To wonder if anyone else feels totally burnt out by doing everything in the house and with the DCs, all the time?

As per title really sad

DH is doing less and less all the time in the house and with the kids. My hours at work have increased, I also run a business from home, do DH's paperwork and admin, and have to spend a lot of time with my mum who is disabled and was widowed 2 years ago. If I don't do things in the house, then they don't get done. I am meant to be working from home today but the house is a tip and I just feel totally burnt out and like I've just had enough.

I have tried talking to DH about it so many times but he thinks he does loads!

Yes sad
I wish I could say go on easy on yourself but I know it's easier said than done! flowers
Just wanted to say that you're not alone.

Yes.
Intact. I've just today decided to give up.
I am on the go from 6am until gone 10pm much of the time recently.
I ensure I earn a wage (quite recently!) Which almost matches my husband's, I do the cleaning, and the cooking. I figure everything out. I even drive him to and from work at the moment.
To top this off, throughout the holidays I was looking after DD the whole time, and the past week that she's been off of school feeling unwell.

How is it fair that we do so much more than men?

To add to it, I've had LL on the phone, shouting that rent is late, because he paid £220 rent one month earlier this year. Which I'm fuming about. Not always easier with them.

I feel even worse today, just totally and utterly drained and burnt out from it all, combined with a feeling of complete anger that DH behaves the way he does.

The way he swans off to work each morning just sorting himself out whilst I have to sort everything and everyone else out makes me want to scream. And he swans off to bed at night too when he feels like it, fuck the fact that uniform needs sorting or packed lunches need making or the kitchen still has stuff from tea everywhere.

I've had enough.

I don't have much to say but I really feel for you. You are allowing him to get away with it and he is ok with you doing everything. Enough is enough.
