I work full time at Walgreens. This means that my work schedule is all over the place. Most often I work until 10:30 at night--sometimes later if we're busy. I get home and although physically tired, I'm wide awake. It takes a couple of hours for me to "wind down" and be able to go to sleep.
I'm beginning a career in marketing. A businessman has hired me to learn marketing, provided the tools for me to do so and is in the process of acquiring clients for me, while having me work on his project as well. This is a HUGE change and I LOVE it! But, it's time consuming.
I try to plan, purchase and prepare meals for the week. (At Walgreens I often work 7 days in a row.) This past month, I haven't been as successful as last month.
I bought a trampoline and really enjoyed it the first few weeks, but lately, I cannot seem to find even 10 minutes when I'm not busy or exhausted.
My bible study time has gone way down. I still have my morning devotions, but I'm embarrassed to say that I can't remember the last time I actually just sat down to read my bible.
Then of course there's house cleaning, laundry, and the new Earthbox I got to plant veggies on my porch....
I'm not trying to whine or complain; these are good problems to have! And I know there are many people who are single parents, working and going to school--I have no idea how they do it. I'm just saying that at this time in my life, balance has become an issue for me.
I have my next doctor's appt. on Thursday. I'm afraid that I won't have done very well. The first month I dropped 15lbs. I don't think I dropped more than 5 this month.
