Ok I know I probably complain alot. I don't mean to but I come here to vent so that's what happens. Now here is my new one. I'm married. I have 3 kids, 2 dogs, a husband and a full time job. I'm friggin exhausted. Here is my day. Up at 5:30. Get dressed, made up, hair done for work with a quick cup of coffee thrown in. Get kids up by 6:30 so we can make it out the door by 7:15. Drop them off at day care and I'm at work by 7:30. Work until 4:30. Pick up kids from day care. Rush home to cook dinner, go thru bookbags, help with homework, maybe throw in a load of laundry. Then it's bath time, maybe a little family time, etc. Most moms on here know exactly how this all goes. But the problems is pressure from family. My sister is a SAHM. She visits my mom almost every day while her kids are in school. So my mom complains and gets angry when I can't visit her during the week. Last weekend I went over her house Friday night and Saturday during the day. That wasn't enough. She was still angry when I wanted to go home at the same time as my dh. We've talked about this alot of times. I've explained to her that she never had to work when we were growing up so maybe she doesn't fully understand how hectic things can get. She said she understands and then she said "guess you'll just have to figure out a way to squeeze more hours into your day because your family is not going to stop wanting some of your time". This was a direct quote. She thinks I should leave work, cook dinner, then find time to go visiting with her and my sister. I say during the week that is impossible and quite honestly I DON'T WANT TO. I'm tired. I want to go home and relax with my family. Isn't seeing parents and siblings almost every weekend enough?! She's at the point where she is being rude and nasty to both myself and my dh because we don't want to go hang out at her house every night during the week like my sister and bil who by the way do it because that way they don't have to worry about dinner at home; they just eat over there. We happen to enjoy our mealtimes with just us and our kids. And my sis is not much better. If I do any activity with another mom and don't invite her she "gets her feelings hurt" and literally CRIES about it. I don't know what to do anymore.
