What about the guilt factor---!!!!
OK, now I'm very frustrated. Actually, furious. I love my kids. I love working from my home. But if I don't supply the guilt factor, my kids do--even though Im home with them, visit and work at their schools, take them to functions, etc. I've been trying very hard not to work when my daughter gets home from school. But at night I said she needed to go to bed on time (8pm) so I could work then. Every night 10 rolls around and shes still up--complaining about this or that--asking me when I'll come lay down with her. URGGG. Now Im yelling at her, because shes exhausted, crying, my other daughter is now out of bed, and Ive accomplished little. I love them so much and usually dont feel the need to complain, but NOW I'm very URRGGG!!! Double URRGGG. What can I do????????? Is there a measuring stick out there for when it's okay to have me time--oh that's right--me time, means work. Triple URRGGGG.”
