Exhausted mom

I am beginning to feel burned out.  Work has been hard lately.  When I come home, I am so tired.  I take a shower, help put the kids to bed then go to sleep.  My kids wake me up early the next morning and I have no energy.  I try to mask my fatigue with coffee and diet coke but today nothing worked.  I really just need some good old fashioned sleep. 

My husband just called and said he was coming home from work early.  He is so lucky.  I can't remember the last time I got to come home from work early.  Yesterday, my work called me at 5:00am to say I had been staff reduced until 1:00pm.  I was so happy.  Both of my kids were going to daycare and I was finally going to have a morning to myself.  But my work called again at 6:30am saying that someone called in sick at the last minute, so I had to go to work.  They also proceeded to give me the worst assignment ever. 

I know I should be thankful that I have a job, but it's hard sometimes. I really need a vacation to help me recharge.  I wish I could have a mental health day.
