Things seem to constantly be in a state of flux around this house. Some weeks the hubby man is working from home. Others he is at the office working. Now, my oldest daughter is back to working it means a big change in my schedule as well.
Why you may ask?
She has two young boys. Both of them are under the age of five. I become the babysitter when she starts to work once more. Tomorrow will be the first day of her returning to an old job. I have very mixed feelings about it.
All in all, though, it means a change in my schedule. I will be back to working two jobs and taking care of the house. I’ll admit, I haven’t been particularly good at balancing one job and the house.
In fact, my writing life has slowed to a screeching halt. I’m barely starting to get it back on track now. Then you add in babysitting right in the middle of the day on top of it…
Well, there is going to be some adjusting happening. Especially as neither of the boys sleeps through the night any longer. They have my horrible habit of waking up right in the middle.
Tonight, I woke up because of my own wonky schedule. My poor daughter felt horrible, she thought they’d woke me up. I had her get the oldest changed and had her go to bed with the youngest. The oldest and I are out in the living room.
If I’m going to be up and he’s is going to be trying to sleep, I can still work. Even if he is behind me whining away. He will whine himself right to sleep. It won’t be the first night and she will get some sleep for work.
So, here I am digging into work nice and early. I’m not sure how my schedule will work better, but I’m sure given a few weeks we will get it all figured out. Hopefully. I do have Camp Nano coming up.
I’ve never been one that adjusts well when my schedule is all over the map either. Do you? How do you cope with so many changes?
Until next time, remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.
Thank you again for all of the support.
