One of those weeks....

So it has just been one of those weeks that I am feeling a little low. I don't know if it is my recent return from being with all of my awesome family that has brought this on or the fact that I hate having to leave my sweet son and husband every night to go to work. I know that I got my education and degree for a reason.....actually for this exact reason.....so that I could possibly help my husband through school one day, or have something to fall back on, but as time quickly approaches that I will be having our second baby I am really just wanting to be able to stay home and be a mom. I get so envious of all my friends and family that can do that. It probably didn't help that I worked my normal week and then on wednesday morning I came home and didn't sleep so that I could switch over and my boss called and wanted me to work cause the other night tech had called in sick. So I ended up working the majority of the shift till 3 in the morning and finally got to come home and sleep. The problem was that Jared and I had already made plans to go to the temple early so I didn't get to sleep in. I was really glad though that we went. We haven't been since jared got home cause things have been so crazy, so it was really nice. Plus I know when we make sacrafices like that to get to the temple that we receive so many blessings.
I know that my time will come when jared will be done with school, and have his work and career figured out I just hope that day is soon. I really feel like my main calling is to be a mom.

I know you are "envious" of some, but it is so awesome that you are able to support Jared this way. It's just a short time in the long run and you are such an awesome mom you will have lots of time to do it.

You are a great Mom! It will be such a great day when you can stay home!! Your education has brought such relief to your family I am sure. You can't beat taking off some of that stress sometimes. I am alwasy trying to think of a way to make one of my talents generate money! You have that all built in. Hang in there!

I'm sorry to hear you've been having a down week. You are extremely busy and it would definitely take it's toll on anyone. What you are doing right now is so admirable and you have so many people who love and want to support you. Love you lots and take good care of yourself!

I can't tell you enough how proud I am of you. You "grew up" real fast when you decided to marry at a young age and you have been a true inspiration! I know it feels like forever right now...but try to keep perspective and know what you are doing is so valuable. Jared will be in a position to take care of you and your children very soon...and he'll want to so very bad!

Myca, I could have written this at any time in the last 6 years (yes it took Milo that long). Now I wish I would have it to look back on. I know I technically worked at home doing hair but it was hard to have the kids with me ALL the time, while I was trying to work and keep house. And Milo was hardly ever home when they were awake. I look now and wonder how I did it. I admire you, I know what you are going through (we just finished school in June) and you are amazing to keep sticking it out! I realize the blessings of me helping our income are countless and you will have that badge on your belt too. Hang in there, I'll be thinking of you!! (Sorry about the forever comment.) =)

Honey, getting no sleep will make a week hard for anyone, then with all the work you are doing on top of that! I hope you get to get some rest soon and that you get to feeling better. i can't even believe how hard you are working and the sacrifices you are making for your family. It sounds so hard. YOu can do it myca. everyone is so proud of you.

You are a "mom" you just raised that baby boy pretty much by your self while your husband has been gone. I am so amazed and proud of the woman that you have become. you are one of the Strongest women that I know. I know it's hard to work the night shift and I can't even think what it's like coming home and then wanting to see my family. I wish we lived closer so that we could be there for you. Keep a smile on tha t face and remember this to shall pass. Love you lots -n
