The line to resign?
Today is one of those days when I would go and resign if there were such a place. Erik and I are not much in the way of a team. Ordinarily, it sort of works for us. When he has a day off though, unless we depart from the norm and go have a fun family day, I feel like a complete failure in all areas. Things that don't bother him when he comes home from work really DO bother him when he is home all day. This usually leads to some lovely utterance about the house or my house-cleaning abilities which don't even come close to his Mom's. He doesn't say this, he just sort of gives everything a disapproving look. Then I am angry because of all the ways I am involved in the girls lives, homeschooling, scouts, church, social events-through homeschool group and other places. I am involved and some times in charge of a great many things all in addition to the house stuff. I don't "farm" anything out-it is all me. So I tend to be very hurt that this is not acknowledged, the smiles and acknowledgement come only from a clean house day. REALLY STINKS when the clean house days are so few and far between.
I am trying to do better, but if the house is to always be clean, school and housework are all we can do. This would not suit our little social offspring-or me. We sort of need people and going places-ALOT. We all get a little crazy with too many stay at home days in a row. So today, with all things considered, I really just wanted to walk out and never come back. I took a nap instead and I feel much better. Tomorrow is a new day.
