Having a hard time manage stress

Sheena - posted on 01/28/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I need help how to manage my stress level. I got into nursing school which is 2 hrs. away from home and I only have 6 months left. I have 18 month identical boys at home and my parents and husband help a lot. I just need to find a way or any suggestions you guys might have how to fit some mommy time. I'll give you a timeline how my two week schedule is usually like

Monday-Fridays get up at 430AM to get ready for school
- 530 leave the house
- 7AM drop off my mom to work
-715 drop off my husband
-730 drop off the boys to the baby sitter
-800 drive to school
-11-1130 lunch
12-2PM class
2-4PM study at school
4-430 PM pick up my sons
5-530 Pick up my Mom and husband
Traffic on the way home
7:30 Home
30 minutes to relax
8-830 boys a bath and change
9PM put the boys to bed
10:00-1030 shower
1030 midnight study

Leave house at 6AM
Work 7AM - 3PM
315-345 pick up the boys at the babysitter
Commute going home
6PM home

This life is hectic and I'm in so much stress I don't know what else to do. I don't have any alone time with my husband I just fought with home because I tried to communicate with him the need to help me. I mean I love my husband and he helps
A lot but sometimes I wish he can just do things automatic without me telling him what I need him to do.

Is your husband at home on the weekends or does he work as well?
Yes, your life is hectic but you only have 6 months left of study. Is there any reason why you also work so far away from home? Do you have to work weekends or can you survive the next 6 months on just your husband's wage?
