@coffeegal85: I feel like this today. It is my only day off this week and Fiance has the flu. So basically I am doing everything today while he lies in bed. I also don’t drive so I am going to have to bust out my old lady cart and take the bus to the grocery store.

I don’t have a good way to handle it (yet, at least) so I’ll be watching for advice!  Fiance and I have set aside Friday night as date night, so we try to get something done, then have a date.  Like I’ll throw the laundry in so at least I feel like I’m being productive, then we make a nice dinner together, eat by candlelight…move the laundry to the dryer…cuddle and watch a movie, etc.

It’s so not perfect, and it really is one night a week; every other day feels like go-go-go between wedding planning, grad school, job hunting, nesting (we bought a house a month ago and are still settling in…so at least the house hunt is over!), family obligations, etc.

So, no advice, but commiseration for sure!

Yes, I work from home, so I feel like all my to-do’s are in my face all the time. I’m never able to get away from what else needs to be done around the house, and I’m constantly thinking of wedding planning and going back to school in the fall. Definitely feel your pain.

Yes, all the time! But unfortunately, I don’t think I handle it well. Usually, I only end up getting the must-do stuff done, and let the other stuff go. That helps me keep from getting overwhelmed, but it also makes me feel guilty that I’m not getting everything done that I “need” to do.
