I give up trying to have a holiday, or even a day off. I'm a working Mum, hubby's a stay at home Dad as he has mental health issues. So often he doesn't even make it through the daily chores, I don't mind picking up the slack as he can't help being sick. But when I take a day off or a holiday, is it too much to ask to get a break? Either a kid is home sick, or hubby gets sick (like this weekend - Easter - and though it's not his fault, i'm left cleaning up after a puppy, the kids and running around to get him to the doctor). So over it, i've been looking forward to this break since Christmas (which we moved over) and I just want a freaking rest - or even a few hours where I get to choose what I do!
