Well last night after having done all the cleaning, cooking and all other stuff (yes I even had time to play with the kids), I sat down, had a couple of glasses of wine with my husband and just relaxed.

Today well go iceskating and have a nice familytime, hopefully we all get back home in one piece *lol* Thanx for the chat! :)

Hi Linda -- thank you! Yes that is my family. :-) It's nice your husband helps like he does. I have a helpful husband as well. But it's also important for you to take time for yourself once in awhile -- (I'm one to preach) Since this is something I tend not to do myself very often. Although I did take a shopping trip with a girlfriend of mine a few weeks ago for a whole day just the two of us which was nice.

I know I do some nagging myself but I try to watch it because then it puts them all in a crabby mood.

It's nice we have this outlet to vent on each other isn't it!!!

Well my husband washes the clothes and I'm in charge of cleaning the house. As I get home by six in the evening there isn't much time for keeping the house tidy. :(

That means: all saturday (almost) goes to cleaning the house and nagging at the children so they clean their own room. My husband is studying at the moment so he gets home sooner than me, picks up the children from kindergarden and makes us some dinner.

I think the major damage is done in me actually. Since there is no own time for me, I tend to nag a bit at my family from time to time. :S

By the way, nice pic, I assume it's your family?

I know Linda -- it's really not easy is it! Wow 10 hours a day - that's a lot. How do you get things done at home? I know my house pays the price -- and I've just had to let that go! I don't like it but what can you do. And it drives me nuts!! I do work full time but I only work right down the road so I don't have a commute.

Must say that no matter how I try, I either gain a bad conscience for my kids staying too long hours at the kindergarden, either for not keeping up with work colleagues! How do you cope with these issues? I work 9 hrs a day and live 30 min from my work, gives 10 hrs away from home every weekday. *sigh* Still I love my children AND love working!
