Here's it's similar - organising our little ladies in breakfast, lunch, dinner, clothes, showers PJ's, solving arguments and answering many questions, planning playdates and activities, working out to precision timing how much washing I can get done today and still eat, and the not-so-occasional disaster of egos that is twin 3.5 years plus a 5 year old into the mix.
There is a distinct differences:
"They" don't listen here like they do at work.
"They" question my directions more often here, and never with anything that actually challenges me beyond that of my temper
I get paid in hugs and kisses and I love yous more than that payslip you don't really look at.
I've come to the conclusion that I need something for me. I don't know what it is yet, but I need something. I don't want something that will make my life more hectic. Part-time work in my industry just is a fantasy at present and I don't see myself over a potters' wheel or yoga class. Not.me.at.all. Don't have money for retail therapy.
I think maybe a day at home to myself - ask Hubby to take the kids somewhere for 1/2 a day every/second weekend? I could sew, I could sleep. I could foreseeably get my runaway eyebrows under control. I just miss the alone time - just the hour each way commute to and from work to have the 'vege out' to just think things through without interruption.
I think I'm going to see what he thinks, he was sympathetic last night... might have to 'return the favour' though... it could work.?
