I'm a full time working Mom/Student.
Mackenna now... she will be 2 next month (Yikes)
I work on average of 50-60 hours a week at work, pulling in about 20 hours a paycheck in
overtime. Sometimes I get stressed because some weeks I hardly get to see my daughter Mackenna.
Not only do I work full time I go to School full time 30+ miles away from where we live.
We live in beautiful Lake Tahoe. Where it can snow 3 feet of snow in
a matter of hours. I love living here, but when you have a busy schedule such as
mine, the snow can get in the way.
My commute from home can turn from a 30 minute drive to 2 hours if we are having a
really good intense storm.
Oh, back to the point...
sorry, I can get off topic pretty easy. So, I have a insane schedule, from juggling: school,
work, Mackenna, home life, my relationship with Ian.
It's gets very tiring and stressful.
However, most people think that I'm crazy and wonder how I do all of this:
Ok, here is my secret RED BULL!
I do have a problem and addiction to red bull, but this is hardly how I
get through all of my daily tasks. I get through it because I have a lot of support. I try and
balance out my work/overtime onto the weekends working from home when Mackenna is napping. I study
after Mackenna is in bed and I've cooked dinner.
* Fall asleep with my books on my face
* Nap and Sleep fully clothed.
* Hit my snooze button more than 3 times
* I may not wear makeup every morning
* lack in my social life
* sleep in my car at work for my hour lunch
I was in the middle of my undergrad degree in monocular biology and 20 years old when I
found out I was pregnant with Mackenna Jane. I took 6 months off of school after she was born
and went back to school when she was 6 months old. It was the toughest semester of my life...
but, that story of the toughest semester is for another day..
