Need encouragement today!!

Everyone has their bad days, but today has been the worst, and it's only 10:30 am!!!

Last Friday, a water pipe burst in our house, leaving standing water in 4 rooms, and it was literally raining in my finished basement. So we're in a hotel for the duration.... Between new noises and the stress of a different environment, my LO hasn't sttn since we got here, hubby has apparently decided this is vacation for HIM, and isn't helping at all. On top of all of that, I woke this morning with my bum shoulder out of socket completely!! So, I had to grit me teeth, and feed my daughter with my shoulder dislocated, get get down for a nap, snap it back in without screaming..... And now I can't get a let-down while pumping, because I'm hurting, I'm assuming. I'm sooooo ready to break down!

Oh no, you poor thing! I hope your shoulder is back where it should be and things are getting back on track. Any word on rectifying the water situation in your house? And is your husband picking up the slack? Hope things are looking up for you!

Thankfully, my should has remained in the socket (I've had a total of 3 surgeries to try and reconstruct it from a bad car accident injury) but major pain. Insurance company has the house dried, and we're just waiting in the contractor to start work. Thank GOD for homeowners insurance!

Hubby is still in vacation mode. So frustrating. But he's normally very involved, so maybe this is his way of dealing with the stress. I don't know. I am just up to my eyeballs in stress, and I have TONS of newfound respect for mommas who do this solo ALL THE TIME!

I'm just trying to keep my perspective, and deal with each hour as it comes. I'll be SOOOOOOO happy when we're back home! Hotel rooms are NOT meant for babies!

So glad the house is at least dried out. Hope work starts soon on it!
