 I sure do feel for you as I know just how you feel.  I have a 7 yr old, 5 yr old, 2 yr old and a 10 month old.  The two oldest go to school.  The two youngest stay home with daddy all day.  I am in school trying to get my Master's.  I have four classes.  One of them I am Auditing and three are 500 level classes.  Plus I teach so that they give me a monthly stipend and they pay my tuition.  Great deal that I love but it does make me very busy.  Most days I don't go to bed until midnight or later.  You know how I deal?  haahaa, I just don't do many chores!  Seriously as soon as I walk through the door DH goes ok bye and he holes himself up in his bedroom until he goes to bed.  He doesn't even do a quarter of what I did as a SAHM.  But oh well, so the house isn't as clean as I would like it.  blah...I just warn everyone that I'm busy and don't have time...soon I will have time but for now I don't.

Hang in there!  Try to find some "me" time for yourself ever so often.  Even if it's just going to the grocery store ALONE or taking a relaxing bath after the kids are in bed.  Maybe find something that you can let slip a bit such as housework.  I'm not saying don't clean at all, but maybe just cut back.  It will all still be there when you have time for it.
