Between working 30 hours a week, raising 3 kids (one being a very clingy, high maitenance toddler) how do you find time to show your DH you love him and that he's important to you? My DH says he does not feel important to me, that I show him no attention. This makes me so angry I could spit! He works in a real city (we live in a rural area where I work) so after work 3-4 days a week he gets the privilege of going to a gym. He goes hunting or fishing on average once a week. If he wants to go golfing with the buddies from work, grant it, it is not often, he does not have to ask anyone to watch the children he just goes assuming it is taken care of. Ask me what I do for myself.......that's right ladies absolutely Nothing! And do I complain about anything he does, no I don't. Not a peep! I take care of the house, except for the odd load of laundry he does, I make sure the children are fed, I make sure babysitters are lined up (my mother and his watch our children while we work). Oh by the way I work shift work so I work evenings and weekends. I get the kids to school every morning, i get them to dance class, karate, dr.'s appt.s, etc. And now I'm being told its not enough. Well I don't feel like I'm giving myself enough attention! I try to show him he's important but there is only so much I can physically do. And right now I'm so mad I don't feel like doing anything which I know won't help the situation so I'm trying to find solutions. How can I squeeze this on to my plate too without exploding!
