Warning: I apologize in advance if this is a bit rambly, but I have a lot on my heart tonight and hoping someone out here has some good advice/perspective that I could really use to hear.
About 2 months ago My DP and I decided that I needed to go back to work. We NEED the money desperately. DP was working F/T and tried to get a different job that payed more, but hasn't found one, so I needed to quit working the 2 days a week and work F/T. I had been a SAHM/ very P/T worker. Now 5 weeks into my job I am feeling overwhelmed. :( DP works at night and I work 8-5 so we can avoid doing the daycare thing right now. I just don't know how ya'll do it. How do you balance it all? I am feeling like there just isn't enough time in the day/ week for it all. I am constantly overwhelmed by my messy house. My DP helps with the housework during the day, but He also has the 3 kids and works the evenings so there is a limit to what He can help with. (plus I'm a bit more clean obsessed than him. He likes a picked up house. I like a CLEAN house) I express my concerns for stuff not getting done and He says," Its ok, just relax, its just a house, the dirt and stuff will wait" I know He's trying to be supportive but Sheesh! If I relax all weekend when will it get done? Thats my play time with the family and the time I recharge. I come home tired from work and just want to fix dinner and relax with the kids then pull out my outfit for the next day, go to bed and do it all over again. I just am interested in knowing how you all prioritze and find time for the little things in your life...thats all. I guess. Thanks in advance :)
