Holy shit! OK I have to give a GREAT big hand to all the full time working Moms out there. You ladies are incredible. I don't know how you do it. I've now been working full time for 2 and a half weeks. This is HARD! I had no idea, I worked part time for a few years, it's hard but not too bad.
Full time is "OMG when the fuck do I get anything done?! " I'm lucky to have an 8 to 5 job and no weekends. However my husband can't drive because of his brain cancer, and I have four kids. So as soon as I get home the running starts, if I'm lucky the hubs has cooked dinner, and I can grab some bit of it on my way back out the door. I usually finally get home from all the shit I have to do after work, around 9 pm each night. Then, while I AM tired, I don't want to go to bed, I just want to chill for a while, so I end up stay up to 11:30/12:00. THEN I have to turn around and get up at 6:00 am to do it all over again the next day. STUPID! I just need to learn to go to bed but I don't want to!
I used to get groceries on Monday mornings, now if I don't go on the weekend I have to go after work. I don't even like shopping in the first place! Why can't they just deliver like the pizza place? I have to make important phone calls on lunch, and everyone I'm trying to call is on lunch so it's a phone tag of epic proportions. The house is a wreck, the laundry gets done on an 'as I need clothes for work' basis, and the kids and hubs are laying around doing nothing but jack shit all day long. That's about to change. They are going to think they just hit an episode of Wife Swap, cause it's time for MY RULES and everyone has to play.
I need a weekend from my weekend, I think we all should have mandatory 2 weeks vacation every month! Don't get me wrong I'm THANKFUL to have a job I like it, and I NEED it, but it's taking some getting used to. For those of you that have been doing it for years, I had no idea, you really are SUPER MOMS! So drink an extra margarita and take a nap, it's Sunday!
