As if on cue...

Despite feeling well yesterday morning, the day went downhill pretty quick. First, I developed a severe migraine, and, although I was able to take my medication fast enough to overcome it, I was down for a good 2 hours. During that time, I still had to watch the little ones, not an easy feat.

Then the van battery was found dead - again! Very frustrating. I had to ask a neighbor for help - again!

Then, when I complained to hubby, he went off on me, saying that he couldn't trust me and obviously the kids were running amok and the house was falling apart. I was SO SO SO upset! I get NO credit for how difficult it is to be responsible for the house, kids and work, by myself, when he is out of town working. Not to mention the fact I have NO friends or family within 600 miles of where we live.

Even later, when he had calmed down, he insinuated that taking care of kids and house is done by all mothers and why should I complain when they don't? Also, that my resentment of him having to work out of town is making it difficult for him to do his job.

I really dislike that man sometimes. And I never realized what a mysoginist (sp) he is.

So, needless to say, I ended my day with overeating *sigh*. Will I ever learn?


  1. Just a short word to say I'm sorry to hear how things are going. It's surprising to realize how little things have changed in terms of how responsibilities are often shared (or not) within marriages.

    Keep blogging, it helps.

  2. Thanks, I hope tomorrow is better. Still didn't do great with my eating today, but at least got a long walk in.

    Blogging does definitely help! Espesh receiving supportive feedback - thank you!

  3. I'm sorry for the bad ending to your day..sounds like you need a spa weekend away and let him do everything you do so he gains more respect for how difficult it actually is..try to keep you head up, i know its hard but we're all here for you :-)
