I thought it would be great my husband having a job in his chosen career field. But it is not. Don't get me wrong I love when he is home and spends time with us. And I understand he has paperwork to get done. I just hate when he uses it as an excuse to not spend time 5 minutes with me. stating "I need to get this DONE!", then taking a break to go hang out with a friend when he can't deal with his own family. He's only had this job since the middle of April 2013. But already our marriage and family are suffering (not money wise). And when we did get to spend time with him at a school picnic. I got more help from complete strangers than my own husband. And he's the one that gets "so frustrated" when at home. I do the cooking, the cleaning, the up at night with babies, working on firsts with all our kids. When he's at home I try to occasionally get "me" time. But that's a no go when he is home. I get more help from my mom and her boyfriend. I figure if he's home he can help with something. I am lucky he brings the kids down for breakfast and gives them breakfast. We go out my kids and my mom and her boyfriend. People have seen my mom's boyfriend out so much with them they think he's daddy not my husband (till I correct them thing is if he actually did spend time out when home with us they wouldn't think it). I want the happy go lucky guy I first married and fell in love with. I didn't give a darn about any money he made. But I believe we were happy.
