Pushing onward

November 12th, 2015 at 06:01 pm

I just need a day or two to catch up with my life, that's all! I have a few projects for my coursework that can use some more attention, and I've found it is easier to work on those projects when I have larger chunks of time. A good weekend of homework time and I should be in a good spot.

I have been saving as much as I can to put myself in a better position for the future, but much of my extra cash has been diverted to school recently. I should only have a few part-time semesters left. When I complete this program I know that I can secure a position that will improve my financial picture. I just have to push forward with the plan.

In the meantime, I can always pick up part-time hours if it turns out that I need to bring in more money. I just don't want to unless I have to, because, well, I'm tired. My brain is tired from being "on" all day long. My body is tired from being on the move all day. When I get home to my own children it is refreshing to spend time with them. Of course, now that they are older they aren't too interested in spending time with me but at least we all enjoy a meal together and hang out a little before or after dinner. But the option to get more hours is there if it turns out I need them.

Nothing has been said out loud, but the writing is on the wall. I am trying to make smart choices for my kids and me.

My mom is back in the hospital, too, another infection. The doctors have this one under control, but I may be making another trip out there for Thanksgiving. I was planning on spending the long weekend at home, but we'll see.

    I know what you mean about being tired from being constantly "on" due to a massive workload, I'm in the same boat. Just try to take care of yourself and schedule some "off" time too.. I love the weekend chunks of time where you can get a massive amount done, or at least put yourself in a good place, but I try to treat it like a work day (which finishes slightly earlier) and then allocate some sort of relaxing activity. I'm much more alert first thing in the morning too. Good luck, keep pushing on!!

    Try to take care. The extra education should pay off! Keep up the good work!
