I never have enough time!
No matter what I do or when I do it, it always seems like there is more to do than the time that I have. It is starting to drive me insane! I thought that when I quit working that I would have more time to get the stuff done that I needed to, without rushing around, or being late doing it. Boy was I wrong! It seems like to me that I have less time than ever to get stuff done. I got to get up, feed the kids, clean up the mess, get them dressed, get myself dressed, make sure hubby has all he needs to go to work. Then I gotta clean the house, wash the clothes, IRON the clothes, which I hate doing might I add...... Make sure the bills get paid. When hubby gets his break or is off work for the night, of course he has to get some attention, that most of the time I don't even have the energy or desire for. All the while, I have 2 screaming kids that do not want me to do any of it! When can I get a break??? When can I have my time alone? No one can understand this, unless they are a mother. Whether they stay at home OR work, either way, there never is enough time. Ya know, when I was working, it seemed like I did get a little more done, but the price to pay was the time with my kids. I rushed them off to the sitters, then on lunch I could pay bills or run home and clean what I needed to clean, then when we got home in the evening, I would feed them, bath them, then put them to bed, BUT where was OUR time together? We never had any. So I do NOT regret quitting my job, even tho, now it seems I have less time than before. I guess these are the prices you have to pay for motherhood! :-)
