@Mrslovebug:  Your job is 10 hours a day? That’s insane. Personally, I would take something part-time. You will burn yourself out! If money isn’t super tight (it would just be extra money on the side) wait it out for something part-time. Love, Another Bee that Takes on Too Much.

You have a lot on your plate. I was also in a similar situation where I would volunteer, work, support family etc. My husband helped me realize what is important though. So slowly started to take a step back and resigned from the responsibilities. I would try to leave on a good note so that you dont burn any bridges. I miss doing some of those things but also appreciate my less stressful life. 

Take a step back and list three or five priorities in life and maybe make your decisions based on that.

What is more important to you?  I think you want to quit but feel guilty about doing so.  Seems like church and school and volunterring is important to you and since you only wanted pt, talk to your boss and let them know that you would prefer pt.  Give them a timeline of when they need to find someone else to fill in the other hours so you can go part time and if that is not an option, I would give my notice.

You and your DH are a team. Can you not look at it as his money but your money since you are working together? If you can financially do it as a team, cutting down to part time or even taking some time off right now might really help you.

I think you need to tell your job that you can only work part time or find another one that will accomidate you.  Roxy is correct though, you and your DH are a team.  It’s not his money or your money but it’s both of your money.  You are watching the children/child and that is just as much work as any other job out there.  The most important thing is to take care of you, otherwise you can’t take care of your kid or anything else that comes along.
