Hello, all. I do not get a chance to post or visit the site as much as I'd like and I miss the support and good advice when I'm absent. Here is my issue- Being in my forties and having a few health issues, working full time and raising 2 children when hubby is away all week, I'm finding that at certain times my mental and physical energy are low. I have had some constant joint pain recently. This is becoming frustrating because it is keeping me off of my "A" game, so to speak. I know this because it has affected the past few weekends when hubby is home. I try, to the best of my ability, not to let it interfere with us, but recently it has and I'm finding hubby being a little bratty and frustrated because he isn't getting the attention he needs to keep him motivated. On top of that, He has also been more physically and mentally exhausted himself, and is about to leave for the next two weeks. He had high expectations for this weekend, knowing he would be gone. I hate when he goes for an extended period, so I become moody and a little unbearable, too. Unfortunately, our physical issues and emotional issues have gotten in the way. The result? The house is a mess, there has been little cooperation, lots of little arguments, and neither of us has been "feeling the love." How do you cope when these perfect little storms culminate and how do you get things back to where they need to be?
