Is it September yet? here's why I ask:
Many of the people I know that haven't known me since before I had kids call me CRAZY. They don't realize that I have actually slowed down some since having them.
I like to be busy. I actually get more done when I have a full schedule than when I have a light schedule. So here's what my schedule is like now:
I work 3 jobs. One every Monday, and i can pick up shifts Tues-Fri when they become available, the second is in a retail store, and that's every other weekend, every other Wednesday, and extra shifts when the boss is away. The third is a work from home deal for a family friend doing admin stuff. Its flexible but I need to check email everyday and respond.
Right now, with summer vacation season upon us, I AM BUSY, because everyone wants to be on vaca. This week, from Monday through to Sunday evening, I am working the store everyday (yes, the weekend as well, cause its my regular weekend). Then I am off Monday because the daycare is closed, work Wednesday and Saturday at the store. As of Saturday, I will work the next 30 with 5 days off total. The sucky part of this is that my first day off in this cycle is Sunday. It doesn't really seem to count.
Keep in mind I have 4 1/2 year old twins who are very active, very busy, and take up a lot of time. They are spending extra time with their dad this summer which means shuttling them to his place 1/2 an hour away, and them coming at weird times on weird nights. During school, this is home to mom Sunday, off to Dad's Friday night. I REALLY miss this routine.
And if that wasn't enough for me, I have just started the process of getting my teaching certificate. This means that during my week where I am almost off (next week) I am starting a Children's Lit course which I have 4 months to complete. I just finished an MS Office 2007 course, and will write the exam Saturday night after work so that its done and out of the way.
Did I mention i like to be busy? I don't think I meant this busy. DEFINITELY not.
All in all, I should be mush by labour day weekend and my house will likely need some major attention to detail.
