So, you know those wood signs you can find everywhere now with all kinds of sayings? Well I found one that made me realize I might not be alone... "I'd trade my husband for a housekeeper."
My daughter Isabelle is 6 months old. She's healthy and beautiful and developing so fast! I feel awful complaining when I have so much that's good, but I wish I didn't feel as though I'm by myself all the time. I work full time and have so little energy when I get home. I grocery shop, cook, clean, do the dishes, make our daughters baby food, and do the laundry. I'm not the best at keeping on top of things but I think I would do better and it wouldn't all be such a chore if I felt like I had help. My husband works long hours as well, and I understand that, but should I really have to ask 10 times to get the cat's litter box emptied???! On top of everything, he's getting pushy about the sex thing. I mean really.... my libido is low enough at the moment and my energy is non-existent. Who would be able to just "turn it on" like a switch with everything else going on? ::Sigh::
Okay. I think I feel better, just needed to rant that out a little. But does anyone else here feel this way? Any recommendations on how to bring this up with him and try make things better? I'm afraid that I going to get to the point that I'll just explode and not be able to take back what I say.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
