Does anyone else dread the weekend

My kids are at a particularly challenging age atm. I am a sole parent and i dread the weekend because i know i have to deal with everything alone as well as try and study with hardly any sleep due to mr 2 not sleeping (which is nearly impossible ). Im feeling overwhelmed. The constant fighting and crying and clinging to my leg drives me insane. I just need one day to get myself sorted. Saturday gives me the monday feels.

I wake up everyday with dread. Love my kids to bits but all such a hard age at the moment. I don't get a single break from the whining and complaining and crying. It's ridiculous.

I have a 14 year old neighbor girl. I pay her to come over and hang around with my kids while I study, clean and meal prep. I'm right there, but its a huge help. She gets some baby sitting experience for when she's old enough, and makes a little money. It's more affordable than a sitter and less stressful than having my mom.

 My mum is stressful too haha

 Right!?!? My house is never clean enough, my kids are too (everything), my food not healthy enough... I would rather just deal with the kids than that.
