No, cause I'm naked at home. Having my balls squeezed all day by underwear and pants is very stressful for me.

Because stress isn't caused by shifting events that can happen both at home and at work or pile on each other.

Let me generally sum up a day as a father of 2:

8:00-9:15am - in and out stress getting up, getting kids up, prepping/feeding kids, getting out the door, driving (is the toddler screaming?), dropping kid at day care

9:15am-5pm - some days stressful, others not. it just depends

5pm-8pm - in and out stress driving home (is the toddler still screaming?), figuring out/making dinner, piano lessons, cleaning up after dinner, some chill time as they watch half an hour of TV, then going upstairs, getting kids ready for bed, washing/dressing/reading

8pm-9pm - depending on the day, putting kids back to bed or nothing

9pm-1am or therebouts - pretty peaceful and chill, doing whatever I want


But within all of that, some days are better than others.

Why of course, yes.

No.  I recently got promoted to team lead.  Of course, I still do my previous job, too.  At home, I get to lay on the couch in my underwear.  They frown on that at the office.

I'd write more, but two jobs.

I work at home.
 
2014-07-31 03:35:24 PM  
yes, because there's a chance I'll get laid at work ....

No, because in my downtime, I play games online, and there's always either a hacker or some 12 year old kid who has nothing better to do than play all day long, so I end up more stressed than ever.

At home, I have a 16 year old girl.

Two teenage daughters. The older one and her mother are tearing at each other's throat non-stop. If I try to intervene, they gang up on me.

So yeah, there is a reason I usually stay at work until at least 7-7:30

Hell no, if I could drink at work, now that would be another matter.

This is why I say nothing about my daughters on fark, sandi_fish.

Shame on you New_Age. You should be asking if she has a 23 year old daughter.

   I thought that comment showcased my clever, sarcastic wit.....guess not......should probably just stick to the Farktography threads.......


Shame on you New_Age. You should be asking if she has a 23 33 year old daughter.

Fixed that to reflect reality at this point in time.

Ha! I'm sure you love your daughter to bits.....I'm guessing even reasonable, well adjusted kids that age can be trying at times....

The only sounds I hear at all right now are the wind every now and then and the white noise of traffic from the Interstate not far from here (which I have heard all of my life, so it is really kind of soothing to me).  Every day I come home and the house is blissfully quiet.

When I wake up, more quiet.  The world is out there.  I am in here.

Perhaps I am missing out on some of life's joys, but few things are more soothing to me than stepping through the door and shutting out the shiatstorm circus outside.  If I were to come home to yet more demands on my time and energy, I would go absolutely mad.  I can barely handle the workforce as it is.  I would be an utterly miserable parent, and I don't want to inflict that on a kid.

Guess it's selfish, but to each his own.  I wish you all luck in your family endeavors.  I know I couldn't do it.
