Ready to Give Up
This week we have encountered the following:
- 3 of 5 people we had arranged to interview for a new nanny simply didn’t show up to their scheduled interview.
- We offered the nanny position to one who actually showed up to find out that she accepted another position a few hours before our offer.
- After a promising start our new house cleaner cancelled on us 2 weeks ago and then this week told us she’s not able to stay long enough to clean our entire house.
- My councilor cancelled on me – she is very sick, I’m trying to be forgiving on this one.
I feel like if we encounter one more flake I’m going to lose it on them. I simply don’t have the time, patience or energy for this.
I don’t understand what the heck is going on.
We don’t live near family and all of close our friends seem to have moved in the last few months so we literally have no-one nearby we can turn to for help. As we don’t live near a support system we pay people to help us so that we can manage. Yet it seems that everyone we pay doesn’t understand basic commitments and responsibility.
Honestly, I’m about ready to give up. I feel like crawling under my desk, curling up in a little ball and crying.
But I can’t. I just don’t have time. So, instead I have to re-advertise for a nanny and I also have to find a new cleaner. And somewhere in all of this we also have to work, take care of our son, clean half our house, fit in conversations with our lawyers and entertain Mr. MPB’s high demand (which means high stress for me) parents who are visiting this weekend.
