Jennifer, moving can be the most physically stressful thing you'll ever do and you've had to do it sick and with two little ones. How much can your hubby help you? As you know, I've been under a time crunch to get my house on the market and I thought it was going to kill me, and I had plenty of help and no kids. But one thing that kept me going was the knowledge that once I moved into the new place I had the rest of my life to unpack. Take your time and take the pressure off yourself. Your priority is a. to get some rest so that b. you can be a strong mom, and c. you can get your home in order. You can't be any good for yourself or your family if you don't slow down and get your strength back. I' call on friends and family, if you have any nearby, to help with the kids for a while so you can get some real rest. The boxes can wait. Early last week I went into panic mode so I finally sat down, took a deep breath and called a couple of friends and said, "help, I need a friend" and they were more than happy to come over and help. It's hard for me to do that but I'm glad I did. If you don't have friends in the area, maybe there's a mother's-day-out nearby. I'm worried about you Jennifer because I don't want you to crash. I hope you're talking with your hubby about all this. Let us know how it's going. I'm sorry things are so hard for you right now.
