So now that I am back on here, things have changed a bit. I am doing everything full time now. I guess I always was before. but now it’s like I have this grown up job (I mean, about time….I am about to be 40) and my work is a bit consuming right now. It won’t always be this way, but I am new and I have a lot to learn. And there is a shitload of growth potential and money to be made and man, I am all about getting paid right now.
But now it’s like, I got my wish and I got this big ass job. I am FULL time and when I clock out, I am momming like crazy. My kids are so much fun right now. They are all so active and silly and entertaining. Between them and work, days are flying by. The question is, after getting up, working out, getting kids set up, going to work, getting off work, play time, dinner time, bath time, bed time…..when do I wife?
I mean I housewife all day still (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA) but how do we carve out time for our partners? And not just for sex……but for anything! Like after all that I am tired. Chatting doesn’t seem fun. I can’t keep my eyes open to snuggle up to a good movie, and god forbid it’s some sort of chore to accomplish together. F that…this B is spent.
I guess this transition is still a work in progress….I guess it always will be. And maybe this is just a stage. Maybe one day I will suddenly have a burst of energy at the end of the day and be down for a long night of conversation. Until then, I will just continue to fall asleep putting the kids to bed and creep into our bed at all hours of the night.
We still keep things fresh during passing. I am not one to sext (did I really just type that?) but I am one to send an ‘I miss you” or ‘Can’t wait to see you’ or ‘Don’t you want to eat copious amounts of cheese dip later?’…..gotta know someone’s love language, right.
I do I can have it all. Work, kids, husband, home, pets and copious amounts of cheese dip, but just like everything else in this crazy life, gotta bust my ass around that learning curve.
