It's been a while

So, it's been a while since I've been on here.  I guess about a year!  Update on life: Hubby now has a full time job managing a radio station.  I worked 2 part time jobs for about 6 months while he was unemployed, but am staying home with the kids again.  He hates his job, although he's making almost as much here as he was at his last job, with the potential to make much more.  And he's not happy.  Umm...okay.  I can have a great day, but as soon as he walks in the door my mood changes.  Why? Because his attitude is terrible.  He was happy being unemployed, staying home, playing PS3 and NOT cleaning the house.  He was content.  But I wasn't making enough money for us to live on with my 2 part time jobs. Yeah, during the holidays I was pushing 55 hours or more a week between the 2 jobs.  But before and after, I was lucky to get 10 hours a week between both places.  This job opportunity landed in his lap and it would have been foolish to let it slip away because it's not his 'ideal' job.  And I can't make him happy.  I'm not happy.  I haven't been for a while.  I've actually started talking to somebody on a weekly basis.  It's only been a few weeks, but already I feel better.  I think I've just lost myself, so I'll work on finding me again.  And maybe when I'm happy things will be better for him.  I will admit, my attitude does change as soon as he walks in the door.  But it's because of having to deal with his poor attitude for so long.  Oh well, we will see where life continues to take us! :) 


  1. Sorry that things are so tough
    Overwork, depression and sadness are a tough combination

    Talking to someone really does help
    good luck and keep us posted

  2. Glad to have you back! So sorry that things are still so hard, though. I have been thinking of "talking to" someone. Happy that it is helping you.

    Take care,
