I have been so stressed this week.. I do not know what my deal is!!
I feel I need to be the perfect SAHM/Housewife. Since it's summer the house seems to never stay clean.
I have always worked and I think it's so much less stressful when I do work. Then all of the house stuff doesn't just fall on me.
Do you feel you have to be the prefect housewife? That your house has to be in perfect order? If you are "caught" taking a break (IE laying in bed with coffee watching morning news when hubby comes home to get something he forgot, while you kid(s) still in PJ's playing playstation) That happened to me this morning. SO NOW I feel all the things I have planned for today that WILL get done, will not be seen in hubby's eye (as if the daily stuff I do ever is--thinking of the mom's that go on strike).
I really need a vacation because a day off doesn't exist. I have tried to do days off before but I"ve always got to cook or clean something!
I am so glad I have this to vent too!!! thanks for listening/reading :)
Some may think that SAHM's get EVERY DAY OFF... ummm NO we don't get ANY days off. We always have to clean up after someone, cook something and make sure everyone is where they need to be when and where they need to be there. If you have more than one kid you are a referee as well! 7 days a week!
I was lucky enough to have my hubby slow roast a chicken last night and we had leftover potato salad from our holiday BBQ. SO I didn't really have to cook dinner but I still had to clean the kitchen after!
When do you take a day off and what do you do?
I can't take a FULL day off, but today K is at day camp (Long day they are on a field trip today!) hubby is back at work. I did my housecleaning top to bottom yesterday! So today is my "day off"
Here is my agenda:
read (did that will probably do more in a bit)
clean up my computer, free some memory-DONE!
clean up my inbox-DONE!
absolutely nothing but veg out in front of the TV for a bit-Still working on this one LOL
I do have to get some produce, and razors at the grocery store, take some stuff back to the library and check more out, and check on the neighbors cats, bring in their mail and water their plants. All of which I will do after I pick up K. She loves playing with the cats while I change the water, check on food, ect...
