I Am R E A L LY Tired

When My Body Is Shutting Down

I have had a long day

There was not a moments rest

I had to be at many places all during the day

It doesn't matter where I had to go or when

Since you couldn't of done any of the things I always do

Without question because I love you

My mind races from morning to night

With lists that are endless while you go to work

We both have jobs to do

But it hurts when you don't even notice

You take it for granted all the things will get done

Where would you be if the laundry wasn't washed folded and put away?

The kids weren't fed and sent off to school

The cats vet appointment wasn't kept

The grocery shopping and special things you wanted wasn't bought

The gas tank wasn't filled because you left it on empty

The bank deposit made so our bills don't bounce

The rugs were not vacumed and every room dusted

The cable bill paid

Yes the one we lost

Supper ready when you come home

Now it is late and I am tired and you want to stay up

I say can't it wait for another day

I have done all I could possibly do

My eyes are shutting as I am walking off to bed

This is my life from morning till night

I have had little time for t.v. and myself

Such a busy life I live that I won't remember tomorrow what I did today

All I know I am off to sleep

The last words I remember saying

Is I love you too

Dim Flaxenwick You certainly know how to make me feel so good.I appreciate all the moms and wives who make everything work.In a busy day so many things can happen that know one takes notice.It just becomes like one of the many vegetables in a supermarket isle.Pick one and their is another one side by side.So many to choose from then after a week no one seems care which one you picked.Micky Dee I found out that no matter what happens if you have love it all works out.Thanks for the comments.

Yes - the "support work" is easily taken for granted - till it's not being done! One must do whatever it is one does for the love of doing it and if any notice is taken or praise given, then it's a bonus. Hugs to you.

Nellieanna I know the truth.I would be lost without someone that helps me in many ways every day.I like to be very independent and I do alot of things around the house.But there is only so much time in a day.The feeling of warmth I get is all I really need to feel that what I did helped out so much.I want to thank you for your insight and nice thoughts.

I chose to read this of all your hubs because of the title, that is how I feel today, tired!

I have 4 children and a husband, am the Housewife, and writer. If my husband has to pick up the slack and do one of my jobs he starts saying things like " I don't have time to sit on my butt, I am doing something already!",gggrrr. I simply state that I will come to his workplace and tell him to do something because I am already doing 3 things or take the kids and tell him to work round them.

This poem would have had me in tears yesterday, nut today I am fine.

Consideration is free and it would be nice to have some shown by loved ones some days.x

Ddraigcoch Sometimes things just have to get done.Then again it should be known how hard you work and it is not easy.LOVE is a balance of give and take.I don't think it is fair for anyone to take on all the chores and the children too.It is best if we are a team and I know you go to work and work very hard but at no time am I not working to make it all happen for both of us.One can not survive without the other.If we constantly talk about the different things we have to do we can work together and have and enjoy this wonderful life together.Our children are both our responsibilities.We love each other as well as the children and we have to set a good example.Love can go through great measures and in the end love will keep us together.I am happy to do everything in our life to make it work.Sometimes a thanks is all that is needed,Other times help when neccessary and we can all sit down and take in a movie together.Remember to talk things out and arguing only gets eveyone more made.We are adults and can handle this in a civilized manner.If you have to make a list and check off what you can do.A little help is all I ask.If the cildren are older they can help out too.I can't wait to see how it turns out.Chin up and Life is a puzzle sometimes.All we have to do is help each other and in time all the pieces will fit.Have a good night and thanx so much for reading and sharing.
