Juggling Act

Remember this juggling act I mentioned with my new job. It has been a crazy week, and, oh wait, it is only Tuesday night.

Yesterday I went to a real estate class in the morning, ran home, fed the kids, got a load of laundry done and then headed to training at 3:00 (after Jason got home). At 6:00, I was finally heading home and picking up fast food for dinner. Then I worked on paperwork for a few hours. Jason was exhausted from the heat (working outside) and I was also exhausted and I think we were asleep by 9:30 - lights are never out before 11:00 around here.

Jason had set his alarm for 5:45 to head to work early enough to get 8 hours in and not be out in the hottest part of the day. Unfortunately, Capps had some breathing issues (we are working on figuring out what that was - possibly a panic attack from a bad dream or some asthma issues that we are unaware of? Or something else?) that caused a lot of hysteria at 2 AM and no sleep for the weary.

I had David today, had to take Capps to the doctor, plus finish my paperwork before next training session starts at 9 AM tomorrow morning. Plus, I had to pick up some materials from the office and get Daegan to allergy shots before 5:00. Let me just say, thank goodness for Bi-Lo rotisserie chicken!

I had two friends call me in the midst of my craziness today. Hope I didn't sound too whiny?

I have a lot of extra time away from home because I am training - the plan is for me not to be away from home too much when I've learned what I'm doing. It is going fine, just a lot to soak in - without my prior experience I would be a basket-case and probably already quit. Maybe?

So, it is going to be juggling act. Obviously, as I learn what I'm doing, it won't be as crazy or take as long. Plus, when the kids go back to school, it won't be as bad trying to find a babysitter. Yes, I realize five is a lot of "extras".

Deep Breaths!!

I think I just remembered there is a load of laundry in the machine that I put in last night, better go see if it is going to need a second washing - my house work is definitely going to suffer until I get a little more organized. ;)

And maybe my blogging too! :(


  1. Breathing issues in middle of night, most always= asthma in a child. it's classic.
