I’ve given up trying to sleep,
Done away with the idea of hitching a ride in the hotel lift,
Eaten most of the ketchup crisps
Smoked far too many cigarettes
1. a severely depressed (ex) husband who is minding the kids while I’m on a short but long planned and awaited/desperately needed girls-time-out holiday
2. an (ex) mother-in-law suddenly on life support in a hospital far away in another part of the world
3. me, but for how much longer?
….. and then you wait for dawn to arrive to try and catch an early flight home….
back to being the only support accepted by said (ex) husband
Back to having to think not just for three but more so four “kids” now
Back to major house renovating works
Back to a more than stressful job on long hours
But hopefully not
Back on another plane to make funeral arrangements
Did I mention life sucks?
