Friday night?


Friday, December 28, 2012

I guess it is Friday night, but I didn't even hardly realize it. My husband has to be to work in the morning at 6:15 am. I'm not complaining, I am thankful he has a job right now, but I have to be up to help him get out in the morning. By the time he leaves, I'm tired, but I'm not sure if I want to lay back down. I definitely don't want to clean or anything; I want to keep the kids sleeping as long as they will. If I stay awake, around 8-9 am I am sleeping on the couch and napping all day. If I go back to bed, I lay there for a little while, then fall asleep and don't wake up till around 10-11 am. My days are short either way and very frustrating that it seems that night comes soon and I never have anything accomplished. It seems to be a never ending cycle and I'm growing tired of getting up so early. But I can't just make my husband get up and not be there with him. I feel so guilty being able to go back to sleep. Oh well, here it is almost 9:30 pm and he is in bed and I know he wants me there, but the kids aren't in bed yet and I'm tired but not ready to lay down.

Well, morning comes early and I've never really been to bed this early since he started this job in November. So I guess it's time for me to get some very needed sleep.

Good night . . . . . . emoticon

    never easy when there are multiple schedules going in the house
enjoy the quieter time you have with hubby before he goes to work- that's a perfect time to "unite the home front" and have your game plan firmly in place
after he is out the door set a timer for 10 minutes to complete one household task then go back to bed knowing that you have already accomplished something today. Set the alarm so you get up about the same time as the kids
;- then do the same thing again- strategize together for the day; set the timer for 10 minutes this time everyone does one task. work together or apart depending on the age of your kids. at the end of the day- regardless of school year- I tell my kids that at 9 pm I am "off the clock" I expect them to be in their own rooms, reading- playing quiet games whatever- just don't bug me- I need an hour to 'unwind' before I go to bed and I can't do it if they keep coming out- they have learned that by cooperating they have a lot more freedom and privileges in a happier home..
good luck to you as you discover what works for your house
