I’ve been a Stay-At-Home Mom for a few years now and loved every minute of it. I got to watch my kids grow, I learned how to cook, picked up a couple hobbies, even started exercising.
well I’m back in work now and having a really hard time juggling anything. I work Monday through Saturday 6am-3pm. I come home and am with the kids until my husband gets home from work. He works Monday through Friday 8am-7pm. Kids are in bed by 9pm.
I haven’t exercised since I started working. I used to wake up at 5 every morning to go on a run. I now wake up at 5 to get ready for work.
I used to have a spotless house, I’m now having to throw out old food from two nights ago. My laundry is never done and piles of clean and dirty clothes throughout the house.
I used to spend hours cooking and loved it. I now only cook a few times a week. When I do cook I have to clean the kitchen first and clean after as well making the cooking process a minimum of T hours every night.
no one picks up after themselves. No one cooks. No one puts away their laundry. I’m the only one. Me and the Nanny. I can’t stand the filth!
I do all of the shopping, I do the doctors appointments, I do everything and jm exhausted. I loved doing it before but I wasn’t working so much, and I don’t get a break during my 9 hour shifts.
I dont think my husband realizes that I can’t do what I used to do. I am on my feet every minute of those 9 hours and I’m too exhausted to do it all. So I ask my husband if he wants to cook to help and he brings home fast food every day.
I ask him to do the dishes and they just sit there. I do 8 loads of laundry and put all but one away and ask him to and its still sitting there so days later.
he has ADD and I knew that when I married him but jeez!
I ask him for help all the time but he always seems to forget.
please dont bash him. Just how do I get through to him without making him feel like I’m nagging?
how do you work over 50 hours a week and still take care of two small kids, chores, and cooking? How do you not pull your hair out?
I also have about three meetings a week with our church. I know this is a bit much and it wont be too much longer but I feel like I need to finish what I started.
I’m gonna crack, I just know it.
