Just a job?

Recently I was frustrated with the endless amount of things to do to complete my evening, and my husband simply replied "Treat it like a job, just decide that you are not going to do any more today and save it for tomorrow". Is he referring to motherhood? Honestly? Is that even possible to just stop whatever daily event I am working on and address it later? "Sorry, honey, I can't change your diaper. I have met my quota today". I wish. I don't know many moms who can just let the daily activity dwindle. There is always something else to do....more laundry, clean out this closet or storage area, plan this event, buy this item, read this book, change these linens, blah, blah.

I know that he is aware of what goes on daily, and I see his frustration sometimes when he sees the list of "to do's" getting longer. If this is part of the job description that I missed, then I need to talk to someone in Human Resources, and fast. Now, where is that department?

The human resources department is back by the "Men totally understand" department...and they're always closed!

Ok, that was lame. I was trying to be funny. What I'm trying to say is, "I hear ya, sista."

Amen. That is all I can say. Amen.

I was just having this discussion with my husband a couple of hours ago because it is my cleaning day and I had a bad weekend, so he told me to "just not worry about the house." And then what? I just get to deal with it tomorrow. The magic fairy doesn't visit my house. I would like to know her phone number. Oh wait, that would be MY phone number. :)

I think there is a support group out there somewhere!

I like the new template! I hate the headache involved! I am still trying to replace things. Why, oh why, don't I read instructions well!?! Oh yeah, because I am impatient and distracted! :)

I have never done a MEME before, and I was tagged with one today for the first time. So, I had to tag six more people, and you're one of them!

Don't feel like you have to do it. It won't hurt my feelings if you don't. But, I thought you'd like to know I talked about you and linked to your blog in the post. :o)

Thanks so much for your comment! I know what you mean about it being a small community – I love reading blogs – especially those who are in the same area! =)

We’ve only been here for 8 months, but I feel like it’s been 80 years or so. Though I’ve really enjoyed the learning experience – I really miss the states. =) Although I do think it’ll help once the sun comes out and warms the “rock.” =)

Have a wonderful day!
