It sounds like you’re feeling a bit overwhelmed. I would be to, that’s a lot going on. I would definitely skip brunch with nephew. Do you have to go to drinks on Friday? Maybe just let him have a good time with friends and keep your schedule as planned?

Girl you are DEFINITELY not the only one! Sounds like your sister is pawning your nephew you off on her. You wanted to see her, not just him. There is nothing wrong with saying no given the plans you have going on. I feel like that option. Heck i didn’t go to my big family Christmas because we wanted time for us! 

Any chance your hubs will cancel the Saturday plans due to Friday’s drunken fun? I hope that’s a shot for you to get some down time!

I totally get it. I too am gone from home an average of 12-13 hours per day, with just Saturday and Sunday off each week. I feel stressed out every single weekend trying to cram all my errands and cleaning and cooking into two days, even though I still do minor things throughout the week. I get maybe 2 hours at home each night before it’s time for bed. I barely want to go out with friends because it takes time away from when I need to be doing my weekly chores and errands. I don’t really have any advice, but know that you are not alone!!

I totally understand and I am sorry you feel bad 🙁 I have a 1 hr commute to work and well when I get home I have to fix dinner, do laundry (cuz lets face it, it is not going to do itself), clean up after dinner, do dishes, etc. By the time I have a moment to sit down its like 8pm..and I wanna go to bed.
