For all those married or unmarried bloggers out there. Marriage is hard work. It is hard work if you want to have something special and good. Lately I have been put to the test with my husband's new part time gig. It takes some of the time we used to spend bonding away. This leaves me feeling like I have to pounce on him when I do get time, or leaves me feeling lonely.
The first month he started his new gig I found blogging. I blogged and sacrificed the general household duties, which he wasn't able to do. The second month as the household duties and fresh meals began to take their effect and slide, I stopped blogging as much and began to maintain the household while getting attention hungry and angry at my sacrifice.
This month is back in balance. This month I am realizing balance is work. I am trying to spend time that is quality and do a better job listening and doing the things to make both of us happy.
It took a lot of thinking and some fighting to get the balance back.
Thankfully I feel the scale is equal now. Marriage is hard work.
