Could you live my life?

We have 4 kids, 11, 9, 7, and 1


DH works full time, M-F 8-5, and one Saturday a month.

I work part time T,F, and Sun as a server in the evenings (no daycare!), go to school full time and take online classes.

DH does no house work, when he gets home from work he is in one of three places, on the computer, on the phone, or watching TV.

During the day, I am off and on the computer completing school work, cleaning the house, doing laundry, cooking dinner (I cook them dinners so all they have to do is heat it up when I am at work), hauling kids to baseball, gymnastics, friends, etc. I also have the baby with me all day.

During the weekends DH sleeps in, now that it is summer he will most likely spend alot of time at the lake with his friends, leaving the kids and me at home. Every once in a while we will meet them down their so the kids can play.

During the weekend I might get to sleep until 7, otherwise my day is the same.

DH drinks ALOT at night, he yells at me, he waits until the kids are in bed (after I have done most the work) to tell them good night.  When we are all home for dinner he will not eat with us, he will wait and eat late (oh yeah that cannot be good for his diabetes.)

I try and eat with the kids, some nights it doesnt work out, but I am in the kitchen helping them out, I do not drink.

So do you think my life is easy, because DH says it is.

Your life sounds very hard and personally if my dh acted the way yours does he'd quickly be out of my life. I honestly feel bad for you.

No only because I would have killed my husband by now. Do you want out?

I could easily do it.  

I was a single mother who worked 2 full time jobs, went to school full time and had no help from anyone.  I took in my nephew because my brother died.  I was 18 when I had my first kid and him and my nephew are a year apart.  So I was 19-23 when all of this was happening.  

I had to make all of our meals on Sunday because I didn't have time during the week.  My son's father is a deadbeat.  

Why doesn't your DH help?  He sounds like a douche bag, I would tell him to start helping or boot him out.
