Wheels seriously off the wagon this week. Having a complete mare at work and home life is mental with 2 kids under 5 and a pregnant sick wife. Havenít felt as low as long long time. But there is always hope, many a man would love to be in my shoes.

Keep the faith lads, weíll get there.
Do you ever record the kids? It's a great distraction and a fabulous family record for the future.
Keep her lit and best of luck.

Hang in there pj. A great distraction and something to lift the spirits is get down on the carpet and play with the wee uns. Snakes and ladders, toy cars or wrestling about.

I back up what Bennycake says there PJ - my 2 lads and I were in the middle of floor this evening playing a game of snap.  You know the one where all cards are face down and you have to pick 2 to match e.g. 2 tractors etc. Simple but great craic.

A few posts back I said my wife was expecting number 3, well we got the dreaded news this week that we lost the child. Gutting and devastating news for us both after the loss of my mother during the summer. Iíve reached the lowest of the low again but Iíll get there.

Keep the faith.

Really sorry to hear that. If you can get your hands on the Irish Times magazine from last weekend, thereís a really powerful article in it on the topic of this type of loss. You are not alone.

Hang in there PJ, things will turn the corner for you all. As the lads said keep the lines of communication open with others.
