I was a stay at home from since Sept of 2008. I have 5 children and just recently went back to work 2-3 days a week (8-5). I am also in school one day a week with online lectures. My DH is going out of town Sunday until the 20th of Feb. so we'll see how this works out with trying to get all the kids taken care of on the days that I will be working. My dad is helping out alot by getting the oldest 4 off of the bus for me. It's getting sooo stressful. House chores are getting behind.

I work 8 to 5 monday - friday and I hate being away from my daughter 10 hours a day. I just hope someday I can be a stay at home mom.

My DH really tried to help with laundry yesterday while I was at church. He did a good job though.He has never had to do laundry before. We have to do 4 loads a day just to keep up, if not, it gets crazy!!

I can say, my DH does an equal, if not more, laundry than I do.  He is a great husband! Supper is done with I get home but we are both overwhelmed!  He decided yesterday to rearrange his schedule so that he doesn't have to work any Saturdays in the month of Feb so we can get caught up on sleep, house and us!

I work 30 hours outside the home. At the moment I am working around 36 b/c we are short handed. I work M-T 9-4:30 and Friday's 8-5pm. I hate working outside the home and have been trying for over a year to find something else to do inside my house for income.
