I need a vacation. I just feel so overwhelmed by the littlest things right now. My house needs some more cleaning, and I feel overwhelmed about that. I feel like I never have any alone time. Of course, I am a parent, so alone time is really hard to come by. But, I just need so time to me. I just desperately need some time that I don't have to worry about anything. If I want to clean, then I will, but I won't have to. If I just want to lie around and watch movies or read or sleep, then that would be ok. I just really want some ME time. I just want some time where I can do whatever I want. And it will be quiet. I love my husband to death, but sometimes he just won't shut up. And he always thinks that there is something wrong when I am just spending some quiet time reading or something. I drives me crazy sometimes.
Sometimes, I will be trying to read on the couch or in bed and he will just start talking to me. I don't mind that he talks to me, but sometimes I just want to veg out and lose myself in a book so that I won't have to think about the pain that I am in or all the things that need done around the house. Sometimes, he will be talking to me and my son will be fussing because he is tired or something and everything just seems so chaotic. It just makes me feel so overwhelmed.
I just really needed to vent, and maybe get some advice. I love you all. Thanks for letting me vent.

You might need to jump into the bathroom with a book to read.  I take my sudoku puzzles in there when I need a quiet break.  People always assume you NEED to be in there.  Sometimes I just sit on the floor with the door locked and read or do a puzzle for 15 minutes or so.  Who knows what you are doing? yeah I edited this post after I thought about it for a few minutes. I know how hard it is to be a parent and wife especially when you don't feel great.   Maybe you could talk to your husband about how you are feeling.  Maybe you could somehow have a day/afternoon/night alone at home or even out somewhere.  That darn housework is always going to be there.  Someone on the forum recommended the "Fly Lady" website for cleaning hints.   I don't remember the exact site but it was informative.  Thinking of you!

I take a book into the bathtub with me constantly. I do it almost everyday. It is my little getaway. But, sometimes, I need a little more than that. I will google that site you mentioned, see if I can find it.
