Kids, Life, and Sanity....be warned, i'm introspective again...

....you know, a person in the blogging world has come up across the question on whether you should stay in a bad marriage because of kids. it's amazing to me how much we'll sacrifice for the sake of our kids...and sometimes it comes down to our sanity. some might feel "trapped" in a bad marriage because of children...i'm "trapped" in a job that might not be healthy for me. do i see a way out? not that would be good for my kids, do i. so, i continue to sacrifice bits of my sanity because i can't bear of the thought of what it would do to them if i got some other job. what would i do? could i work third shift? could i find some job that would get us to the poor house because i have to pay a mint in daycare? what do i do? i don't see a good answer to this question. so i do what comes naturally. i put on a semblance of a game face and work like a motherfucker every day because i don't see a way out.

Don't worry girl, someday they'll all three be in school. That's that thing about children, they grow up. Marriage, if it's bad never changes.

Whay are you asking me this? Why didn't you follow my advice the fist time around? I told you to start everyday with a beer! I think you need to charge more money and take in less kids. Soooooo much easier said than done.
