Who Said It Isn't a Job?
The alarm goes off at 5:45 am, at 6 am I get up and get dressed having already set my clothes out the night before so that I can get dressed in the dark.
I stumble into the kitchen and press the button to get my coffee in my cup. On the way back to the bathroom I knock on kids doors to wake them up. I put on my make-up, holler at a kid, do my hair, do my daughter’s hair, make breakfast for the kids that want it, make sure hubby is fed, and pack my lunch.
I kiss 3 kids and hubby good-bye as the high schooler gets in the car at 7:15 am to be dropped off at school on the way to my new job.
I drop the kid off, drive 15 minutes, find a parking spot, and find a seat in my first meeting of the day. I listen and take notes, ask questions. All the employees are asked to do projects and told what needs to be done.
On to the next meeting.. Grab a protein bar between meetings.. No time for a real lunch. I am thankful for the apple and cheese I packed and ice cold water.
Finish up the meetings for the day and pick up the kids.. Figure out what’s for supper.. get kids fed, bathed, their homework done, a load of laundry washed and dried, kids put to bed..
Alarm set to start all over again.
BUT going to college isn’t a full time job…..
