Staying at home is driving me nuts.

I am a mother of two, a 3 year old and a newborn, I am engaged to their father & I stay at home with the children all day. Well, I am going completely crazy. My 3 year old has been pushing my buttons nonstop & only laughs when I try to discipline her. It is to the point that even when she is behaving I cant stand her. My son is forever crying. He always needs to be held - by me, or rocked & his eating habits are everywhere no matter how hard I try to get him on a schedule. All day long I am trying to get my 3 year old to behave & running back and forth to soothe or feed my newborn all while cleaning & cooking. I feel frustrated, tired & angry! Then just to make things worse I dont feel like my relationship is going good. He never compliments me or shows any appreciation & we NEVER go out. The only time he really pays any attention to me is when he wants sexual favors. The rest of the time he is home from work he is on his phone which then causes me to snoop only to find out he has been on some silly sight full of videos including some of naked girls and whatnot & when I confront him about him watching the videos of the girls he says he accidentally clicked on it or that Im a crybaby. Or the other day I found him looking at some girls pictures on a social network when she had just posted a picture of how great her butt looked. Him being a butt guy I confronted hin about it & he said he was just looking at her pictures to see her baby and that I am always creeping on him blah blah blah. I just had a baby Im not happy with how I look & having him looking at all these girls makes it worse but then I feel bad for even checking up on him. Basically I am drained at the end of the day & with my newborn I can forget about getting any sleep. I live in a town 2 hours away from all my family and friends so I have noone to talk to or leave the kids with. & just as I am writing this my 3 year old is making a mess out of the living room I just picked up, climbing and jumping on the couches and getting in my face making silly faces despite me telling her to stop about 10 times now...

Please any advice or just words of encouragement to keep from walking out the door or losing my mind...
