I am still alive

I was doing good with my blogging, but have slipped up again. I have pretty much been a single mom for the past four days and it is kicking my butt. Damian has been up and out of the house working before we get up and working until after I put the kids to bed. I am tired, and grouchy. It isn't that I don't love my kids or enjoy staying home with them. It is just that I never get just a few minutes to myself. I try to tell myself that it won't be like this forever, but it doesn't work. Damian thinks that me going to the grocery store at 11pm at night is me time. I think that is what annoys me the most. When Damian is home, I still am the one doing almost everything. I feel bad for him because he works so much. So I let him just do his own thing. But it starts to bother me later. I know he works hard, but so do I. I can't keep up. I am drowning in this cluttered house and it seems like I just can't stay on top of it. Ok, vent over. Instead of blogging I could have probably done the dishes.

  1. I know the exact feeling! You know he's working so hard when he's away from home but the minute he walks through that door you want help!!! And when you're still doing it all on your own you get a little bit bitter and then it all starts to build up. Grocery store at 11pm is def not you time! "You time" would probably be sleeping!! lol.

    Hubby and I started a new "plan" where he spends the last half hour with baby and then puts her to bed when he gets home. And then on the weekend he spends at least part of the day entertaining and watching baby every day to give me a break.... now with two kids that's more of a challenge.. but I think he could do it! Maybe you guys could set up a time every week at the same time where he is in charge and you leave the house and do what you want... something relaxing like a massage or something. Forget the dishes and the clutter, check out for an hour or two. It'll save your sanity! Once a week is better than nothing at all... and half an hour or an hour at night really isn't too much time to ask for... Good quality father/kid time! :)
