I work 40 hours a week, Mon-Fri, and once I get off of work, I pick up the kids and become full-time mom. I try to make sure the house is cleaned during the week, laundry done, etc, but it seems like I'm always in a downward spiral. I'm always tired and worn out. After the kids go to bed and if we don't happen to have guests over, I'm in bed by 9 or 10 anyways because I'm taking care of them 99% of the time and then my husband gets frustrated because I'm always tired. I tried going running and working out early mornings, but I miss my sleep, and I haven't been very consistent with it. I don't know what "me time" is anymore... My husband has his friends still call, text, whatever and gets to go out and go out a on a whim, but with me, I never get a call, text, or anything. It seems like once we had our kids, my life has been all mom, no play, and my husband hasn't even changed a bit. (He loves his kids, don't get me wrong). I usually have to call or even ask first and 9 times out of 10, they never follow through. It seems like ever since I've had kids I've lost my social life, my friends, my "me time". Don't get me wrong, I'd do anything for my children but I don't know where to turn. I need me time and some mom friends or something, but I don't know where to start.. any suggestions?
