What To Do???

Dear EPeers, I am a relatively new member. I joined on Nov 24, 12. My first & only question is to you mother's & wives out there. How do you do it?

I have a 12 & 15 year old. While they are in school I have shopping, doctor, dental, salon, car maintanance appts & errands to do. That is not all in the same day! That's just for me!

If its not my turn to pick up my kids I can go home & begin supper. If I do need to pick them up from school its another hour or so of taxi driving to soccer, la cross or study group at the library for my son. Dance & swimming class for my daughter. If I take them they get a ride home or vice - versa.

Supper is always homemade & very rarely without guests such as my mother-in-law, kids friends or other relatives. Its how we stay in touch.

My husband works very close by as an attorney & is home for supper every night. Very often, after supper he returns to the office or works out of his study til bedtime.

After supper, all the kids do homework while I clean up then we do desert, everyone helps to clean up then goes home. Bedtime, I am exhausted. Most of the time my husband follows. Then we do it all over again, day after day. Truth be told, I Love It! />
On more than one ocassion if I awoke during the night I would grab my phone sneak into my bathroom not to disturb anyone & go on EP with every intention of answering e-mails, writing at least one story, communicating with someone & my favorite, answering questions.

One more thing! I only have 3 friends & I don't know how it happened but I wish I was told how to know more about them before I became friends. For instance, I now know I could write specifics as to what kind of friend I want. I won't judge someone based on their choice of friends but I do not want to be part of a circle that is full of behinds, boobs & God forbid anything worse. I can't speak for you but I have more class than that & I want to share EP with my family!

Unfortunately, my EP rendezvous in my bathroom didn't last longer than the time it took to sign on. The only way I got this far tonight is, I have been in bed all day with the flu. My mother-in-law, Bless Her Heart has totally taken over. I have been off & on online about 10 times & I am still not finished.
What I am trying to say, my friends, this isn't working
for me. I don't quite know what my options are, if any. Weekends are absolutely family spent!I can't promise if I'll stay or go just yet! But I do know, my family stays!

Wow! Cucina you are a very busy lady! It's nice to know what's going on with your life. I remember those days myself! Always go go go with the kids. And my wife doing all the things you do! I hope you will stay on EP, because it is great talking with you. I wish you all the best in your life! Paul.
