Changing places

messy desk

2013 has been a time of change for me.  I’ve gone from being basically a stay at home mum to working every hour god gives and it’s been tough. Mind you I’m not getting paid for all the work I’m doing but when you start a new job (at lease this particular job) there’s such a huge learning curve that it’s forced me to have late late nights and up early to get Squidge ready to school and then I don’t stop all day. Sometimes (like the other night) I was up until 3:45 and up at 7:30. To say I’m frazzled would be an understatement.

I’m not complaining because I love the work I do. I really enjoy the work I do for Flea Ent and I’m a big believer in WW and want all my members to feel as fab as I do.  I think I just need to find a work life balance.  It’s a huge shift for me.  I’ve never been a mum and worked before and this is all new. The guilt of not putting Squidge to bed 4 nights out of 7. Not being able to attend her parent/teacher meeting. Of not being able to help out at her Rainbows troop. If I could double my day job income I’d drop  2 of my WW meetings and only work Thursday and Friday but that’s not going to happen so I’ll just tootle along doing the best I can for everyone-pleased I have jobs that are flexible.
