Does anyone else have a DP with no motivation to go to work?
She's usually pretty good, but this morning she was like a 5 year old! Alarm went off and she said she didn't want to go and she wanted to call in sick. I said she should save her sick days for when she's actually sick (on probation you only get 3 unless exceptional circumstances). She said she didn't care, she was going to call in.
I said I thought it was a bad idea, and she huffed and puffed then got out of bed and started getting ready. I offered to drive her in and when we got there she did concede and thank me for making her get off her bum but arggh!
I felt like a nagging mum but honestly? I don't love work but I still have to go, she just had 6 days off! So forgive me for not being sympathetic!

That is frustrating for you but good on you for being supportive (not nagging!) and DP obviously appreciated it eventually. Is she normally like this in regards to going to work? I can understand her lack of motivation after having 6 days off though, I find it hard having motivation just after having a weekend off sometimes

Haha nope, not dh! Me!
I struggle at least once a week! And it's not because I don't like my job, i actually love it but I'd just rather not be there! And after leave?? Well, it's 10x harder! My dh leaves 1.5hours before me so it's up to me to get my bum motivated... And 18month ds, who has the opposite affect!

Sometimes my alarm goes off and it honestly feels like it's the middle of the night. But, here I am. Like every other morning. I've only had ONE "mental health day" from my job, which was recently, and I actually had an appointment that day lol - I've been here 3 years.
DP is difficult to get out of bed but he always goes to work.

Yes - I think it's called morningitis. My husband moans and groans very morning - he gets ignored, I'm to busy moaning and groaning myself!

I was more like - if I only get 2 days off work then have to go to work for 5 days, you can go to work for 2 days after 6 days off!
I know once she's there she's fine though. And she'll thank me when she's sick and needs a day off and has her sick leave up her sleeve!

Her reasoning was she didn't want to talk to stupid people all day

When I was working that was me!! I worked mornings and DH nights so I had to drag my bum out of bed without waking him then sneak around getting ready! I called in sick a few times
