I recently read a post that gave me the idea to post this...a day in the life of French...
Because I work weekend nights, and also at my husband's shop during the week my life is anything but normal but to me busy is a good thing!
Sunday and Monday~~this is the day I usually try to catch up on laundry and housecleaning...(yuk) then by 2pm I am usually lying down for a nap ( or at least trying to!) I wake at 5pm get ready and off to work I go from 7pm to 7am...once I finish giving report and signing off of that job I then drive to DH's shop and check to see what mail has come in, checks, do the banking and set up the girl Friday for her daily chores. I then come home check emails, write a bit if it comes to me, Blog then off to bed around 11 or 12 noon, at this point I have usually been up for about 28 to 29 hours. I then get up around 5 or 6, check email decide what to do for dinner Monday evenings.
Tuesday~~ get up around 8 am grab some coffee check emails, and blog, do some banking online, get out some replies then off to the shop. My days there include answering phones, organizing and assisting with the scheduling, going over weekly events then usually a trip to the bank and grocery store, sometimes a stop at the post office then home to do the dinner and homework thing again. Catch up on emails, write a bit, then sit to veg in front of the TV for awhile. Everyone goes off to bed usually by 11pm and that's when I really get to write and blog.
Wednesday~~repeat of Tuesday only my son has Tae Kwon Do classes so off to take him to class after the day at the shop. Usually at the grocery store again!
Thursday~~ this is the day I usually get to the shop a little earlier. Today is the day I work on payroll, and taxes, off to the bank again squeeze in appointments this day, such as Dr. or dentist if needed. A visit to the accountant's office, back home for homework and dinner plans, off to Tae Kwon Do again, and laundry catch up again!
Friday~~ Off to the shop, finish up going over the week's appointments, send out bills, call in quotes, mail out finished jobs invoices, set up next week's schedule, off to the bank and home by noon. Laying back down trying to catch 40 winks until 5 pm then off to work again at 7pm to 7 am...
Saturday~~~ Once I get home from work around 8 or 9 am depending on the kind of night I had. Sit and visit with hubby, check emails, do some more banking, and off to bed around 11 am wake around 5 pm and tonight is the only night off I really have where I do much of nothing, except try to catch up on all the shows I have taped for later viewing. Then it starts all over again Sunday!
Now somewhere in all of this I have to try and find time to decorate again! I miss it! I want to work on my son's room, but by the time I get home in the evenings I am just mentally exhausted, and on weekends after working at the hospital I am mentally and physically exhausted! I have terrible back problems and the hospital job is taking a toll on it! Not sure how many years this back of mine has left pulling and tugging and fighting all the patients I have to deal with! I have a to do list longer than a football field, ( or at least it seems that way) for things that need to be done here at home! And now with Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner I know it will be time to add baking, and shopping to the already too long list! I have a friend that needs my help but feel terrible I haven't had the time to help her! So this coming week I am taking a day to spend some time with her;)
I would love to be able to write more often because I am truly enjoying it! So I am adding to my previous list of things I want to do.... I want to write and decorate! That's it!
Does any one else feel overwhelmed at times?
And with all of this I am considering taking another part-time job for some extra cash for Christmas...somebody shoot me! Have I put you all to sleep?
Had a mix up posting but Chapter 4 of Blogge'ville is NOW available;)
