I work out side the home,as a Grocery Vendor Merchandiser. ....I work for Schraad n Associates. ..and I also work for Acosta sales n Marketing...

Then the only time I have to breath is the weekends...So i clean house ,wash clothes,vacuum n sweep floors,clean litter box,take out the trash. ...

Tell me there is more out there than this....

Has anyone seen the movie....MOMS NIGHT OUT...Great movie....I've watched it 5 times in the last two days...

I think I need to plan a Mom's night out.

You have to plan time for yourself-- there is no "me time" fairy who plans it for you..

You need to make time for yourself. It is very possible to find a balance between motherhood and being yourself and having a life.

I'm a about to be a new mom plus working full time and taking car of the animals but I always tell my husband "when you die do you want to be remembered as having a clean orderly house or something more?"

My life is about to change drastically but I won't allow our home to take over my life....

Take one night a week where it's "you time."

Nothing in your post says absolutely anything about motherhood.  All you've described is work and housework, so where's the surviving motherhood part?

If you don't have an SO to help with the housework, use some of the money you earn to hire a cleaning service.

I love "Moms Night Out" and "Single Moms Club" both great movies.
I had to force time for myself, my husband helped encouraged me to.
We also get couple time in!

This! No one is definitely not going to do it for you.

Don't think just go! What's there to think about? How old are your kids?

A few yrs ago I realized other moms I ran into at drop off or at sports were always saying, gee , we really need to have a moms night... and nobody ever planned one.. So I sent out an Evite for moms in the scout group first.. we now have been having at least twice yearly nights out since.. did the same for neighborhood moms after I started working full time as before my house had always been the gathering place for play dates and coffee klatches.. some moms are in both groups...not everyone comes each time and out of those groups I meet up with some individually for breakfast before work or a hike on the weekend. It wouldn't happen if I didn't take the initiative..
