I recently stopped to count the number of part-time jobs that I have. The total came to 5. FIVE! Obviously there needs to be some cuts in the months to come, but for right now this is life as we know it. This means life can be a bit harried at times even though I don’t technically work “full-time.” There’s a lot of give and take between me and Mr. Piñata right now to make it all work. But because of all these part-time jobs, every day of the week is so different and I can’t just simplify into days I work or don’t work, hence how long it has taken me to finally get to writing this post! I will just choose Wednesday though since both Wednesdays and Fridays I go to two different jobs. (Tuesdays I’m home, Thursdays I tutor in the evenings, Sunday mornings I have a part-time role at church and thankfully that fifth job is from home).
5:45am – Mr. Piñata’s alarm goes off and he starts getting ready as he has to be out of the door to teach at 6:45am.
6:30am – My alarm goes off. I cross my fingers that Little Piñata is still sleeping because I have until 7am to get myself almost completely ready for work. Thankfully even if he’s awake earlier he will talk and play quietly in his crib until 7am. I check my email and the weather and try to get moving! Usually though I’m running behind and am not entirely ready by the time he’s awake and ready to start breakfast.
7am – I start oatmeal on the stove for breakfast. Then Little Piñata gets up and I change and dress him.
