Not enough hours in the day!

Our Day starts at 5:30 a.m. I get up, shower, let the dogs outside, fix breakfast, wake my husband up for the third time and get dressed. Out the door at 6:00a.m. for our 45 minute commute.

I spend from 8:00am-5:00p.m. in my cubicle at work, quoting away and managing the chaos that is my job.

Then it’s off to pick up my hubby from work and go home.

We are literally gone from 6:00am- 7:00pm. That’s THIRTEEN hours if you weren’t keeping track. I spend more time away from home than I do at home!

And the sad part is, that’s only my first shift.

Any wife knows your job isn’t done when you clock out. There’s still supper to cook, clothes to wash, dogs to feed, and any number of other things you have to do before you can crawl into bed every night. And moms have the never-ending jobs. Their little ones keep them going well into the wee hours.  Honestly, moms, I envy you in ways you couldn’t imagine…but that’s another topic for another post.

By the time i get everything I need to do done, it’s 9:00 and I’m ready for bed. Time is literally going by so fast, it’s all a blur! If it’s this fast now, how will it be when we have babies of our own? I already feel like I don’t have enough time, will I have time for them?

It’s already 9:00 here, and my dogs are whining ready for bed. I have laundry in the wash, dishes in the dish washer, lunches packed, and dogs fed. I’m ready to crash out but first I have a confession:


I love my life, my husband, my job, my dogs…but sometimes it feels like it’s too much. Like I’m just caught in a current and going against it is too much work. Every day is the same old thing, and by the time the weekend gets here, I need Saturday to catch up on all the things I couldn’t do during the week and Sunday is my only day off. I’m thankful for my job, don’t get me wrong. But I know someone out there feels just as overwhelmed as I do. I shouldn’t complain, but how in the world do yall manage to not feel like you’re in over your head?

I’m gonna go try and get some sleep. Maybe tomorrow will bring a less stressful day! G’Nite everyone!

    FYI – When you have a baby/babies, clothes don’t get done til the weekend and most of the time they don’t get folded for a couple weeks, the dishwasher only gets loaded when you need everything in your sink but it’s dirty, cereal is for dinner most of the time (unless you are out of milk), lunch doesn’t get packed because you roll out of bed with just enough time to put clothes on that don’t hardly fit and rush out the door so you can eat breakfast at work.

      That sounds about how it is now with my overgrown man child. My spare bedroom is a mountain of laundry that we just dig through to find what we need for the day, my kitchen got cleaned (and by cleaned I mean dishes washed) only because I needed the pans that have been soaking for the past three days…I know babies make everything more stressful, more hectic…which is probably why we do not have one yet. We havent figured out how to co-exist in a house together, even after two years! Once we get some sort of routine down, hopefully things will be smoother. But for now, I’ll revel in my chaos 🙂 And your baby is BEAUTIFUL and silly and as of now, MOBILE! Eventually, you can tell HER to wash the dishes. 🙂 lol Thank you for the comment.
