Do you find yourself trying too hard to get everything done around the house? Do you feel as though you have to do it because you\'re the Mother?
Sometimes I feel like I\'m a bad Mom if everything isn\'t perfect, but then I take a deep breath and I remind myself that my kids won\'t remember that the house was clean, they\'ll remember that I spent time with them and tried to make them as happy as I could.
I burned my candle at both ends so to speak and it caught up with me..
I stay up all day with no rest and then work 12 hours all night and then I'm up all day again with no rest and it's really starting to get to me....
And everyone around me acts like its so easy... I don't see them functioning on no sleep.. on a weekly basis...
I'm getting remarks because I've been buying those basically ready made dinners you just mix the ingredients together and cook on the stove... I'm too tired to cook anymore...
So i think when it comes to me, part of my problem with trying too hard is because I feel everyone has such high expectations for me that I can't seem to meet.[/b]
Wow!! I can't believe that you were still functioning after all that. I know I'd be a mess!! I hope you're not still working that crazy schedule! I would hate to see you crash and burn. GET SOME SLEEP!!!
I don't think i try that hard. I just think i feel a little pressured to always have it clean because DH complains if its not. I really don't feel like hearing it.[/b]
Ugh! Men can be so uncaring at times. It's like they don't realize what they're saying when they say it. I'm sorry you feel that way. I found that you can't please everyone, so try pleasing the people that it matters most to.........your kids! Who cars if it's not done?! You know we don't!! I think that we do the best we can, and that's all that matters.
