Dh had to go to another city to receive an award for excellence So when he came home yesterday and started to pack is when it struck me. I'm as well educated as he is. I worked as hard as he did pre-kids. I thought I'd have a career as much as he does before becoming a SAHP. I enjoy this role most days but sometimes it pinches, like yesterday. He didn't really even want to go and here I was envying him for it. After all, once he got there he'd have a whole day of planned activities (they're going to a play, touring around, then getting ready for a blacktie dinner/award ceremony), coworkers who appreciate all he does, a spot in the limelight when he receivess the award etc. And here I am with just another day spent cleaning bums, getting food on the table even if I'm not hungry, mediating disputes, naptime, you know the rigmarole. With 2 young 'uns it's not like I'm getting any "thank you, person, for taking care of all our needs and loving us. We appreciate you." or anything. I'm sad. Will I ever be content with my life again?
Just a vent more than anything else. Could use some virtual hugs right now
