Is the grass always greener?

I’m having a not-so-great day.

My DH’s company is cutting our pay 10%. Why? Because they make bad business choices. Not our fault, but we have to take it. We’ve currently downsized to one car so that we could save for a down payment on a house. The money we were going to be saving, is going down the 10% drain. We will hardly have any money for groceries even. It’s a big, big cut. I don’t know what we’re going to do. I never finished my college degree, so it’s not like I have a career to fall back on. I could go get a part time job, but I’m sure I won’t be making more than minimum wage. And, is it worth it, sacrificing family time? What’s the point in having a family if you can’t see them? I can’t bear the thought. It’s what I want to do- I want to be a SAHM. Trials and tribulations and all. I am at a loss here. I know I should be thankful to even have my DH employed, but it’s not enough to support our family. I know I could cut cable next, but if it’s the only form of entertainment we have left, what else am I supposed to do?

I’m in the midst of potty training. I put M down for her nap, and got into the shower so I could “cool off”. While I was in the shower, M came in to tell me she pooped in her diaper. I had asked her MANY times before I put her in her nap time diaper if she needed to go, and each time she said no. I told her if she needed to poopie, to go ahead and get on the potty like she normally does. Instead, she poops in her diaper! I am so tired of changing these nasty toddler diapers! The smell is the worst. Couldn’t she do it when Daddy is home from work?

It just seems like one thing after another. And today, I’m just not prepared to handle it. Such is life I guess.

By the way, does anyone know where I can find one of these?
