Sometimes, I want to be taken care of

I'm probably not the only mom that feels this week. Or person, for that matter.

Sometimes, I just want to be able to curl up in someone's arms & be comforted, and have them take care of me. Even the little things. Like bring me ice cream & blankets & whatever I want.

And lately, this feeling has been, at times, overwhelming.

Today is one of those days.

I take care of FireGirl at home.

When FireMan is home, I take care of him.

I take care of the house.

And as the only administrative specialist in an engineering division, that pretty much means that my entire job is taking care of 45 men. Every day.

Even the job that pays me requires me to take care of other people.

Sometimes, I want to be the one that's taken care of.

Like today.

I know the feeling. I'm not a mommy, but I'm a nurse, so I completely understand how it feels to care and care and care for people and not get any in return. It sucks.

I think we all understand. Hope you perk up with the new day. Take care of you, too.

I can relate way too much. Sometimes you need to take a mental health day. Without feeling guilty. And then go and get pampered, even if it's just a haircut or a manicure.

Oh Girl, how I know what you're talking about. I've been feeling that a lot lately, too. It do suck. Verily.

I understand where you are coming from. Between my son,fire department,family, etc I would love to have a day where everyone thinks of me first. I'm taken care of all day. Someone makes all my meals, cleans, makes sure I'm happy etc etc.
