Is it a bad thing when you are out running errands and you don’t want to go home?
That was how I felt today. the husband and I were picking up a prescription for the 24-year-old while he was at work. with a badly burned foot. after we dropped the medicine off to him at the restaurant where he works, I said to my husband, “is it bad not to want to go home?” to which he replied, “I thought we would go and get some ice cream.”
That was a great Idea… and the banana split was wonderful.
However the question still remains, is it bad not to want to come home?
I find myself so tired of the responsibilities that go with this home. the people, the animals, the cleaning. Mostly it is the people. I get irritated with the lack of effort they put into making this home a pleasant place to be. I feel like the maid and nanny. I am not an old woman, but I find myself weary from the day-to-day chores that I should not have to do considering the ages of my house mates (my adult children) And I grow weary of doing the job of a mother rather than a grandmother.
So there are more times than not that I don’t want to come home. but I always do. and when I do it, everybody else leaves.
