I'm lucky enough to be a SAHM (for the time being) and I love being able to watch my kids grow up and spend every day with them. But having said that... I spend literally 24/7/365 with them and I rarely get a break. I go to the gym for an hour a couple days a week but I have to drag them with me so my time isn't even 100% mine. Everytime I leave the house, they come with me. My SO apparently thinks that I don't need a break or time for myself, yet he can't spend 1 hour alone with both kids w/out freaking out.
I'm just having a bad day cause my SO has been spending every spare second (literally EVERY) on looking for a stupid RV for us (and now fixing the one he found). The kids are at their peak brattiness today and I just want 1 hour (or even 1 minute!) completely to myself! I've been finding myself getting short with my 3 yr old and I feel so bad.
How do you get out of a funk when you're having a bad day?

I get that way on Friday evenings. By the end of the week at work I just need some time to unwind and not have to listen to anyone. The kids are finally learning that Friday evenings are "me" time for mom and dad to just relax together. When they give us this quiet time we are much more likely to have all of the energy we need to devote every second of the weekend to them.
