Lets see, around the house...

I cook, I clean, I do the dishes, I do the laundry, I make sure that my daughter makes it to her bus stop on time. I do the budget, I pay the bills, I have full control over our financial situation, even though I try to include her in it all the time. I take care of the dogs, I feed the fish. At least since it is fall I do not have a lot of yard work to do.

We both work full-time and of course she is bi-polar but the only thing that she has to do is the grocery shopping... which of course I did this weekend too.

She does do things, like decorate for holidays, and she is good with our daughter... but for the most part I pretty much do everything.

It was not always like that, we had an equal share, and I know a lot of it is her illness. So I put up with it.

Honestly I don't mind doing all of these things. I now have a routine that works and I do not feel at all overwhelmed, but sometimes...

Like this weekend, I took a break from my duties and played a video game... for most of the weekend. I still did a lot of the work around the house, but some things were left undone... and I briefly felt guilty about it... but I am happy that I did it.

I am now caught up with all the housework and back to my regular routine.

It was definitely a much needed break, especially for my sanity.


  1. Good for you! I think you need to do that more often. If you don't take care of yourself, you can't take care of anyone else. Be good to you.

  2. I understand. I do just about all of those things myself as well. My wife is not bi-polar, but she does tell me quite often how she does everything around the house and never gets any help. Then when I take a break it just gets worse, but you have to sometimes.

  3. I have so missed you. Glad to see your back. I wish the reason you were away was cause of some amazing vacation you were on.

    Hang in there. : )

A Cry Out For Help.

The room was completely silent aside from her breathing. I was awake slightly trying to get back to sleep. Apparently something woke me up at this hour, because I was extremely tired from the weekend. Her breathing seemed odd, almost labored, and I could hear a moan every now and again. Despite her sleeping habits, talking, moaning, breathing heavy, this seemed different. I reached over and touched her shoulder, wondering if it was just me or should I try to wake her. When I heard another moan I gave her a quick shake to see if everything was ok. She stirred slightly but did not waken completely. I shook her again, and again she did not respond very well. At this point I knew something was wrong and I got up and turned on the light. I called her name slightly louder at this point and got back on the bed to shake her awake. She opened her eyes and looked up at me and looking at her eyes I could see the emptiness. Fearing the worst, that she decided to finish off her medications

Raining (HNT)

The rain has been falling for the last few days here. We needed it so I am not complaining. It has made the weekend plans a little harder but I think we will find something fun to do. I am still working on getting used to the camera and lack of flash, so the picture seems a little grainy but I thought it went well with the dark rainy weather we are having. Happy HNT! As always check out Osbasso for who else is playing!
