I was just going to start a thread about this very thing!
My dh works a lot and we're still so poor. I had a mom at the school my son used to go to say, "Oh, your dh was telling me that he works 7 days a week now (it's actually 6) and my heart just went out to him!" I was like
: 'huh?' What am I supposed to say to that? Do you think she was hinting that I should be working? Also, when people hear he's working a lot why don't they feel sorry for me too? I have to do everything alone, everyday. It's really hard. Dinner, bedtime (with three kids going in different directions
), errands. It can be very difficult to be on your own. I fantasize about being the one that 'gets' to leave the house and kids all day. Anyway, now my dh really is going to work 7 days a week. He's about to start an even crazier schedule and it does make me feel weird.
: I'm not going to leave my baby (not to mention we're homeschooling). I left my 1st a couple days a week to go back to school when he was barely a year. I really, really regret it for many reasons. I don't want to be forced to do anything I don't feel comfortable with regarding my kids, you know? Sorry for the rambling. My point is, I know how you're feeling and I feel that too. I can totally relate.
