A Bad Rep!

I am getting a reputation around my house for being cranky. I don't want to be cranky. I am seriously the happiest I have ever been in a long time. but I am a crank to Pete when he gets home at 7:30 and I feel terrible about it-most of the time. It has usually been a long day and the sink is usually waiting for me with a bunch of dishes.and I haven't eaten dinner yet and I am tired. I know it is no excuse.


Do they make pills for cranky bitch?


I am annoyed my sink is usually filled with dishes. Then I remember I made Eliza like a zillion different meals. My house is usually not that tidy. I must admit that I can be a bit of a mess. Sometimes I think I should have it all together- everything neat and organized. Unfortunately, that just isn't my personality. I wonder how things can be such a mess when I am home all day. Then I remember I have been playing with Eliza all day instead of cleaning, organizing, etc.


I promise I will do better. Really! I will.

I know what you mean!!! After I had kids I really became a neat freak obessed person. Brian - notsomuch. SO, it gets to me when I can't seem to have it all together. Like I seriously think at times I start to hyperventilate and then I get crabby . Put it this way - everyday when we walk in the door in the afternoon, Avery looks at me and says "vaccum" - he is ready to go grab it and help me out! I am rubbing off on him...

I could use some of those happy pills, too. But I must say that if you have been playing with Eliza all day, you've been doing great! Give yourself a pat on the back...

I am generally cranky towards my husband, especially in the evenings, because I just have little patience or kindness left in me after chasing kids all day. It doesn't mean I am unhappy, I just get tired and my husband gets the brunt of it, you know?

That is so funny that you should say that. I think all SAHM/WAHM's feel the same exact way about their homes. Your house is lived in! You don't get to clean and then leave for 12 hours at a time...its an endless pit and not the least bit rewarding. LOL :) hang in there...let me know if you come up with a system that works I will take advice if you have any.

You sound like me! I am always cranky towards my poor hubby- but he is SO patient! And there are dishes in my sink right now and trains tracks all over the kitchen floor... but I am not going to clean those up at 9pm :)

I totally know how you feel. My husband would probably say I need some happy pills too!

I've been there, too. And while I'm not married, those happy pills might make a difference to me, too.

My house is always a mess. ALWAYS. And if my husband comes home late, I am the world's biggest bitch.
