I would like to drop down to PT work. I have a good paying job, but chose nights to avoid the politics and backstabbing of day shift. My kids are 9 and 7 ad haven't been in any sports, etc(other than church group on we'd night). This is b/c my hubby works FT days and I work FT nights. My job is an hour away so I've had to rent a room so I can sleep and not drive so far between shifts. I am always tired ad I'm almost 40. I feel like I have no quality of life and don't see my kids or house much to enjoy it. Why am I working so hard , if I can't enjoy it and have time for my kids?I mentioned going to PT several times. This last time I asked my hubby why he seems so against it. His answer: I've gotten used to a certain standard of living.". I take this to mean he likes all the extra money my job provides. Thing is I have no time to relax, exercise b/c always catching up the chores, spending as much time as I can w/ the kids b/c they're only young once. I feel like I'm cheating them b/c don't have as much time for them as I used to. I'm having to sneak in naps constantly. What kind of life is this?To me it's not much of a life as I feel lonely ( no time to make friends) and stagnant ( no time to enjoy hobbies). More husband is more materialistic than me. I can be happy and poor as long as we can cover our bills. Makes me wonder when he turned into a jerk that can't see I'm suffering.Just a vent. Any other ladies go thru this once they started making good money as nurses?
