je n'en peux plus de t'attendre

Hi, I'm wondering why the "de" is included in this line?

Hi Lorie,

It is because this idiomatic expression takes the preposition 'de' before the second verb which is in the infinitive like a lot of expressions in French. 

N'en plus pouvoir de faire quelque chose = To feel sick and tired of doing something

( lit. not to be able to do something any longer )

I hope this helps!
