It was been one week of working full time…and not even really as I had Thursday off…and already I feel frazzled and stressed.
There are simply not enough hours in the day. Not enough hours to do everything that I have to do let alone everything that I want to do.
I feel like I am just rushing through life as if it is a series of tasks…I have to complete one just so I can get onto the next one…and they are never ending!
Every night this week I have come home, cooked dinner…thank goodness for my new amazing Soup & Co, fed Baby C, bathed Baby C, read to Baby C, got him ready for bed, put him to sleep, did some household administration or light chores, worked on my assignment, and then started to get breakfasts and lunches ready for the next day. I just spent my Friday night mopping the floors!
And weekends don’t seem to be much better.
Daddy R is gone…with our one car…all day every Saturday so one weekend day is lost in terms of being able to be productive. I might be able to do some laundry or a bit of cooking while Baby C is napping but that is about it. So Sunday ends up being this mad day where I try to cram everything…including some family time…in!
And then of course it is Monday again!
I am sure you moms who work full time all the time are laughing at me. And I’ll admit, I am soft!
I suppose it is all what you are used to…and I am used to never having to work more than one day in a row!
I didn’t know how good I had it!
Baby C seems to be coping okay. Although Wednesday morning…after missing our day together on Tuesday…was the first time ever that he cried when I left the house. It was heartbreaking. But after we spent the day together on Thursday…a trip to our favourite cafe, a tiny tots class at the local PCYC and a Big W shopping spree… it seems he has forgiven me as there were no tears this morning.
Daddy R and Puppy C are the ones really suffering from neglect…nothing but toast for lunch and no walks.
Thank goodness this working full time gig is only for a month!
Only three weeks to go!
I am booking myself in for an Ella Bache facial as a reward for making it through the month!
Do you work full time or part time?
How do you juggle work and family?
