I need more hours in a day. Between working full time, going to school only one night a week, and studying/reading/doing homework, driving kids to everywhere, and keeping up with housework - I am finding there are not enough hours in a day for me to get everything done.

My dh has been very supportive about me going back to school. He knows that Thursdays is *his* night from dinner to bed. But we may need to discuss his duties further. My class is 5:30 - 10:30. I generally get home between 9:30-10. I come home to a messy kitchen and I still have to make lunches. He complains that he had to feed the kids, take Erin to swimming, and the boys have soccer practice. Then he helps them with homework and study for spelling tests. Then he lays in bed and watches tv. He says he's tired. Welcome to my world.

I think this whole school thing is going to end up being more than he bargained for.

No, I wouldn't shoot you. I created the beast and now having him do a little seems like a lot to him.

I hear you! I also created a beast and boy, it's so hard to get him to do anything. I have two jobs and do ALL the childcare, most of the groceries and cooking and stuff and all the housework (which never gets done).
If he makes dinner I have to thank him profusely and make a big deal out of it or he feels unappreciated. Also, heating up the spaghetti I made and boiling some noodles is not really making dinner.

This is so true! My dh "made" chicken nuggets for dinner. I also have to make a big deal out of it too. He will keep saying "Didn't I do a good job tonight??" Gotta keep stroking their egos.

My kids do clean the house up. Except school nights they mostly aren't here. No one is really home much during the week so on Saturdays I have been handing out job lists. I can't do it all.

Well I don't work outside of the home but I go all day long. I don't take time to rest unless I'm feeling super sick so it annoys me like you wouldn't believe when hubby tells me he's going to do something and then comes home and sleeps. There isn't much time between dinner and bedtime so why does he need to sleep? Get something done while you can! Then he complains that he has so much to do because he puts everything off until its too late. OH and then he expects me to compliment him when it took 2 days to tape one part of a wall! (He is taping the edges so he can paint)
