Re: Resentment

Add husband is great at many things. He is great at physical labor around farm and does his share of that during chore hours everyday. The difference is my "supermom" workday starts earlier and ends later than his work.

He already has spending issues so I don't want to buy him more stuff. I go without the things I want because he spends so much. He also does not take care of his things and so we often have to replace tools and other lost/rusted items.

I suspect some of our problem is the old fashioned gender division of labor that we have fallen into. My work never ends and I get no "me" time. I know this is a challenge that I must solve. I must learn to say no. I also need to ask for help.

Thank you everyone for your thoughts. It is physically exhausting to be in this role.
