I cook, I clean, I volunteer at the school.
Just because I'm a SAHM doesn't mean I'm not busy. It would be a wonderful thing to have the husband cook dinner once in a while or take over homework duty. I'd ask him to take over bath duty, but the last time I asked for that, his eyes bugged out and his head started spinning. I'm not sure he ever wants that chore again!
I don't want anyone to think that the husband is ignoring us or taking advantage of me. He's not. If I ask, he will be there. But it would be nice to have the house cleaned or dinner cooked without asking. Especially this week when I am pulling my hair out trying to make a deadline.
The reason the husband doesn't jump in and help as often as I would like is because he works. He might not admit it if you asked, but he's a work-a-holic. Even when he's laying in our bed instead of sitting at his desk at the office, he's working. Sometimes it's actual work stuff he's doing. Other times it's one of many side projects. Some for pleasure, some with the intent to make some extra money.
I wish I would have known about his work habits going in to our marriage. It would not have stopped me from marrying him. We really are two peas in a pod. But fair warning would have been appreciated.
With the way our schedules are right now, it's not possible for me to work outside of the home. I love being a SAHM, but sometimes I wish I could contribute financially. I do have my days where I want to scream at the top of my lungs.
HELP ME OUT!!!!!
But I know the husband works damn hard to be able to provide for us. I am so thankful that he not only has a job, but has a good one.
I am also thankful that those around him also recognize his hard work.
Yesterday the husband had his yearly review. I can't believe he's been with this company for 4 years now! Not only did he get a great review, but he also got an awesome raise.
This week, we shall celebrate.
Next week it's back to screaming and pulling my hair out.

Even though I don't think this post is debatable,
I love a good debate.
So please tell me what's on your mind.
Until next time....
