Insomnia is a bitch…but I have been productive with it so far. I packed my lunch and prepared the coffee pot for in the morning (in 4 hours), did a little maintenance to my blog site (it needed to happen and now this – a journal entry.
The situation between my husband and I hasn’t improved by I am enjoying the bed to myself. Since his views of, ‘the kids are kids and shouldn’t have to do chores’ is already proving my argument to be true. I came home after 9 hours of work and cleaned EVERYTHING. The bathroom, kitchen, living room, vacuuming, mopping and picking up THEIR crap. He never once got up to help (like he said he would) and the kids came home, didn’t say two words to me and started to throw their belongings around. And as he said I shouldn’t yell at them to pick stuff up…I didn’t. They didn’t clean up…why should they? Mom is doing it. So after I packed my lunch tonight I picked up. The evening continued with me cooking dinner (without help) followed by dish pan hands and washing the dishes. No one said, ‘Thank you’ or ‘good dinner.’ I haven’t spoken to my kids in fear of blowing up at them and taking advantage of the situation.
I wonder how long it will take for my husband to realized the kids need to have chores to teach them responsibilities and how to earn items. Tomorrow I go and shut their phones off.
