Wow...

You guys still check in here? Holy hell....
LOL!
You like me, you really like me...
Okay, so the end of week two as a new SAHM. And I am EXHAUSTED.
I thought coming home from an eight-hour day to start these duties was rough...but I seem to be more tired NOW. (WHY???)
I have always defended SAHM's, I used to be one way back when one paycheck was enough...but yesterday I got into such an argument with Friend's brother. (Not a real argument, but still...) He does landscaping, and yes while I see that that is tiring and all he really had the nerve to tell me that I don't do anything all day.
He doesn't have children.
I saw red as I turned my head to face him, and Friend just started to laugh...I asked him "Do you work after you clock out at the end of the day?" His answer was obviously NO. "Okay, buddy, I don't have a time clock. I am a MOTHER twenty four hours a fucking day, a wife twenty four hours a fucking day, you are a landscaper for ten hours, and then you can take a nap, go out and hang with friends..."
I went on and on.
I forgot how much work this motherhood/housewife thing is.
Still hasn't really kicked in yet, either, my eyes pop open at 6:30 every morning, even though the alarm clock has been changed to 8:30 for Daddy to get up for work. I lay in bed listening to the men in the bed breathe until the alarm goes off.
I'm tired now. I took a break and escaped, left the boys at home together (they are sleeping) and came to my sister's...
*sigh*
I got the book o' classes waiting on my dinner table to be looked at so I can register for classes, I keep looking at it with fear, haven't even opened it yet. I will. I will......soon...
This is crazy.
It' s late, i should go home.

I know. I used to work full time and then I cut back to part time so that I could spend more time with Liv and to my surprise...I am even more exhausted now.

Probably because so much of our SAH lives are spent doing chores that are not ever finished. You go from one to the next and then back again.

When I worked full time, I had more help. Now, it is all me.

Of course we love you, silly. And I think that the SAHM thing was the hardest thing I have ever done.
Probably why I didn't do it for all that long.
