Completely Insanely Busy Life

Well... my life is officially insane. I have a really good excuse for hardly posting at all this month. Seriously.

My day starts at 6:30. Wake up, get dressed, leave for class by 7:00. Class from 7:30-10:30, come home for a very short lunch and leave again by 11:30 to be at work for my first job from 12-5:30. After that I jet over to my second job and work there from 6-11pm. I finally get home around 11:30pm and dawdle a bit before drifting off too sleep. This madness is every Mon-Fri. My body is sooo tired. lol. I spend pretty much all day Sat/Sun resting on the couch.

In other news, I hurt my back at job #1 and am now in almost constant excruciating pain. Go me. The doctor said it's likely some tendon and/or ligament damage in my lower spine. Hurray. Yesterday it was so bad I could barely walk. Lucky for me that meant a day off. lol. I still hurt a lot today and have to leave for work in about 20 mins... still not sure if I feel up to going. If I miss today too though, that's $100 I'm missing out on. Decisions decisions.I've also been diagnosed with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Which is just great. So now I sleep with a brace on and feel like a big loser, but at least my hand falls asleep far less often now.

Hubbs and I see each other when I get home from work, obviously, and for a brief 20 mins at 7:30 when he brings me dinner at job #2. It's nice, but I feel like in seeing him less, somehow I get more annoyed at the little things when we actually do spend time together. I think that's something I'll have to work on. Like when I get home from my crazy long day and I see that the dishes that have been on the table from 2 days ago are still there... I don't think it's too much to ask that he cleans up a little since he's actually home and I never am. He got all pissy when I brought it up. Oh well. Our apartment can totally be gross and dirty. I'm not really home enough for it to bother me I guess.

School is going pretty well for both of us. I missed a few days due to my stupid spine, but I'm learning pretty quickly. Hubbs is rocking all of his classes as usual, so there's that. On Oct 1st he starts his nannying gig for our nieces and nephew which will be nice. It will mean that 3 days a week we won't get to have dinner together, but that's ok.

We still haven't been to the adoption agency yet. Mostly because my injury and busy schedule means we're only available weekends and I'm pretty sure this one is only open Mon-Fri. Good stuff.

One of my jobs only goes till the end of October, so I'm hoping things will be a bit less hectic then. For now though, I'm trudging along and trying to make the best of things.  Hope things are going well with all of you.

  1. It sounds very busy! I hope it slows down a bit for you at the end of Oct (just in time for the crazy holiday season!). I am sure you guys will find a routine and groove that works for you. My hubby and I had issues in the beginning as he worked so close by and only worked 4 days, and I was working 5 and have a 4 hr round trip commute on top. It took time to figure how to make time for each other and chores etc..He is now working 5 days, so another change. But all good.
