Today was not the greatest day I’ve ever had. I’m not saying it was horrendous or the worst there has been, but I’m going to go through in a bit of detail you can see what happened. I suppose I want to ask the question to people who are reading this: is this a typical day for most people?
If it’s not, then just maybe I need to have a look at how I can change the life I have around me, because at the moment I’m really struggling with it.
I was so exhausted I woke up late and didn’t really realize the time, by the time the kids were into me and distracting me, time drifted by more quickly than I thought and we ended up doing the school run late. This really put me in a bad mood and wasted the more time as I had to take the kids in through different doors at the school.
Then I rushed off to work and worked for 6 hours. Then I rushed back to pick the kids up from school then took them back home. I then had extra work to do, and I was rushing around trying to do that on my computer while trying to deal with the kids homework and meals, just too much going on.
I have a beautiful new MacBook and I use it to do extra work on. I was rushing around and dropped it, cracking the screen. So on top of everything else today, I’ve now been sitting here searching the local companies who can do a MacBook retina screen replacement quickly.
So an hour was spent looking for MacBook screen replacement services while also trying to do normal work, and deal with kids and everyone else. I managed to find one that that had a the screen parts in stock.
By the time I fell into bed at 11 o’clock I was absolutely exhausted. So my question to you, and myself is does this seem like a typical day? And do other people keep this up to 5 days a week, and then have to deal with kids full-time on the weekend as well? All while still trying to fit in a basically full-time job, plus extra work in between all that?
I suppose I’m just wondering if I’m the only person on earth you never actually has any down time to spend on themselves?
