things worse our offer on the house we planned to buy expires on Monday and the owners have suddenly decided to take the house of the market and stay there instead of waiting for us like they planned! So no I have to start house hunting again!
My baby sitter quit and my roof is still leaking and I am quickly running out of silver lining
I know it will all work out but it does make menfeel better knowing you ladies get what I'm feelng right now
I'm thinking I should just start cleaning now lol and I hope your all doing well
You poor thing. I can totally sympathise. My DH just finished a 4 and 1 roster that he had been doing all year to move to a 2 and 1 roster. The 4/1 was just so hard and exhausting and the 1 week at home always went too fast.
Have you got plans in place, like an end date to FIFO or something in the future to focus on/look forward to after the house stuff is completely.
Lol our future is a long way off. After we move we will continue saving until the kids are in full time school (4 more years) and buy a couple of rental properties.
We bought our first home when we were both 19, first child at 21, second at 23. So we figure we have already made so many sacrifices that we may as well go all out and set ourselves up in a position to enjoy life when our kids are grown.
Two on one would be sooooo lovely though, I know what you mean about the week going too fast!
I'm glad for you Timestwo though to at last get that chance after four on ones, I'm jealous

It sounds like you have some good plans in place. While its hard now, the hard work will pay off for you in the long run!
2/1 is lovely I must admit. We were resi for 5 years which has been great in getting started in life but I wanted to come home to be near family and he has been doing FIFO while he looked for local work. DH skills are more mine based though so we are going back to resi in the next few months so I have resigned myself to the fact that we will probably live remote forever now.
If you ever get lonely, feel free to contact me, Im probably feeling the same!
I am 40 and 24 weeks with my first! It's a boy..Sam, Ha how organised am I?
I was single for a long time before I met my partner who works in the mines last year. It was the perfect relationship! one week on one week off, so I got my space still which I was used to. I work long hours in a professional job, and travel a lot, so it really suited me.....
Until now...LOL, I am starting to worry about how I am going to cope with a new born on my own...much like a single mum I guess, I don't have any family close but the IL's are very supportive.
Anyway I am here if anyone wants to vent....better out than in I say ..
You do feel like a single mum. If you have the support of great friends and family it makes it a bit easier

When life looks like it's falling apart, It may just be falling into place
