Where was i?

It was bound to happen.  In seeking more work, while Sweetie is still job hunting, i think i have now officially run out of hours in the day because i have found more work than i can do.

If it all works out the way i think it will, this will be my schedule:

On Sundays, i will still be at church, often in the nursery, helping with clean up, helping with the homeless church, and going to prayer meeting on Sunday evening along with a Sunday evening Bible study group.

On Mondays, i will have Ms. S, and perhaps a second job (so considered because my primary job is housecleaning/janitorial work) when i leave her home at 2pm.

On Tuesdays, i will have that second job also, at a local retail store.  On the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month, the second job will be in the afternoon, after cleaning for Ms. V.

On Wednesdays, there will be Ms. G, followed by work at the second job.

On Thursdays, cue the same, working with Ms. P in the morning and the second job in the afternoon.

Fridays will alternate between Ms. R and Ms. J, with me cleaning the cat shelter each Friday evening as usual and going to rEcess once a month.

Finally, on Saturdays, i will go to second job.

In addition, of course, i still have to clean my house, cook meals, do laundry, iron, prepare a gigantic meal every Saturday for Brother-in-Law, The Mouth, grocery shop, run errands, and etc.

If you see a blur speeding by, it was probably me.  Throw me a banana or some spinach, please, i have to eat on the run.

  1. YES!!! It's the same here with work.
    FAMINE FAMINE FEAST (<---grateful)

  2. You'll be like those old cartoons, what was it, Speedy Gonzales? :) Look after yourself, eat healthily, rest when you can. You are important to so many people, including on Sundays. I always enjoy your blog, and even if you can't write quite so much in days to come, I'll understand and know you are doing good stuff for your family and others.

  3. All sounds doable as long as you don't waste time sleeping.

  4. Just be sure to take your vitamins so you don't get sick. Perhaps some of your older children and your Sweetie can help with cooking, errands and housework, too. Good luck!

  5. Yours are the people that "Built this city" with your staying willpower and good attitude. Eat well and take some time for peace.

  6. Let's hope hubby finds a job soon. I'm sure the kids will help out too. That would be most helpful. You sure do have a full plate.

    Have a fabulous day and try to find some time for you each day. ☺

  7. Oh my goodness, that sounds EXHAUSTING! You must be some sort of superhuman, with extraordinary powers. I can't believe how much you accomplish!!! Do hope this level of activity is temporary though; you need some chill time not to mention sleep!!

  8. I got tired just reading about all you do. I hope there's time in there for you to relax so you don't burn yourself out.

  9. oh my - I am not sure we will even see your blur!! I hope it all works out. A month and a half into school and I am already wanting Christmas vacation!
