I had to go grocery shopping, for us and my daughter who is again disabled with broken foot, Hubby needed gas for the the tractor and for the weed whacker, this means I had to set up my trip so that the food stuffs were not exposed to the gas fumes for very long. I planned the whole thing like a military campaign. First grocery shopped two orders, I had to wait twenty extra minutes for the chicken to be cooked for the daughter, then put one order through the checker and paid, then came my order, had to also get money for the gas station. I stored the orders in the car in the way they would be delivered and on to the gas station. When I got there I took over all three pumps with the help of the station worker and we got everything filled and back in the car, then home to daughters house, got her order out and picked up some thing to take to Hubby, got to my house and was able to unload without disturbing the gas products, which were smelling pretty bad by then, outside temp was 90+ . Next stop the barn to unload the gas then back home to put everything away. Mean time Hubby comes in as says why didn't you go by the feed store and get feed for the Llamas. I swear I didn't hit him, that glass of water just happened to splash all over him. He just laughed. Do you ever feel unappreciated?

I can relate to that feeling! I went to the doctor today and she told me that I ought to take a look at my lifestyle because I am run down and doing too much. I was sent for a blood test after the visit and went home after that. I walked in the door and I was bombarded with things to do while the husband is pacing around the house asking, ‘What’s for dinner?” The animals needed feeding, the cat had to be given tablets before food and the washing needed to be hung out. All this before I had a chance to check my emails and do the banking. I try hard not to lose the plot but it amazes me that after coping with all my daily demands I am still left with the feeling that I don’t do enough! I would have thrown more than water at him!

hahaha i perfectly know how you feel my friend, you know I have been doing stuff for my family and sister for many years now at first I get annoyed with it but as years passed I get used to the idea already and dont look at it as a chore I dont get appreciated always but I know they are thankful for everything I do to them, I guess the only way I could stop all this is getting married lol all those responsibility and little time for myself thats how I feel almost everyday but in a way I am also thankful coz this made ma a responsible person and I know thins things wont stop even if I am married but at least it wont be new to me anymore and this time it would be for my family my very own family so cheer up and chill a bit we both need it

Yes...I do. Sometimes I feel like the people in my family only think of theirselves. I think that if it weren't for the things they needed..I wouldn't be around. I only feel like that sometimes..kinda like a mood thing but I hate it when I do.

you are full of it, in other words I doubt you sincerity, but like what you say. Thanks, I think I'm more like the Mother Kali having two sides the builder and destroyer.

Wow, Pat. I am exhausted just thinking about trying to do all that. And yup, often enough, I do feel unappreciated! I hope you can take it easy for at least part of tomorrow! Karen

That is what I forgot to do, breath and I give this advice to everyone, I just didn't take my own advice, as usual. Thanks

Om my goodness Pat! Why didn't your hubby come and help you? That was an awful lot for you to have to do by yourself in that kind of heat? Why couldn't he go and get the gas and the feed for the llamas at least? You should have dumped the water on his head and more! That was way too much for you to have to do! And you had to help out your daughter too? That just wasn't fair! I hope hubby makes it up to you! And I sure hope he went out to get the llama feed!

Man, he does not expect much does he? He probably enjoyed the cool water if the temp was around 90. It sure sounds like you had a busy day yesterday.

Just riding the tractor, I would have traded with him but I can't steer the dang thing, it or me is just to old.
