Totally gone through times like this. Especially when the kids were young like you say Jessica. It was really rough but you definitely NEED to make time for your relationship. If Mom and Dad aren't happy then it snowballs down. Relationship time can be as easy as setting the kids to nap or play in their rooms and sharing lunch quietly together on the weekend, it doesn't have to be a date out of the house.
Also follow those tips Mary said. It doesn't have to be a grand idea that cost a lot. When you are super busy, the little things mean a lot.
Gail I know this is an old post, did you find a good way to bring it up?
I don't get on here as often anymore. I realized my online time was a bit too much. I limit how much the kids are on the TV or computer, but needed to do that to myself! :)
Things are better. We talked that when he is off shift that doesn't mean he has free time unaccountable to anyone. That I need a little free time as well. It's not perfect, but nothing is and I need to be better about telling him when I'm feeling overwhelmed.
Oh good. Glad you got some communication going about it.
Yes, I know what you mean about having to set the online boundary for yourself. I've been working on that as well. I have to shut the computer off and become a part of the human world more in the evenings.
