Thanks all! I hope that you are right, Sandy, about the sleeping through everything. I have 2 daughters, and it seemed like they were 5 years old before they would sleep through the night. I'm the kind of person that likes things done a certain way, especially when it comes to the yard or the vehicles. I guess I might have just overexaggerated on how much had to be done. The house just needs a little organization. I shampooed carpets, dusted, did all the laundry, put up Parker's nursery, and hauled a LOT of stuff to storage while the wife was in the hospital. It is really just a little "maintenance" that is needed as far as chores go. I'll get by. I work odd hours, 1300-2300, so it makes it difficult to really get anything done during the week. Then I give up 1, sometimes 2, weekends a month to serve my country, 17 years in UASF and USAFR. I have to play catch up with them now as well. And I guess I can't leave out the most important thing, visiting Parker, before and after work. I don't know if I could make it a whole day without seeing him. I know that I'll get caught up eventually! How can I convince my wife to go shopping for herself, CLOTHES? I've tried going with her, but she drives me batty. She just refuses to buy anything.
