Re: I am so bored...I want out! Help!
Justean- I'm sure you're right about the space thing...I'm just not sure how to make it happen. My husband gets offended if I don't want to spend time with him. He never seems to be able to get enough of me. I know this is just how he is...but I am not. I don't hold it against him really, but it's true I do need some space. This is an ongoing issue...something that has been going on for months. This isn't my first post about this situation. It sounds like you "take a break" on a pretty consistent basis. I would love to be able to do this.
I do try to do things for myself away from my family...book club, working out....but my husband makes comments that I don't want to be around him or the kids...jokingly of course, but I don't think he's joking. I know he feels like I don't give him enough attention. This has been a constant in our marriage. Again, I know others have offered suggestions to this before. We have been trying to make a point to have a date night, only recently...maybe this will help. All I know is I go through the day and night feeling like I just want to run away. Work is really crazy right now, but I had plenty of down time in the summer (even though the kids were around) because I'm a teacher.
Honey- to respond to your comment...I'm not really sure why I'm unhappy...I keep thinking it's because I'm not happy with my husband. People have made great suggestions to help with this...maybe I'm just not being proactive enough. Maybe this is my problem, and no one else is to blame....really not sure though.
Draconis-as you know from recent posts, I'm trying to find something to do to lessen this boredom. (the dance thing). I have been extremely tired adjusting to being back at school, so I haven't actively pursued anything else. I know I need to get back to the gym...it's been a couple of weeks. That may help. But, I still have this strong yearning to do SOMETHING. I really don't know what that something is, but I hate feeling this way.
