I've only been alone for 3 hours since school got out. For a hair appointment Thursday. This small house, the impossibility of keeping it clean while we're in it all of the time, the weather which is either too hot or rainy, the lack of free indoor things to do, and the constant noise/requests/fighting are starting to make me completely crazy.
Every day is exactly the same. With cleaning, working out, and mediating
fights (and I hate all of these things). Throw in some extra kids and a few outings and it really
doesn't help that much. And laundry, oh sweet baby Jesus, the laundry.
Mr. Ashley is on call a lot, so I can't even escape when he's not at work. He's kayaking today with some friends which is nice and all, but I've only been in my own kayak one time since I can never get away. Summer is more difficult money-wise too, so affording the occasional sitter for the sake of my mental health just isn't feasible and everyone I know is busy.
I just had to shout from the rooftops that I'm going crazy over here. How am I lonely when I'm literally never alone?? I'd gnaw off a finger to go see Magic Mike with some girlfriends.
Or just to sit somewhere quiet alone for a minute.
