  • haha...not quite that bad. Cheer up the messy house can be cleaned in a few hours, same with the dishes they can be done very quickly, the poopy sick kids are yours forever. They love you uncontionaly and they count on you to take care of them, You are all they have. You might not feel ike you are in your life but you you ARE their life. Get up Take care of those sick kids, play with them give them a bath. Them they will be worn out and go to sleep and you can have some time to do the dishes and clean. I know it is hard...But if you dont do it, who will???

  • I know. I just fight the urge sometimes to run away. Sometimes I feel ridiculous to feel this way because my husband works 80 hours a week, we have a great relationship, I have a decent job...I love my kids. I just always put the dishes off to play with the kids and then as soon as I see the sink, I'm like....Ohhhh...fuck me I just want to take a bath! But it's not fair for my husband to come home to a dirty house. (Even though he says he doesn't care.) ARGH!!!! I just feel so fucking overwhelmed sometimes.

  • I was the same way. I chose to give up eating out so I could hire a lady for $100.00 she comes and cleans my entire house once every two weeks. I can deal with that.
