Stressed beyond belief

UPDATE: I did finally get Brayden to agree to have his party at McDonalds and we went this morning before work and scheduled it. That is at least 1 major thing I can mark off my mile long list.


The baby is coming in 2, maybe 3 weeks. I have been feeling terrible, and it doesn't appear to be getting any better. Brandt is in T-ball 2 to 3 times a week and on those nights we do not get home until 7:30, then have to eat dinner, and kids are not getting in bed until after 9 or 9:30. They have also decided that this would be a great time for all 3 of them to be awful. They aren't listening well and fighting with each other. My house looks like a bomb went off. The whole livingroom is filled with junk from the garage that we need to go through. The kitchen has bags of groceries that I haven't put up. Brayden's birthday is Monday and I have NO idea what to do for his party. Between his 2 classes there are 22 kids besides himself, then our family, & our friends' families. What do you do with that many kids when you do not have a lot of money to spend and forget it being here, my house is a disaster. He wants to do it at the Bounce, but that is $175 to $225...um no way! We have bounce houses that we could use that belong to us, but we have no where to use them (our yard is very sloped). Then the house is not ready, we still have to texture and paint the walls downstairs, the playroom and baby's room. I have nothing washed for the baby, no where to put it yet. The list just goes on. In the next 2 to 3 weeks we only have like 4 free days/nights...how in the world are we suppose to get done a fraction of what we need. Not to mention there is no one to watch the kids, no parents coming to help, and I am at a point that I need help watching all the boys, but then Dustin can't get anything done. Ugh, please pray for me I am so on the verge of tears.

I would love to be able to help if you would just tell me what and when!!! I'm feeling so stressed and concerned just reading all of that!!!! Don't push yourself too hard or far! Just do what you can and I know you have lots of friends who will help! Ask me!

Kelly~honey I am SO sorry you are stressed! I know the feeling. Please do not over exert yourself to the point you end up in the hospital before its time. Take one thing at a time..dont stress about the house(It will get done in time!) I have been there done that. Can you take a vacation day from work just to catch your breath and get a few things done while the boys are at school/daycare? I am praying for you sweetie...I wish I was there to help you! Plus, Cassidy is a GREAT babysitter.
