Work, work, work

I feel like all I've done lately is work. I had a meeting at work on Tues. Wednesday I worked 8.5 hours, Thurs. I worked 12, Fri. I worked 15, and then I went in Sat. at 7 am and got off Sun. at 7 am, yes that is 24 hours straight! It is ridiculous! I love helping the girls, but after a weekend full of constant managements and getting myself all bruised up, I was more than ready for some time off! They tried to call me in last night, but I refused to answer the phone! Tomorrow we have more training and I start my "regular" shift back on Wed. Whew! No wonder I'm so tired!

Last night Adam tried to do a kick flip on the skateboard and fell. We spent 3 hours this morning at Urgent Care only to find out it was merely bruised internally! He got a wrist brace and ibuprofen! Oh well, we got to spend the day together afterwards, just the two of us! It was really nice to get the time out together, I feel like I've missed out on a ton working so much!

I'm debating whether to hang in with this job or not. Until I decide though, my life is really hectic so I apologize if I'm not around as much as I'd like. Thank you to all who have left me comments.

Part-time never ends up being what you think. Hang in there for awhile, and throw in the towel if it's not working out! Glad your son is o.k. Better safe than sorry on the Urgent Care visit.

You know my feelings on your job. It is one of the hardest jobs to have, and unless you've either had a kid in one or worked there, that getting bruised up part might seem like a joke. It's not. The girls can get so aggressive it's scary.

I hope that things even out and you are able to stay because I truly believe that you could make a difference. But if it gets too much and starts hurting your own kids then you won't have a choice. Before you quit, though, please be sure to talk to the head of the place to see if anything else can be done. Wouldn't it be nice to come up with a win/win scenario?

Glad your son was OK. The boys in our neighborhood get so rowdy on their boards that I'm amazed that most of them aren't sporting casts of one variety or another.

Was I ever that brave?? Yep. And it was fuuuuun! LOL!

Hang in there. xoxoxo and TTFN

Woah. I should just cut and paste your words and put them on my blog. I haven't had ANY TIME AT ALL to do anything but work lately and my blog is suffering!

Do what you can and listen to that little voice in your head. It is usually right and it will guide you accordingly.
