[...] Over the last few months I’ve found myself trying to explain the deepening (and real community) aspects of meatspace interactions that my wife Jen and I have been drawn into as a result of participating in online community. [...]

lovely post, out of stolen time. it took me a long time to realized it was the threat of interruption that kept me from digging in during naps and tv time; that I needed firmly bounded off time to take the plunge. knowing what we need and want is much more than half the battle. k.

The good news is that it gets easier as they get older. Mine are now 10 and 12, and I really don't want for "me time" (and neither does my husband, who has always been the full-time caregiver in our household). It's hard--*really* hard--when they're little. It takes all of your time and all of your energy (physical, emotional, and intellectual). But it doesn't last forever, and the investment (however difficult it is to make) pays off in spades. :)

I'm right there too...this is all I've ever said that I wanted and I really didn't like working fulltime, I must be either an incredibly unhappy person or just totally selfish. I LOVE my kids, but find myself just "making it" through a lot of days. Sitting with them in the TV room with me either on the computer or knitting while they run around playing or watching TV...I do the minimum amount of housework that I feel I can get away with as quickly as possible so I can return to whataver I want to do. We do the things we have to do, like school, church, etc but not a lot of park trips, zoo, etc. Wow that looks worse in print than in seemed in my head! I need to go to the Jen school of schedules. I've always said I would be happier if we had some sort of schedule, but can never seem to make one or I make one and don't stick to it....okay, I'd better submit this comment quickly before I delete it out of embarassment!

Wow! I think you hit on the nail what I am struggling through at this very moment. I Chose/choose to mother, but very often do it from a crappy state of mind, thus therapy, medications, and struggling to find the root of my "evil" Why do I hate being a mommy so much when all I have wanted to be my entire life is a mom? Still trying to resolve it. So thank you for sharing once again, what you have learned and are still learning/discovering about yourself and who you are and where you want to be.
