I don't have as much responsibility as some on this board.... I don't have kids, I don't care for parents, or anything like that. But what I CAN say is.... I do have a house to care for, 3 young dogs, my SO, I work to pay a lot of bills, and I train in Schutzhund and Personal protection with two of the three dogs. Soon, I will also be going back to school to finish up some degrees I had started. For our age... we have a lot on our plate.
I will admit, it's very difficult to work everything in and all the dogs needs. I love my dogs to death, but they certainly make my life a lot busier. Because the females don't get along (was expected), we crate and rotate here. So I have to make sure everyone is out the proper amount of time... worked, tired, happy... then go on to the next. Dinner (and breakfast for the pup) takes a good chunk of time at night while I could be cooking for the humans here. Weekends are pretty much dedicated to the dogs. That's when I do a lot of training, trim nails, groom, bathe if needed, clean their room, socialization time, take them hiking or down to the fields for some fun, etc. It does chew up a lot of time that my SO and I could have together. BUT, it's worth it. I love my dogs. They protect my home and us here, they bring love and laughter to our home, and they keep us company through good and bad times.
Mostly what I did to make things a bit easier, is create a system. I have a schedule I follow daily. I rarely change it, and the dogs and I both have things memorized. It works for us and has shortened the time down and allowed me to get everything done. Most I do on my own, but there are things my SO helps me with to shorten the time. For example: When I bike everyone, he'll have the next dog leashed and ready to go... I walk in the house and switch dogs. He gets collars and leashes off and lets them get some water, relax, and then kennel.. next dog... and so on. This has saved me about 1-2hrs.... and the dogs each get more personal time.
That's what worked for us. When we go off the schedule or before when we would just scramble around to get everything done..... it was way too hectic and nothing ever really got done. I was too overwhelmed, and like you... I just wanted to be far away for a bit to just be ME and not worry about everything and everyone else. It's do-able now. Most days go through without any issues. Maybe you can make some sort of system, and learn what steps you can take to shorten everything down... so you have some time to relax?
Just an idea. Hope this helps. If not, just know others have been there too!
