I get left behind while DH goes and visits his friends and family an hour away and then stays at his hunting shack. This is no place for kids, no plumbing, no water, very dirty. Of course I can go and clean anytime but I am the sole person who lifts a finger around this house, and it is a VERY SMALL house so there is no money and it is just me and a 6 yr old. He can never watch one thing always dinking around with the remote and the DVR. I am just at my wits end because it is always the same way every weekend. No husband, No money, not a damm thing to do and I just get bored with cleaning and entertaining.
I want to go have the fun everyone else is this weekend!!! I don't want to be doing the same old same old!!

You & me both. My DH loves pool. So M thru F, at least 4-5 days he's out there doing his thing. I have about a 20 minute window from when he gets home from work, changes his clothes, & leaves again. Then he doesn't come home until after 10 or 11. By then I've already fed & put the kids to bed and cleaned up. On either Saturdays or Sunday, he does the laundry and grocery shopping before he goes to play pool. So 2-3 hours he helps out, then off to pool for the rest of the day. He can leave at 10:30am, come home by 4pm, change pool sticks (because you can't use the same pool sticks at different pool halls), and then comes home after 11pm. During the week it's just me and the kids, no car, no nothing. On the weekends b4 kids we used to look forward to doing something. Now it's more like begging or pleading to get out. With being a 1 car / 1 income fam it's hard. Good luck
