HerNameIsBuffy posted a topic in Quiverfull of Corona Virus DiscussionI can't remember the last time my kids got on my nerves other than the most fleeting ways. Different schedules, work (all of us), school and social lives (them) I was always happy when we caught a few minutes together. But today...I could tell one of them is just sick of me being around so much. He won't say it, but brought home a ton of food only he eats and I made a comment (in a neutral tone) that he keeps filling up the freezer and I have to go shopping soon and I got an eyeroll and now he's deboxing stuff in the living room to make it fit because I'm in the kitchen. No yelling, no harsh words, but my feelings are hurt and yeah - I'm annoyed because we have one freezer now and I'm tired of never having ice because he keeps overloading the damn thing. Before I'd sigh and forget about it by the time I saw him again. Now - I'm mostly just hurt that I can tell he's sick of me being home all the time. And he's sick of being home all the time. And I'm sick of being asked "what's wrong?" like my not having a grin on my face when I'm clearly frustrated with a work thing is personal affront. I need to be able to swear at my screen without having to explain myself. I'm usually in a good mood when I'm home because it's usually not also my work place 8.5 hours a day. It's such little stuff ...I get that he's unhappy but this isn't fun for me either. I don't think this much togetherness is healthy for us. And I'm really jealous of all the families who are using this time to reconnect, enjoy time together, play games, hang out, etc. And one of my dogs has a hot spot and she's mad at me for the medicine I need to spray on it. And I haven't gone to the bathroom alone since we've been on lockdown. I'm always accompanied by at least one cat, usually two, and about half the time a 135 lb dog joins the viewing audience. The cat who attends every performance likes to jump on the toilet just before I sit, it's his favorite game. I had to pivot at the last minute to avoid smooshing him and guess who now has a broken toilet seat? In some ways I'm very alone in life, and in some ways I'd pay good money to have 5 minutes in the bathroom without company.
