Hi everyone, I havent been posting because we are still waiting on my husbands grandparents to move in, but, I have a question.
First some background: I am a stay at home mom, I have a 9 yr old in school and and 3 yr old home with me. I hope to get him into preschool this fall. I am sure the grandparents will be moving in by this summer.
Ok, here it is. I would really really like to go back to school. I at a point was thinking I wanted to go into nursing, one reason being that I would only have to go a couple years and then can get a job, and two because I want to take care of people. The route I am looking at now, and have more support from my husband for is Psychology. Obviously that takes much more time.
When the grandparents get here, I will be caring for Granny during the day (grandpa is younger and will be working). Is it possible to care for a grandparent (in poor health), care for my children, the household, and go to school?
I am feeling a bit frustrated because my husband keeps talking about how he wants to open a karate studio, and he keeps saying that it will be perfect for me to take classes at night, while he has the kids at the karate studio. I keep thinking to myself how am I supposed to do that, and how long am I supposed to wait before I get to do something for me (go to school).
I guess I am feeling like everyone elses needs are coming first. I dont mind taking care of granny, at all. I think its important that our children get this time with her, but, I guess I wonder, does anyone else here constantly have to put their own desires and needs aside for everyone else in the family, and if so, how do you stay sane, and not blow up? Maybe I am more frustrated that my husband has this goal in mind, and isnt taking into consideration how important my goal is as well. I have talked to him, but, he gets something in his head and he wont let go of it, ya know?
Maybe i just needed to vent, I dont know... thanks..
