solo parenting

It has rained a lot this week, the sky is grey the mood is gloomy and the earth is wet. I don’t really know is it because of the weather or it’s just me but I feel a bit low and lonely especially these past two days. You know that I always hate week-ends when I am solo parenting. I feel envy and sad if I see a family cheering up at basket ball game or footy games or even dining together at the restaurant. I feel like I am the only one without a husband, which is not true!

I don’t always feel like this way though. During the week I am fine, though I am busy juggling everything and being a mum’s taxi here and there but I don’t feel miserable. Come week-ends I am moody and I often feel sorry for myself, blah!

When the father of my children is in town we don’t always spend week-ends together, because sometimes I have to be at the swimming competition with twin 1 while my husband has to take twin 2 to basket ball game. And I like the boys to spend more quality time with their daddy while I am having a retail therapy, such as ๐Ÿ™‚ So it is not like I really depend on him for everything. I am quiet an independent and capable woman by the way.

So, what is wrong with me and the week-ends? Do you often feel like this too? Or I am just a damn mama with too much manner!?!

Anyhow, today is Monday, the week-end is over so I hope my week-end blues will be done and dusted… until the next episode. And it’s going to be a long week-end this week but I won’t be alone for my partner in crime will be home in five more sleeps…..yaaay to being together again! ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚
