I have been pretty grouchy lately. I just feel like my 17 year old speaks another language. I am slowly reading the book called Love and Logic that a blogger sent me. I hope it really helps and I know how to use what I read. If anything maybe we will have an easier time with the child who is almost a teen. I think I feel stretched too far. I work full time and I aim to be at the Y 3 to 4 times a week. The last two weeks, I have been Monday thru Wednesday. All this week, I took Stephen with me too. I feel like if I work out and let my child who overweight sit home and watch tv then I am being a bad Mom.

I feel like I am putting too much on my husband to cook almost all the meals. I worked my 5.25 hour shift and ran to get bunny food and cat food and I wanted to spend the 45 minutes before I had to leave to at least prep dinner for my husband but all the pots and pans were dirty. My husband supports my desires to go to the Y and doesn't complain but I still feel bad.

Well, I better get off here and get ready for work. I have two shifts so I spend more than 12 hours out of the house. So glad, I only do this once a week now. It used to be two.

I'm not sure if this would help you, but in our family we've been cooking meals that are double the size of what we'll eat. We then freeze half of it and eat it a few nights later. Whatever we have Monday, we'll usually have Thursday as well and Thursday night is just a simple reheat. Or we'll prep meals but rather than baking them we'll put them in the fridge for the next night. The next night all the prep work is done, we just need to pop it in the oven. Just a few things we've been doing to make dinner time easier.

Thanks for the suggestion. I never thought of that.
