time to vent

Today I am crabby.
I am exhausted...
from the puppy getting up several times
from the puppy pooping in my house several days in a row
from the puppy peeing all over even though we let her out every half hour
from having to scold said puppy for being a typical puppy
from Brady waking up in between the puppy waking up
from single parenting all week
from figuring out how to deal with kids who need to be in different places at the same time
from trying to use the quiet hour in my house to do school work
knowing that Thad will now coach a second team for hockey

So...
this dog doesn't fit in my life right now
I like her but I don't love her
I am ready to scream
I am desperate for a night of solid sleep

Yet....
I will figure out how to get the two girls to dance tonight and Ryan to hockey at the same time
I will clean up more poop and pee since Thad will be gone if not at work, then at hockey
I will play with the kids and act as normally as I can. This isn't their problem.
I will get the school work done.
I may have a meltdown by Friday night. That or I will go to sleep by 7pm. That is, if Thad's home.

Awww honey...I wish I could help. let me know if there is anything I can do. I might have a 2 year old tagging along behind me but I'll do what I can.

What can we do to help? I have a fenced in yard and two little boys that would love to play with a puppy on Sat afternoon. Would that help?
