DH is in afghanistan, and I swear, everything is going wrong. I've got to mow my lawn, and my riding mower ran out of transmission oil (I saw oil on my chicken after it came out from underneath, and told my FIL, who checked the REGULAR oil, and said I was good... then I mowed the lawn (big lawn) 3 times, and apparently really screwed it up) so I can't use it, and I can't start the push mower (and smashed my finger trying). the kids are driving me up a wall, and on top of it all, I just found out that I can't go back to school this fall, because of financial issues, etc. Anyway, now I feel like I'm coming down with something, and my stomach hurts, my ear hurts and I have a fever. My family lives out of state, from 4.5 hours away to 24.5 hours away... and DH's family is not leaping up to help me. I am tired of screaming, nobody listens anyway, so I'm leaving the kids to their own devices, (fed them dinner, and they are not allowed to leave the house) making them put themselves to bed (I'm too tired), and I'm going to lay in bed and try to sleep... someone please wake me when this is over.
