I work 40 hours a week as a nurse. All day long I give and give to families, patients, and co-workers. When I come home I feel like I still have to give and give, with no one ever giving back to me. I am married and have two boys...13 and 6. My husband works a different shift than I do (I work from 7am to 3 pm, he works from 8pm till 4:30am) so I hardly see him. But, I swear, no one will help clean up and keep stuff clean. I am still expected to make dinner every night, even though my husband wakes up 2 hours before I get home from work. My oldest son has chores but seems to always forget to do them, and when he does remember to wash the dishes he leaves them all greasy so I have to re-wash them. And putting him on restriction doesn't seem to help improve the problem. My house is a mess and I am tired, physically and emotionally. How do the rest of you stay sane and maintain order around you?
