Every year we go out of state to see the in-laws and every year DH and his family hang out at the bars as there way of celebrating the holidays. I don't drink so I'm always left home with the children, which is fine most of the time. But I do have my limits to how much I will put up with, him going out is fine but when it's 4 times in less then a week that's a lot. Him sleeping in until 5 pm and being hung over isn't something I like the kids to see. So I asked him to just lay off a little, but he said that it's his vacation and he's going to do what he wants.

I told him that it's mine too and being stuck at the house all day with nothing to do and no way of getting out isn't my idea of one! Well he said that I'm a house wife, I shouldn't need a vacation. Not having my step son around right now and only having the two younger children to look after should be enough.. Which just made me mad because he has no idea just how stressful being home all day really is. 

We homeschool the older child, I'm trying to finish my online classes on top of dealing with twins who are always sick. Not to mention I keep the house clean and always have dinner ready the second he gets home. It's a lot of work and I need some time where I can relax!

Do you think sahm's deserve vacations or should we just suck it up and get by!?

You do deserve a vacation. I couldn't be married to someone who doesn't value me or what I do. I'm not a sahm but i work 3 days a week and go to school.

Um every one deserves a little down time now and then.

You do sound like you deserve a husband that isn't an ass.

I take vacations. I believe taking time gor one's self is an essential part of sustaining mental health.

I spend every single day in my house. I get out maybe twice a month for shopping. We have four kids. I would sell my liver for a two night vacation to anywhere but here!
