My husband is TDY here in VB for 10 weeks. My daughter (7 mos) and I came with him because he just got back from a 7 month deployment in November. I have a mini-vent and a question: I'm glad we're here with him, but I am going insane with absolutely no support from friends or family. My husband is busy with his school and has little time to lend a hand (plus, we only brought one car with us so I am stuck at the apartment by myself most days). Our daughter doesn't sleep well - all in all, I get about 3 hours in a 24-hour time-period that I'm not taking care of our daughter or sleeping with her in my bed (she only takes 20min naps and lately I've been unable to get her to bed before midnight, when she wakes just a couple hours later to sleep in my bed). It's absolutely draining me and I really feel that I need to just get out and get together with other moms in the area. I've tried to find some stroller groups, etc., but haven't found any that are active and accepting new moms. Anyone want to get together? I do have a jogging stroller, and would love to go for walks with other moms or take our kiddos to the park. I can borrow the car from my husband if I take him to work early in the morning, so that's even an option, too. Would love to hear from some of you ladies!
