Yes. You are under a big time stress. When the kids are young...it's so overwhelming at times and fun!
I understand the unfulfilled feeling. Most people may not get it, unless they stayed home for a long period of time. I stayed home for 15 years. I get it.
Keep doing things on a smaller scale. That is what I did. Instead of 2 classes..take 1. Don't take on as much work. Once the first one goes to school, then the second, etc...you can start to take on more. Also, look into a mothers day out program (usually church affiliated). They are great places for kids to hang out for a few hours a week (6-8 hours) and play/socialize with new faces and learn different things. They are usually reasonably priced.
It's refreshing to hear a family that is committed.
