One day.

Before you read this you should know what caused it to be written. SJ has had about 6 hours this weekend and 2 hours or more today to work on whatever he has wanted baby free. I just asked for an hour of peace to make bows or blog. When the time came (after dinner) he decided he would go to my parents to work out, figuring my sister L & her bf would watch A for me. They already have Stinky to watch and Stinky was sick so she needed all 3 of us to help. I didn't get that free time, but as he puts it, he made it up to me by bringing me back a Dr. Pepper And he told me that what he does is actually helping us. Not only have I asked for time, I've done all the chores around the house.


One day he'll know, that the laundry doesn't just do itself. It doesn't just walk downstairs, climb in the washer, then dryer, then climb back upstairs and fold or hang itself and walk to where it belongs.

One day he'll know, that the vacuum doesn't clean the floors on it's own.

One day he'll know, our house really does collect dust on shelves and pictures.

One day he'll know, there isn't a dish washer that comes and does our dishes.

One day he'll know the trash doesn't magically move from the insides bins to the outside bin, and that the outside bin doesn't just roll itself to the street on trash night.

One day he'll know that the dog doesn't bathe himself. 

One day he'll know that I really do want my bows to sell, I just need time without A helping me create.

One day he'll know that when I ask for a break, it's only because I really really really times a zillion, need a few minutes alone.

One day he'll know that I really do sometimes just need a nap, without A climbing on me and pulling my hair.

One day he'll know that instead of just sitting down watching tv he can actually do something around the house.

Most importantly, one day he'll realize that my blog isn't just something I do for fun. Its a place that I go to meet friends, to find support, to pour my feelings out. It's something that saved me many times from breaking down and freaking out. He'll know that my blog is "helping us".  Like right now, it's helping us avoid an argument, because I know it's better just to write it out to my friends then to bring it up with him.

I totally had one of these moments yesterday. Little K has been sick and she was up every few hours Saturday night. So Sunday afternoon (after I let him sleep until 1) I asked the hubby to watch her for 1 hour so I could nap. 10 min into my "nap" she was screaming and so was he... I didn't get my nap...

I know exactly how you feel. Sigh. I hope he does know, sooner rather than later, for your sake.

I really hope you get some time for yourself soon! It is so important for our survival. And in turn, everyone else's.

I'm going to give your prompt a try. I'll link up when I'm done!

Oh, I know how you feel! My husband told me months ago that I should take a few hours every Sunday for myself.... Have I gotten to? No. He seems to have plans that take up most of the day on Sunday...

If you get a chance, stop by my blog, I have a little something for you...

Oh, I have all of those complaints too every once in a while. Men are clueless sometimes, that is why I figure it is the women who have the babies ;-)

My husband should really read this! You wrote out exactly how I have been feeling the past couple of weeks!
