I currently work full time, have a 7mo old child, and totally manage our home. My husband does not have a 9-5 job. He works long hours and his job is over an hour away from home - he's a great man with a lot on his shoulders too. Our families live 1 to 2 hours away and we have few friends in town due to not living here long and not having time to go out and make any. The transition of going back to work was much more difficult than I anticipated. Quitting my job is not an option and I'm the kind of person that needs to be out of the house somewhat. I'd love to work part time but that is currently not an option. I miss my son terribly when I'm not with him, but always feel exhausted at the end of the day and feel guilty again for not being at my best when I'm spending time with him and trying to get everything else done. Not to sound selfish but I really never get out and let loose and relax any more or do something just for me. I feel like I'm wound pretty tight all the time just trying to keep the balance of our life flowing. I just wish I knew how other moms do it and make it look so easy. I'm going to attend time management counseling to see if that will help. Any suggestions/tips are appreciated.
