This is how I feel most days... trying to keep my balance, without crashing to the ground. Single parenting is both the best and most difficult thing I have ever done in my life. Most days I feel like I am just hanging on.

I stopped beating myself up a few months ago when I realized that I am doing the best I can. If that's not good enough for some, that's okay. They are not living my life.

I gave up trying to keep my yard in its pre-Isabel condition. Same goes with the house. I'll have plenty of time for that later. For now, I'll continue with the balancing act... and look to my daughter for the inspiration to do so with a smile on my face.

Oh sweetie don't worry , even when you have a husband and your not doing it alone , you somehow always feel like you are just hanging on trust me!! But in reality just doesn't get any better!!! Your doing a great job!!!

I agree with Kristy. It's tough raising kids with or without a partner. I often feel guilty about the fact my house looks more like a disaster zone than a home but like you said, I'll deal with later. It's much more rewarding having fun with my kids than gazing upon a spotless home.
